John Farnham - one off show at Auckland’s Villa Maria Estate Winery this Summer

20 September 2018 - 0 Comments

The legend, the voice, Whispering Jack himself will return to New Zealand in March to play at Auckland’s most idyllic outdoor venue, Villa Maria Estate Winery. Performing works from his extensive catalogue including all the hits you know and love, Mr John Farnham is set to thrill his kiwi fans:

“Forty-eight years after his professional debut – John Farnham’s voice was still staggeringly spectacular.” Sydney Morning Herald.

John Farnham has been celebrated widely for more than just his contribution to music. In 1996 he was made ‘An Officer of the Order Of Australia”, and in 1987 named ‘Australian Of The Year’ then in 2003 John was officially inducted into the “Australian Music Hall Of Fame.”

Over an impressive 50 year career Farnham has remained one of the most accomplished and highest-selling artists in Australasia. The album Whispering Jack has gone a massive 24 x platinum in Australia alone! His ability to light up the hearts of his audience has never waned and his sheer love of being onstage is apparent at every concert.

Two Strong Hearts, Pressure Down, A Touch Of Paradise, Burn For You, Sadie The Cleaning Lady, Age Of Reason, You're The Voice and so much more.... and lucky for fans the talent does not stop there.

Joining Farnham at Villa Maria Estate Winery in a very rare appearance are New Zealand favourites OpShop. The Auckland band led by Jason Kerrison forged a loyal following throughout the 2000’s with extensive touring and an abundance of superb radio hits. Song’s such as One Day, No Ordinary Thing, Maybe and Love Will Always Win were the official kiwi soundtrack of the time. OpShop have released three full-length albums and achieved #1 Top 40 NZ chart positions and this upcoming appearance promises to get the audience up on their feet!

Completing this stellar line up are young virtuoso’s The Miltones. The five-piece have made a real name for themselves in the kiwi music scene over the past few years. Their sound described as bluesy Americana folk-rock, The Miltones are a hard working live band with their sights set on an international career. Last year saw the band release their self-titled debut album to critical acclaim and since they have continued to gig live and grow their devoted fanbase. Watch the video for The Miltones latest single Disappear.

Tickets for this outstanding event go on sale at 12.00pm NZDT on Monday 1st October from www.ticketmaster.co.nz
