Winery Tour 2017 18 February 2017

The iconic summer tour returns for its 10th year featuring Brooke Fraser, Bic Runga, and Benny Tipene.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, The Winery Tour will be returning to Waipara Hills on 18th February 2017 to celebrate Kiwi summer in the best way possible, with outstanding music and great wine amongst the vines.

Los Angeles-based Brooke Fraser will return home to headline the 2017 Tour, following the release of her first career retrospective album “A Sides”, which will include her upcoming single “Therapy”. “The Winery Tour is quite simply a dream to play, there is no better way to tour New Zealand. I am looking forward to getting home to play all the favourites from my career so far to the best fans in the world” says Brooke.

Having played on the very first Winery Tour back in 2007, Bic Runga returns to tour the vines once again. Bic will be celebrating her induction into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame (the youngest ever inductee) and her brand new album “Close Your Eyes” (including the single of the same name), showcasing her interpretations of some of music’s most classic songs. Bic adds “I’m excited to rejoin The Winery Tour family, to hit the road again and to play all my songs and some of my favourite covers in the most spectacular venues”.

Opening the show will be The Winery Tour newcomer Benny Tipene, an exciting new talent rapidly making a very big name for himself in NZ. Benny exploded onto the airwaves with four hits from his debut album ‘Bricks’ including the #1 platinum single “Walking on Water” and top ten gold single “Lonely”. Benny is busy completing his second album in time for the Winery Tour, an album which will include his brand new single “Where Love Comes From”.

“Touring all around New Zealand, playing amazing places, sharing the stage with two musical icons – what a great way to spend summer!” says Benny.
