Ten years ago, hot on the heels of the hit sin­gle “Bathe in the River”, jazz and soul songstress Hol­lie Smith re­leased her de­but al­bum, Long­player. It reached multi-plat­inum sta­tus and was fol­lowed with sold-out tours and NZ Mu­sic Award gongs (Best Fe­male Solo Artist, Break­through Artist). She cel­e­brates its suc­cess with an an­niver­sary tour (na­tion­wide, Septem­ber 14-Oc­to­ber 6) and then opens for Bri­tish 80s pop sen­sa­tion Ali­son Moyet (na­tion­wide, Oc­to­ber 13-16). Also in the main cen­tres this month: Alice Cooper with spe­cial guest Ace Frehley (Oc­to­ber 27-28); Lionel Richie and Chic fea­tur­ing Nile Rodgers (Oc­to­ber 19-21); An In­ti­mate Evening with Justin Hay­wood of The Moody Blues fame (Oc­to­ber 13-16); and for the first time in 40 years, Glen Hughes Per­forms Clas­sic Deep Pur­ple Live (Septem­ber 26-Oc­to­ber 3).
