Second Summer Concert Sells Out
GREENSTONE ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS
ALAN PARSONS LIVE PROJECT
Sold Out sign goes up for another ICEHOUSE, Alan Parsons Live Project and Bonnie Tyler concert
Record ticket sale demand has continued for the upcoming Summer Concert Tour with all 16,000 tickets for the Queenstown concert being snapped up.
The Gibbston Valley Winery Summer Concert sell out announcement comes on the back of the Taupo Summer Concert sell out two weeks ago.
With two of the three concerts in the tour now sold out, promoters Greenstone Entertainment are encouraging everyone who haven’t already bought a ticket to see Australian rock legends ICEHOUSE, Alan Parsons Live Project, and the unmistakable voice of Bonnie Tyler, to secure their ticket for the Whitianga Summer Concert on Saturday the 29th of January before they too are gone.
Demand for the Whitianga Summer Concert (the final show in the three date tour) has already surpassed last year’s total ticket sales. Coinciding with Auckland Anniversary Weekend organisers say it’s the perfect opportunity to make a weekend break of it on the Coromandel - one of New Zealand’s favourite holiday locations.
Greenstone Entertainment CEO, Amanda Calvert comments “Our philosophy has always been to provide great value for money so our fans can experience some of the best artists and music that the 70’s and 80’s has to offer. Ticket prices for the remaining Whitianga Summer Concert are only $99, we offer free entry to kids 14 and under with an accompanying adult, and concert goers can bring along their own food and non-alcoholic beverages. We’ll again have bus transport options available as well, making it easy to get to and from the venue. The three legendary acts performing next year have a huge list of hit songs which will be sure to have everyone on their feet in January.”
Tickets for the Whitianga Summer Concert can be purchased through the Greenstone Entertainment website www.greenstoneentertainment.co.nz or Ticketek for $99 plus booking fee.
There are also group purchase prices available on the Greenstone Entertainment website.
And if you’re in the Coromandel, there are a limited amount of local tickets available for only $89 plus booking fee at these outlets:
