NZ Pop Princess To Open For Superstars


NZ Pop Princess To Open For Superstars


Chart-topping Kiwi pop princess JAMIE MCDELL has been signed to open for global superstars Ronan Keating and Brian McFadden at their New Zealand concert at Trusts Stadium Arena on 27 February.

The announcement coincides with news that her latest single ‘Life In Sunshine’ has achieved gold status on the NZ music charts and on the eve of the Mangawhai teenager releasing her new single ‘Angel’. Jamie released her debut album ‘Six Strings And A Sailboat’ in November, featuring #1 NZ singles ‘You’ll Never Take That Away’ and ‘Rewind’.

Great tickets are still available to see these three fabulous artists perform at Trusts Stadium Arena on 27 February. Click here for details.

As a solo artist Ronan Keating has sold more than 25 million records worldwide, alongside 30 million records with Boyzone. Add this to Brian McFadden’s sales of 40 million records worldwide and that’s a serious amount of records the two artists have sold between them.

Ronan’s soulful pop voice has won him millions of fans around the world and New Zealand is no exception. As one of the X-Factor’s most popular mentors, he is a regular visitor to New Zealand.

I can’t wait to play songs from my new album Fires to my Kiwi fans,” Ronan says. “And to go on tour with one of my best mates is just a bonus!”

Apart from Ronan’s incredible work with Boyzone, he has had an extensive solo career. After Boyzone’s 1995 hit with Father and Son, Ronan burst back onto the charts in 1999 with the smash hit When You Say Nothing At All. This was followed with more hits, including Life Is a Rollercoaster, Lovin’ Each Day, If Tomorrow Never Comes and his latest single Fires. In 2009, Ronan released the poignant Songs For My Mother (recorded in memory of his late mother).

Brian McFadden -- the popular judge from Australia’s Got Talent – became a household name through Westlife. Since leaving the band, Brian has gone on to carve out a successful solo career, with hits including Almost Here and Just Say So. In 2008 Brian released Set In Stone and has just released his brand new studio album The Irish Connection which sees Brian record some of his favourite tracks with some of his favourite artists, including his very good friend, and touring partner, Ronan Keating!

My favourite thing to do is perform,” says Brian. “I can’t wait to play some new songs, some old songs and some classic favourites in New Zealand.”

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
