Summer Concert Tour 2017
The 2017 Summer Concert Tour was a complete sell out when over 40,000 fans snapped up tickets in record time to see ICEHOUSE, Alan Parsons Love Project & Bonnie Tyler Perform across the three date tour in Queenstown, Taupo & Whitianga.
Queenstown was the first concert in the tour, and although it was unusually chilly with showers later in the day, it did nothing to deter the 16,000 strong crowd from rocking out the Gibbston Valley venue. Perfect kiwi summer conditions greeted both artists and the 15,000 fans the following weekend who danced the afternoon away at Taupo Summer Concert before the tour headed up to Whitianga the following day for the final 2017 show where a sell-out crowd of 14,000 took full advantage of the Auckland Anniversary long weekend.
