Michael Crawford To Sing At Cup Village Concert

Latest Events At AMEX Cup Village:

International TV personality and performer Michael Crawford will be giving two concerts in the American Express New Zealand Cup Village on January the 29th and 30th 2000. Michael was in Auckland over the weekend and expressed a keen interest in the America's Cup Regatta and is looking forward to returning to New Zealand in the New Year.

Twenty one super yachts are now berthed in the AMEX Cup Village. When you consider New Zealand used to be lucky to get two visits a year from such crafts it is certainly something special to have them all here. The largest so far in the marina is the 40 metres American super yacht Philanderer that arrived on Friday. The next big one due in is Independence, which is expected later this week; it is 53 metres in length. Jim Clark's Hyperion is now due in two weeks time.

The visitor numbers continue to grow. Since October 1st the AMEX Cup Village has hosted 703,829 people. Last week approximately 160,000 people came through.

The America's Cup Regatta is certainly doing wonders for New Zealand getting international TV coverage. Due to the keen interest back home in Italy over how well the Prada team is going (10 races, 10 wins), over the last week there has been 8 hours of television time devoted to their efforts here in New Zealand.

Also showing the popularity of what is happening here the AMEX Cup Village website has so far received just under 300,000 hits since October 1st.

The next major ticketed event in the AMEX Cup Village is The Exponents Concert on November 12th, and then other events planned for the month include a free concert with the British band S Club 7 who has their own TV Show. This is at midday on November 20th and then on November 26th the Australian band Silverchair perform. All ticket sales are through Ticketek.

There are a lot of good reasons to feel joyful about this outcome. It is what so many young voters – the best hope for the country’s future – wanted.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
