The weather was fine and the crowds were enthralled when the Tornadoes and New Zealand's Shane Cortese took to the stage for 4 shows over 2 days at the Canterbury A & P Show in Christchurch mid November. The Tornadoes opened with their unique brand of rock and roll with Shane joining the band for a segment of nostalgic hits.

A bonus for Show patrons was New Zealand's Rock and Roll legend, Johnny Devlin, joining Shane and the Tornadoes on the stage during the finale of each show with with a knockout version of Ray Charles "What'd I Say".

All in all, a successful Canterbury A & P Show on the Thursday and Friday with the help of Shane, Johnny and the fabulous Tornadoes.

Saturday night was a sensational event at Christchurch's Hornby Working Mens' Club with headline act Johnny Devlin, Shane Cortese and the Tornadoes.

An almost packed house danced the night away to great music with a much loved band, a living legend and a current TV and music star.  Johnny Devlin, Shane Cortese and the Tornadoes delivered a special brand of rock and roll and nostalgia that won't be forgotten for a long time.

The night didn't end there. Upon returning to their hotel in the Christchurch CBD, the earth shook with yet another earthquake aftershock measured at 4.9 on the Richter scale. It seems the Tornadoes continue to attract the big quakes.
