Winey Tour headliner sells out North America tours

Winey Tour headliner sells out North America tours

Brooke Fraser really is the hottest NZ artist right now, making big waves on the international stage as she tops charts abroad and at home.

Brooke’s latest album Flags debuted at #59 on the Billboard Top 100 in the US, and reached as high as #4 on the iTunes USA chart and #3 on iTunes Canada.

Closer to home Flags debuted at #3 in the Australian National Albums Charts and at #1 right here in New Zealand, where the album is already approaching double platinum.

Fraser has just concluded a 22 date sell out tour of the US, Canada and London, playing legendary venues such as the El Rey theatre in LA, the Opera House in Toronto and Scala in London.

She now heads back to NZ for Christmas to recharge, spend time with friends and family before hitting Australian theatres in January. Her shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane all sold out on the first day and second shows have been added in all those cities.

In February Fraser brings her US band back to NZ to headline the fifth annual MORE FM Winery Tour; 19 spectacular outdoor shows in wineries and estates from Tutukaka in the North to Dunedin in the South, supported by fellow chart toppers OPSHOP and Midnight Youth.

After only a very brief main centre tour of NZ in October, Brooke’s looking forward to bringing her well honed show back to New Zealand to play to Kiwi fans:

"To launch Flags with a sold-out tour of the U.S. has been exciting and extremely encouraging. We're now chomping at the bit to get back down under and recharge over Christmas before getting back on the road in the New Year and playing to home crowds.

“There's a great buzz about these tours in our camp and we can't wait to get out and thank in person all the fans who've been so loyal and supportive at home!"

Brooke Fraser also headlined the 2008 MORE FM Winery Tour. Full show information can be found at www.winerytour.com and www.brookefraser.com.

Gordon Campbell: On Yesterday’s Big Parliamentary Air Kiss To China

In order to obtain support from the two major parties, Act Party deputy leader Brooke Van Velden twice had to soften the language of her parliamentary motion yesterday condemning China’s persecution of the Uighurs. The key word “genocide” was deleted. Evidently, the kind of resolution passed by a conservative government in the UK proved to be far too tough for a centre-left Labour government and a centre-right National opposition to countenance. Yesterday, the two major parties were united in their fear of retribution from China... More>>
