Sewell is con­firmed as the head­line act for Cox Partners Christ­mas at the Park 2018. We are thrilled to have an in­ter­na­tional per­former of Ge­off’s cal­i­bre in­volved in this pop­u­lar cel­e­bra­tion on Satur­day, 15th De­cem­ber 2018. Al­though Sewell is based in Lon­don, he has a per­sonal con­nec­tion with Hawkes Bay hav­ing at­tended High School in Have­lock North. He be­came an in­ter­na­tional clas­si­cal cross­over star in the “opera band” AM­ICI FOR­EVER be­fore leav­ing the group in 2006 to em­bark on a solo ca­reer. Sewell has had three No.1 al­bums with Am­ici’s “The Opera Band” and “De­fined,” and his own solo de­but, “Be­lieve” reach­ing over 3.5 mil­lion al­bum sales world­wide. With Am­ici For­ever, he was nom­i­nated for a Clas­si­cal Brit Award in the UK for best al­bum. Other per­form­ers at the event also have a strong con­nec­tion with Hawkes Bay in­clud­ing soft rock band BLUE SA­LOON and APRA award win­ner Dan­ica Bryant, a se­nior stu­dent at Napier Girl’s High School. A va­ri­ety of other pop­u­lar artists will en­ter­tain the crowd through­out the evening begin­ning at 5:00 pm and cul­mi­nat­ing with chore­ographed fire­works, which have be­come a much-an­tic­i­pated high­light of the evening. The Hawkes Bay Re­gional Sports Park is host­ing Cox Partners Christ­mas at the Park this year - the first time the Per­ci­val Road venue has been used for a ma­jor per­for­mance event.
