The Dunedin musician, who has terminal cancer, performed to a packed house in what could be his last show.

The former Netherworld Dancing Toys lead singer started the gig with his recent story, including how in October 2017 he was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer and told he had nine months to live.

He and his band then captivated the audience with new songs and old favourites.

Black is recording a new album, Songs For My Family, with other Dunedin musicians.

Show entry was by donation, and all proceeds went to cancer research at the University of Otago.
