‘‘The pop­u­lar­ity for next year’s Sum­mer Con­cert Tour cer­tainly demon­strates that us ki­wis have a hunger for great mu­si­cal tal­ent from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s,’’ Calvert said.

She said the mu­sic is pop­u­lar with those who grew up lis­ten­ing to the artists, and also a younger au­di­ence who lis­ten to that era.

‘‘We’re look­ing for­ward to de­liv­er­ing a fan­tas­tic day of en­ter­tain­ment in Queen­stown, Taupo¯ and Whi­tianga, along with show­cas­ing our amaz­ing coun­try and peo­ple to our in­ter­na­tional guests in Jan­uary.’’
