Taranaki Daily News Issues Retraction via stuff.co.nz
9 August 2017
Earlier in the week we were sent an article via stuff.co.nz regarding including a 4th venue in The Summer Concert Tour 2018.
We need to address this article with our valued Greenstone customers. Greenstone Entertainment and Alanis Morissette are NOT and NEVER have been in discussion with The Taranaki Council to host a 4th concert. This information is completely invalid. We know that there are lots of venues out there that would love to offer this line up, who wouldn't!
The ONLY 3 venues that Alanis will be playing at are;
- Gibbston Valley Winery Saturday 20 Jan
- Taupo amphitheatre Saturday 27 Jan
- Whitianga Waterways Sunday 28 Jan
Below is the retraction that was posted via stuff.co.nz for The Taranaki Council;
The "slim chance" council believed it had to be added to Alanis Morisette's upcoming tour of the regions has been stamped out by the music promoter.
Last week it was announced every 30-something millennial's favourite alternative-rocker will return to the country after 20 years for a three-date music festival in January.
And while the Canadian musician was solely taking her 90s classics such as Hand in my Pocket and Ironic to the provinces, Taranaki was forced to swallow a Jagged Little Pill when it was left from the line up.
But New Plymouth District Council venues manager Nelita Bryne had said if promoters needed a fourth venue the council would do all it could to secure the concert.
"If there was an opportunity to host a fourth concert we would be doing all we can to secure it," she said.
"There's a very slim chance."
The 43-year-old was playing as part of the annual Summer Concert Series put on by Greenstone Entertainment who had contracts with the three venues named in her coming tour.
However, a Greenstone Entertainment spokesman has since said there will be no deviation from the promoted tour venues in Taupo, Queenstown and Whitianga, and Morrisette would not be performing in Taranaki.
Morissette would tour alongside George Thorogood & The Destroyers and former Men at Work star Colin Hay.
The pop-star's last New Zealand performance was a free concert in Auckland and played out to more than 15,000 people.
Despite potentially missing out on having Morissette come to Taranaki, the Bowl will be filled this summer when it packs out with fans of British folk legend, Cat Stevens.
The commemorative A Cat's Attic Peace Train Tour, marks the 50th anniversary of his first hit single and debut album, Matthew and son, and would also stop in Auckland and Christchurch.
