SOL3 MIO Announce Two Wellington Shows

SOL3 MIO Announce Two Wellington Shows
SEPTEMBER 28th & 29th
MICHAEL FOWLER CENTRE

Following a critically lauded and completely sold out tour of New Zealand earlier this year, Civic Events is proud to present the incomparable SOL3 MIO at Wellington’s Michael Fowler Centre on Sunday September 28, and Monday September 29th, 2014.

The Samoan trio from Auckland, made up of tenor brothers Pene and Amitai Pati and their baritone cousin Moses Mackay, say they are thrilled to return to Wellington and to their favourite concert venue. “The show we did at the Michael Fowler Centre on our album tour in February was magical, the best of the tour. We are excited to return and to be performing new material for such a great audience”says Pene.

Since its release on November 15, 2013, the trio’s chart-topping eponymous album spent sixteen consecutive weeks in the number one position and has to date achieved an incredible six times platinum sales certification. The debut set was the biggest selling album in New Zealand in 2013.

“As the rest of the world is now falling under the spell of Sol3 Mio, we are delighted to have the chance to fit these two special shows into their busy schedule” says Civic Events co-promoter Campbell Smith. “And what is even more exciting is that we will hear new songs, delivered with that irrepressible humour that the whole of New Zealand has come to love”.

Be quick. These shows will sell out fast.

Howard Davis Review: The Contemporary Relevance Of Denial

Denial has all the hallmarks of a riveting courtroom drama. Based on a 1996 British libel case that author David Irving brought against Lipstadt, the movie has been criticized as flat and stagey, but it nonetheless conveys a visceral clarity of vision and sense of overwhelming urgency. More>>
