Fans and the cu­ri­ous have been fizzing since it was an­nounced Ala­nis was to make her first ap­pear­ance here since 1998.

Best known in NZ as the lead singer from Men At Work, Colin Hay was the man who fa­mously rhymed lan­guage with Vegemite sand­wich on the hit song Down Un­der, back in 1983.

That song topped the charts not only in Australia and NZ but also in the USA, the UK and many other coun­tries around the world. Other great sin­gles fol­lowed such as Who Can It Be Now and Be Good Johnny. Mov­ing for­ward Hay has long since es­tab­lished him­self as an ac­claimed solo artist. Hay comes to the Sum­mer Con­cert Tour 2018 hav­ing shared the stage with the likes of Milk Car­ton Kids, Kings of Leon and Ringo Starr’s All Starr Band and be­ing pub­licly cited as an in­flu­ence by artists as dis­tinct as James Het­field of Me­tal­lica, Jeremiah Fraites of The Lu­m­i­neers and Troy San­ders of Mastodon. Armed with a new al­bum — Fierce Mercy — this in­flu­en­tial and cel­e­brated front man is champ­ing at the bit to kick off pro­ceed­ings.

The Sum­mer Con­cert Tour 2018 will in­deed be THE con­cert of the sum­mer. Be there!
