Press Release:

Pacific music legend Daniel Rae Costello returns to New Zealand

One of the Pacific's most well-known musical sons has touched down in New Zealand for a short tour that is expected to be a sell-out.

Daniel Rae Costello, whose hit songs include Samba and Take Me To The Island, will perform three shows in Auckland over the next two weeks; the first of which is this weekend and already selling out fast.

Promoter Temisi Uhi said it was an honour to have Costello in the country, given his huge popularity in New Zealand, particularly amongst the Pacific Island community.

"He's a big deal here and it's all about bringing the music to the people. His songs are the jams everyone knows. They're the ones we all used to play at the parties in the garage back in the day. It's feel-good music,'' Mr Uhi said.

" Danny Rae's a great musician and we're very lucky to have him on this tour.''

Costello will be accompanied by upcoming back-up band TCB (Taking Care of Business) Riddim Section. The band, made up of members from across Auckland, have already worked together with a number of popular musicians and bands, including reggae band Three Houses Down and Fall In Love singer, Sammy J.

Costello's first big gig will be held at Thirsty Whale, in Three Kings, on Saturday March 1. He will play at the Greyhound Lounge, Manukau Sports Bowl, on March 8 and his last gig will be at the Apia Way nightclub in Mangere on March 21.
