Three of New Zealand's most talented and treasured singer/songwriters, Tim Finn, Dave Dobbyn, and Bic Runga, embarked on a 26-date theater tour of their homeland in August 2000; Together in Concert: Live offers a sampling of these highly successful performances. The three musicians share the stage while performing some of the best-known songs from each man's catalog, including Tim Finn's "Six Months in a Leaky Boat" and "Persuasion", Bic Runga's "Sway" and "Drive", and Dave Dobbyn's "Whaling" and "Just Add Water", among others. While this show has the warmth one would expect, it's far from being just an "evening with" nicety; playing with a tight band, minus the expected acoustic guitars, they rock really hard at times, especially on the Split Enz classic "I See Red".
