Engelbert Humperdinck announces New Zealand tour

11 July 2018 - 0 Comments

The legendary Engelbert Humperdinck is bringing 50 years of hits to New Zealand early next year with his critically-acclaimed ‘The Man I Want To Be’ Tour.
 
Presented by MJR in partnership with APA Touring, the British ‘King of Romance’ will play three shows - Bruce Mason Centre in Auckland on Thursday, February 28, Isaac Royal Theatre in Christchurch on Saturday, March 2 and the Opera House in Wellington on Monday, March 4.

Tickets go on sale Monday July 16 at 12pm from www.mjrpresents.com
 
In a career that spans five decades, Humperdinck is renowned for some of the biggest, most popular anthems in music, from Release Me and Ten Guitars to Last Waltz and Quando, Quando, Quando.

He has generated sales in excess of 140 million records, including 64 gold albums and 35 platinum, four Grammy Award nominations, a Golden Globe and stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Las Vegas Walk of Fame. 
 
He has performed for the Queen four times, several presidents and many heads of state. He has recorded everything from the most romantic ballads to movie theme songs, disco, rock, and even gospel. 
 
Humperdinck - who is now in his 80's - emerged on the music scene in the 60's with The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. He became great friends with Elvis Presley and the two legends often performed each other’s songs. His first single in the charts was Release Me, which went into the Guinness Book of Records for achieving 56 consecutive weeks on the charts. It was No. 1 in 11 countries. 
 
The following decades saw Humperdinck touring the world to sell-out crowds. And even today, the legend still takes great pleasure in every moment on stage.
 
Humperdinck’s‘The Man I Want To Be Tour’ takes its name from his latest album released last year, which marked his 50th anniversary in the music industry and also served as love letter to his wife Patricia of 53 years who is suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease. The album, which is made up of original tracks and covers of contemporary songs, including Ed Sheeran’s Photograph and Bruno Mars’ Just the Way You Are has received rave reviews.

Do not miss your chance to see one of the music’s greatest living legends live and performing 50 years of hits.
