The critically acclaimed artist who is as prolific at writing award-winning songs as she is at collecting them (including the prestigious APRA Silver Scroll), Tami Neilson is also renowned for her impressive and commanding live shows.

Neilson’s dynamo performances can really pack a punch and combined with consummate entertainer Robbie Williams’ glittering hit-laden set-list, this will undoubtedly be an evening full of showmanship and rollicking good times.

Singing her heart out along endless roads and stages, from her days as a young girl in Canada touring with the Neilson Family band, opening for the likes of Johnny Cash, to her full blossoming in New Zealand as a formidable talent in her own right, Tami Neilson has won the Tui Award for each of her past four albums.

The release of her explosive album “Dynamite!” received rave reviews in MOJO, The Guardian (named “Top 10 Best Country Music Album”), climbed to #1 on the NZ Music Charts and won the title of 2015’s “Best Country Music Album.”

Her follow-up album “Don’t Be Afraid” was also released to critical acclaim, and debuted on the NZ Album Charts and the Independent Music Charts at #1, proving that the powerhouse that is Tami Neilson is a force to be reckoned with.
