Labour leader Jacinda Ardern caught up with music legend Chris Knox today during a street meeting in Auckland's Grey Lynn.
Ardern took to the megaphone in traditional campaign style under the canopy of the Moa at the West Lynn shops before a round of selfies and hugs and deep conversations.
Knox, who lives nearby, suffered a severe stroke in 2009 but is now quite mobile.
Ardern started the campaign trail in Kingsland, meeting kids, parents and a dog named Coco.
Ardern agreed to a request from Benny George to tape a voice message to friend of his, Tash, who is recovering from ovarian cancer.
She accepted some paper work from inveterate activist Penny Bright, an OIA on the Tamaki regeneration project.
