Paul Potts’ Sunday Rotorua concert almost sold-out

Paul Potts’ Sunday Rotorua concert almost sold-out

Local Paul Potts fans who are yet to purchase tickets to the British performer’s Rotorua concert are being urged to do so without delay as a theatre sell-out is expected.

The winner of 2007 ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ competition is in New Zealand for his ‘One Chance – Live in NZ’ tour, and will be performing at Rotorua’s Civic Theatre on Sunday [20 April].

Rotorua District Council’s Creative Communities Strategy lead, councillor Glenys Searancke, said organisers were expecting a full house, and with less than 100 tickets left to sell, she is urging local fans to get in now before it is too late. She said many out-of-towners were coming to Rotorua for the concert.

“Paul Potts is one of the world’s big names in popular classical music of recent years and he’ll be performing in the intimacy of our very own Civic Theatre. This provides a wonderful opportunity to see him up-close, and to hear classics like Puccini’s Nessun Dorma that’s become his signature piece since he became a worldwide sensation just seven years ago.

“His concert is going to be something very special. He’ll have orchestral accompaniment and will be joined on stage by a wonderful up-and-coming and talented New Zealand singing star, former Lockwood Aria winner Anna Hawkins,” said Mrs Searancke.

Tickets to the show are $98.20 and are available from Rotorua Convention Centre’s ticket outlet.

Potts’ fans also have the opportunity to enhance their concert experience with a pre-show ‘wine and dine’ option, with a three-course menu for an extra $52 per person.
