Grace Jones’ Queenstown concert sells out

Grace Jones’ Queenstown concert sells out

Tickets to the first-ever New Zealand show of legendary singer-songwriter and style icon Grace Jones have sold out.

The limited-capacity concert at Queenstown Events Centre, which was announced on Tuesday morning, was all but sold out within the first 12 hours, with the final tickets going today.

The Warrior Queen will perform to a crowd of 1900 with her full band on March 2, 2018.

There will be no more South Island shows announced.

One of the original Queens of Disco, Jones has been pushing the boundaries in music, fashion, art and life since the 1970s. Now aged 69, next year will see her arrive in NZ for the exclusive one-off South Island show.

“We’re delighted this show has been met with such a huge response from Grace Jones’ Kiwi fans,” says organiser Alex Turnbull of Rhythm & Alps.

“We knew it would be a sell-out, and fans are in for a treat. This show will be a spectacle of music, fashion and art – it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Queenstown.”

Meanwhile, tickets for Rhythm and Alps events over Christmas and New Year are on track to sell out. The SchoolboyQ show on December 28 at the Lake Hawea Hotel is likely to sell out in the next few days. The Rhythm and Alps festival, held in the Cardrona Valley on December 30-31, is on target to hit its 10,000 capacity in advance of the festival. This year’s festival features Fat Freddy’s Drop, Tash Sultana, Little Dragon and more.
