Wellington based promoter Capital C: Concerts, currently bringing Elton John and Bon Jovi for one-off concerts to NZ this summer, promised Wellington would not be missed out of the company’s 2008 calendar. So the news is hot.

Phil Sprey of Capital C: Concerts and his US partner Dan Allen have joined forces with another NZ promoter to make Easter Saturday and Sunday in Wellington the big destination. Says Sprey, “We are developing concerts in NZ that go beyond the basics and will deliver total experiences to a very broad demographic audience.” “This is for the baby boomers and their kids alike and appeal to more than one generation.”
