California-based Kiwi singer-songwriter Greg Johnson is hitting the road in late November, bringing great songs and festive cheer to music fans across the country.
Johnson and his superb band (Ben King, Wayne Bell and Josh Logan) will perform five concerts around New Zealand, with Johnson promising “wonderful guests, mayhem and frivolity, themed Christmas cocktails and a festive surprise or three”.
“I can’t wait to tour the Christmas Cocktail Club show around New Zealand for this first time in a decade. Reminiscent of the now legendary “Coast” shows of the early 2000’s we’ve selected venues where we can have some fun with the crowd, and collectively enjoy a great night of songs and blarney”.
TOUR DATES ARE:
Friday 15 November: BLENHEIM – Anderson Room, ASB Theatre
Saturday 16 November: CHRISTCHURCH – Cassels Blue Smoke
Friday 22 November: AUCKLAND – The Hollywood, Avondale
Saturday 23 November: WELLINGTON – Meow
Sunday 24 November: PAEKAKARIKI – St Peters Hall.
Tickets for all shows go on sale 9am Friday 6 September at Plus1.co.nz
For the Auckland show, the historic Hollywood Theatre will be transformed with cabaret-style table seating downstairs and theatre seating on the mezzanine.
Greg’s fanbase continues to grow across the country with close to three decades of touring his extensive collection of hits, including Isabelle, Don’t Wait Another Day, Liberty, Save Yourself, It's Been So Long, Now The Sun is Out, Looking Out On Monday, I Got Opinions and more.
Accolades include two Tui NZ Music Awards, eight top 20 albums, and a coveted Silver Scroll, for 'Liberty'.
