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’. Official!/JamieMcDell

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.”

Bus pickup will be available at 5:30pm from bus stop 7020 at 32 Customs St East (Between Commerce & Gore St). Neither The Trusts Arena nor Eventfinda take any responsibility for missed buses.
The return buses depart the Trust Arena at 11pm with drop off at the same stop.

Are available for $85pp and include entry to our exclusive Brassiere, an Irish themed dinner, drink on arrival and car parking. Book at Eventfinder
