Three Iconic NZ Acts Together for the First Time

There are only four weeks to go until the Taupo Fairway concert is here, so get your hat and sunscreen ready, and get in quick because tickets are selling fast!

New Zealand’s national treasures The Topp Twins – aka identical twin sisters Lynda and Jools Topp – have performed around the world as an original country-music comedy duo for more than 25 years and continue to delight audiences from the alternative to the mainstream. No other act has such unique cross-over appeal, and are equally at home performing in front of a gay/lesbian audience as they are in a Rugby stadium as the opening match entertainment.

Wilson Dixon has been on the Country circuit for about twelve years now. He has played all over the world; throughout the U.S. and Canada, in Australia, N.Z, the U.K. and in Samoa.

Along with Brendon Dugan, these iconic acts are arriving in Taupo, New Zealand on March 22nd at the Taupo Golf Club for an afternoon of laughs, music and hopefully sun! Set amongst the picturesque landscape and on the manicured grounds of the Taupo Golf Club – just a swing away from Taupo’s town centre.

Tickets: www.ticketek.co.nz / 0800-Ticketek $59 or 2 for $99 + booking fee, children under 14 are FREE with an accompanying adult.
Times (subject to change): Gates open 1pm, support band, Brendon Starting at 2 pm, Wilson Dixon at 3pm, and the Topp Twins at 4pm.
Refreshments: A wide range of quality food, beer and wines are available - concert-goers can also bring their own food and non-alcoholic beverages. FREE water is available at all venues.

**Onsite parking available.
