John Rowles - New dates added

New dates
JOHN ROWLES celebrates new album & DVD with intimate concert

Due to demand for our iconic performer JOHN ROWLES, new dates have been added to his tour of New Zealand in November.

The legendary artist -- celebrating 40 years since hitting the UK charts with “If I Only Had Time” and the release of his brand new album THE SINGER & THE SONGS and his DVD JOHN ROWLES IN CONCERT -- will now perform in Palmerston North, Hastings as well as in a special homecoming concert at Whakatane. A second Wellington concert has also been added to the itinerary for this intimate concert series that already includes New Plymouth, Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch.

The album sees John’s voice at its spine tingling best with an amazing rendition of Sinatra’s ‘My Way’, long a fixture of John’s live shows amongst the highlights. ‘The Singer & The Songs’ tour will be exclusively dinner and show performances at some of our nation’s finest hotels. This tour will be unforgettable and a very up close and personal experience with JR for fans young and old.

His CD and DVD will be available from all major retailers as of this week.
