HAMILTON GAME – TWO WEEKS TO TIP OFF!
ANBL champions SKYCITY
Breakers only North Island pre-season game
in Hamilton is just two weeks away and it
looks like Claudelands Arena will be
running at full capacity! On Saturday September
15th, with their full playing roster of stars
including Cedric Jackson Tom
Abercrombie, CJ Bruton, Dillon Boucher, Mika Vukona
and Daryl Corletto, the Breakers are
looking to be in winning form against the Wollongong
Hawks as they head into the season proper.
The game tip off time has been brought forward to 5pm because at 7.30pm that night the mighty All Blacks take on South Africa and now fans can check out NZ’s two most successful sports teams back to back.
Come early to be part of the build-up because pre-game entertainment includes chart topping artist Massad, a hot dance squad, secondary school curtain raiser, 3 on 3 demonstration, games, giveaways, and plenty more.
Back to perform live centre court, Massad is fresh from a recent Australian trip which saw him writing and recording with two of Australia’s best songwriters - Michael Szumowski and Stuart Crichton. Michael is a multi-award winning artist that has written and produced with numerous acts globally while Stuart has worked with artists such as Kylie Minogue, Delta Goodrem, Guy Sebastian, Vanessa Amorosi, Pet Shop Boys and Sugababes. Massad’s debut single Tear My Heart Out went to #3 on the NZ charts and, with the follow up Forget About Me, made the IMNZ top 10 airplay charts. He has just released his third single, Waiting from his Overture EP. http://www.letthepeoplespeak.tv/artists/massad
