More FM Summer Vineyard Tour Announces 2013 Line-up, Dates & Venues


The wine will be chilled, the acts will be hot and the surrounds picture perfect. The More FM Summer Vineyard Tour is back for 2013, heading to a vineyard near you this coming February.

One of New Zealand’s best loved acts, OPSHOP, are set to headline the countryside convoy, alongside Aria Award winning Australian Artist Missy Higgins. Iconic Kiwi artists Che-Fu and Aaradhna will join them on the road, performing a highly anticipated Soul set together, as well as their classic solo hits.

Kicking off the tour in Tauranga in mid-February, the More FM Summer Vineyard Tour will also be heading to the Hawkes Bay, Martinborough, Nelson, Christchurch and Auckland.

With a stream of massive tracks and three multi-platinum selling albums, OPSHOP are one of New Zealand’s best loved bands, firmly lodging themselves into the nation’s musical lexicon with popular singles such as ‘One Day’, ‘No Ordinary Thing’ and ‘Maybe’. With the first single from their new album due to hit our airwaves shortly, the band promise new material alongside the old favourites for the More FM Summer Vineyard Tour – as well as some surprises in their live show.

Singer/songwriter Missy Higgins returns to the country off the back of the release of her latest album The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle, featuring the beautiful new single ‘Everyone’s Waiting’. The ever-charming performer, who recently played two sold out shows in New Zealand and has just finished touring the USA with Gotye, will be playing all her hits - some ofwhich have featured on such shows as Grey’s Anatomy, Brother’s & Sisters and Smallville, including the popular track ‘Scar’.

Responsible for string of classic kiwi anthems, Che-Fu is a pillar in the New Zealand music storybooks. As a founding member of the legendary Supergroove and a platinum selling solo artist, Che is recognisable for standout tracks such as ‘Fade Away’ and ‘Misty Frequencies’.

Joining Che-Fu onstage is award-winning R&B songstress Aaradhna. The duo will perform a Soul set together, as well as their own tracks. Calling on influences such as Ruth Brown, Otis Redding and Amy Winehouse, Aaradhna’s forthcoming new album Treble & Reverb is jam packed with songs reminiscent of late 50s and 60s doo-wop style.

Shaping up to be another stellar year of finefood, wine and music, the More FM Summer Vineyard Tour is coming to a town near you in 2013:
