P R E S S R E L E A S E No 3

‘Rock2wgtn’ Adds The Next Superstar

Name To Wellington’s ‘Monster’ Rock Weekend In Easter 2008.

Capital C: Concert Joins Forces With Nz’s Other Big Concert Promoter, Pacific Entertainment And Following Last Week’s Announcement That Legendary Band Kiss Will Headline The First Night At Rock2wgtn Now Delivers Another Superstar To The Programme.

Headling The Second Night Will Be The First Nz Appearance Of The Rock Superstar


Promoter Phil Sprey has again unleashed another suprise announcement following hard on the heals of the news that the Easter double headed ROCK2WGTN festival would see legendary band KISS return to New Zealand after many years and that Richard Taylor’s WETA Studios were providing their magical touches to the huge event.

Say Sprey, ``We promised Wellington and New Zealand a massive festival to rival any in the world and we haven’t finished yet.’’ ``Having OZZY join us for his very first NZ Concert and headlining or final night at the Westpac Stadium will put a crown on top of what will be a ‘concert phenomenon’. He added ‘ we set out to make this an experience that will entertain Kiwis from in their teens right through to the 50 plus age group,’’ `` if anyone misses this weekend in the Capital they will miss a piece of music history’’. Other bands and artists including local talent are still going to be announced and the effects and party plans for the city are all still to be made public.

``Continue to watch this space.’’
