Tami Neilson to Open for Robbie Williams in Dunedin

Tami Neilson to Open for Robbie Williams in Dunedin

“A great big canyon of a voice.” - DOWNBEAT

One of New Zealand’s most beloved and dynamic songstresses, Tami Neilson, will join global pop phenomenonRobbie Williams for the Dunedin concert of his Heavy Entertainment Show World Tour.


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.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
