Stan Walker Announces 'World Tour of New Zealand’

Stan Walker Announces 'World Tour of New Zealand’ with 23 Shows Across the Country

Coming to a Town Near You In September & October 2013

Stan Walker will well and truly hit the road this year, taking on an extensive national tour that will see him travel from Whangarei to Invercargill, playing 23 shows across the country through September and October.

Stan Walker's World Tour of New Zealand may well be the longest anyone has attempted in recent New Zealand Music history, and there are some compelling reasons as to why Stan is just the man to do it.

One of the country’s most popular artists, Stan has sold over 170,000 singles and close to 100,000 albums to date, collecting 5 New Zealand Music Awards along the way.

Stan made his acting debut in February this year, playing the lead role of Turei in the feature film Mt Zion. Mt Zion debuted at #1 at the NZ box office, quickly taking over $1 million, and securing a successful Australian release. Mt Zion also won the NZ Box Office Achievement Award for Highest Grossing New Zealand Film for 2013 and the Flicks People’s Choice Award for Movie of the Year. Take It Easy, Stan’s single from the film, also held a number one New Zealand chart position and gained platinum sales.

From there, Stan moved to his role as a judge on the debut series of The X Factor New Zealand, where he is currently gracing primetime TV screens in the high-rating show.

Stan as also recently released The Complete Collection – a limited edition package combining all three of his albums with a bonus Take It Easy single - and will release a new track Bulletproof on May 31.

Commenting on his upcoming tour, Stan says "New Zealand - if you’ve got some people and a hall with power, I’m coming to you! It's going to be heaps of fun and I promise you'll get a great show. I can’t wait“

Scoop Review Of Books: From Here And There

Being Chinese: A New Zealander’s Story
by Helene Wong.
This is the fascinating story of Helene Wong, born in 1949 in Taihape to Chinese parents: her mother, born soon after her parents migrated here, and her father, born in China but sent to relatives in Taihape at seven to get an education in English. More>>

Chiku: Hamilton Zoo's Baby Chimpanzee Named

Hamilton Zoo has named its three-month-old baby chimpanzee after a month-long public naming competition through the popular zoo’s website. The name chosen is Chiku, a Swahili name for girls meaning "talker" or "one who chatters". More>>

Game Over: Trans-Tasman Netball League To Discontinue

Netball Australia and Netball New Zealand have confirmed that the existing ANZ Championship format will discontinue after the current 2016 season, with both organisations to form national netball leagues in their respective countries. More>>

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

ALSO:

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.

Scoop Review Of Books: Tauranga Books Festival

Escape to Tauranga for Queen’s Birthday weekend and an ideas and books-focused festival that includes performance, discussion, story-telling, workshops and an Italian-theme morning tea. More>>
