NEW SHOW ADDED


The Seekers

50th Anniversary
‘Golden Jubilee Tour’
to NZ in November

** The ONLY surviving chart-topping band from the 60s,
anywhere in the world, with all the original founding members **


Due to overwhelming demand, a second Auckland concert is announced for the supergroup THE SEEKERS on their ‘Golden Jubilee Tour’ – celebrating 50 years since they first sang together.

The second concert will be staged on Wednesday 26th November at The Civic theatre in Auckland. Final tickets have also just been released for the Wellington concert onSaturday, 22nd November. All other concerts on the tour are selling fast so fans are urged to act without delay to avoid disappointment.

The New Zealand tour follows sold out tours of Australia and the UK, including two spectacular concerts at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Together, THE SEEKERS will take their fans down memory lane with the songs, stories, memorabilia, messages of congratulations from music industry contemporaries, and video clips on the big screen.

As the centrepiece of their two-hour performances, the legendary group who put Australia on the international pop music map, will raise the roof with their chart-topping hits “I’ll Never Find Another You”, “A World Of Our Own”, “The Carnival Is Over”, “Morningtown Ride”, “Someday One Day”, the legendary “Georgy Girl”, and many unforgettable crowd favourites.

The Seekers are the only surviving chart-topping band from the era with all their original founding members.

They were also the first group ever to reach No.1 in the UK charts with their first three singles - not even Michael Jackson or Madonna achieved that! Having sold over 60 million records globally, their success was truly international, and in the USA they were the first Australian group to reach No.1 with their Oscar-nominated hit “Georgy Girl”.

Fifty years on, The Seekers are still touching the hearts and souls of fans – some who’ve been with them from the very start – and some who’ve hopped on board along the way.
