Hypnotist Peter Powers Is To Tour NZ

Sensational Hypnotist Peter Powers Is To Tour New Zealand Later This Year.

After the huge success on the Australian TV in the FOOTY SHOW, UK based Peter Powers has been asked to appear for a third time while he is on tour across the Tasman. His ‘Naughty, Naughty Hypno’ series in the Britain which first brought him to the fore is again the attraction of his current performances.

Gone are the days if the ‘old style’ hypnotist who had people barking and acting stupid in a ‘safe’ way. As sampled on the well-know TV show his act takes the genre to a titillating edge. This is definitely an adult show and will leave audiences reeling in the isles.

Wellington based concert promoter Capital C Concerts will tour a new super adult production from the top to bottom of the country, visiting 20 towns and cities. Director Phil Sprey says, “not only will Peter show his extraordinary skills in this risqué show but we will be incorporating some very contemporary themes as well. The Rugby World Cup will be on during his tour and we have already included some special skits to highlight this event.’

As a bonus to his stage shows, Peter Powers wants to break a world record for the number of people to be simultaneously hypnotised plus try to get the largest group to quit smoking at once.

‘We are looking for one of the main centres to jump out and grab this opportunity and help host and promote this event” says Sprey. “Peter doesn’t guarantee a 100% success rate but his UK work in this therapy has met with extraordinary success.”
