Titanium, Dane Rumble to Headline at Coca-Cola Easter Show

Press Release
Tuesday 22 January, 2013

Tickets go on sale today for two live concerts featuring hot young acts Titanium and Dane Rumble at the all new Coca-Cola Easter Show, ASB Showgrounds, March 28th – April 1st.

For the first time in the Easter Show’s history there will be separately ticketed live acts two nights in a row, adding an exciting aspect to the event not seen before.

Teen heart-throbs Titanium and Dane Rumble will each be headlining their own shows, Titanium on Friday the 29th of March and Dane Rumble on Saturday the 30th, both with support acts Jupiter Project and Massad.

A competition launched today will also see every ticketholder go into the draw to party like a rock star with three friends, flying by helicopter to one of the gigs.

Coca-Cola Easter Show event director Mark Frankham says this year’s Coca-Cola Easter Show will be unlike any in its 160 year history.

“With Titanium and Dane Rumble playing, the all new rides, attractions and of course fireworks to end every night with a bang, the ASB Showgrounds will be the place to be this Easter weekend,” says Frankham.

The Coca-Cola Easter Show by day is a wonderful family experience and now by night it will have all the bright-lights and thrills and spills of an exciting international festival.

About The Coca-Cola Easter Show

The Coca-Cola Easter Show is the largest, most exciting live event in Auckland, with a circus, entertainment, rides and characters and is also home to the A&P Show.

An iconic Auckland event in every sense, the Coca-Cola Easter Show is all about bringing town and country together in New Zealand's largest family event.

The Coca-Cola Easter Show had its beginnings 168 years ago, beginning as a purely agricultural event to help the fledgling colony develop a sound farming economy. The first A&P show was held in 1843. The aims of the event were to demonstrate excellence in agriculture and animal husbandry, and to promote the breeding of stud animals to establish and increase the farm animal gene pool in the emerging colony.

In 1910, the Auckland Showgrounds were established on Greenlane Road with the first show on the new grounds in 1911. This is now known as ASB Showgrounds, which is owned and operated by the Auckland Agricultural Pastoral and Industrial Shows Board.

Since then the Show has gone from strength to strength. Visitor numbers each range between 50,000 and 82,000 people as the show remains an exciting event for all the family.
