Plus1 proudly announces that award winning LA-based Kiwi singer-songwriter Greg Johnson will return home in March for a very special 10-date tour stretching from Kerikeri in the north to Ōtepoti Dunedin in the south.
More than 30 years since Greg first made his mark on the New Zealand music scene with his breakthrough single ‘Isabelle’, his melodic, story-telling songs have continued to hit the radios, charts and hearts of listeners nationwide.
Here’s your chance to secure early tickets, in the Plus1 presale from 8am today!
Music lovers can look forward to hearing his iconic songs like ‘Don’t Wait Another Day’, ‘Liberty’, ‘Save Yourself’, ‘It’s Been So Long’, ‘Now The Sun is Out, Looking Out On Monday’, ‘I Got Opinions’ and many more.
Greg has an enviable songbook to choose from – a collection of songs which has seen him recognised with two Aotearoa NZ Music Tui Awards, nine top 20 albums, and a very loyal fanbase.
Says Greg: “I’m really looking forward to heading back home for nationwide shows and that beautiful late summer sunshine. As the crow flies, it’s 1000 miles from our northern most concert in Kerikeri to our southern most in Dunedin, and so we’ll relish all the adventures in between, on our 1000 Miles tour.”
Accompanying Greg on all dates is guitarist Ben King, with Wayne Bell (drums) and Mark Hughes (bass) performing on selected dates.
The 1000 Miles tour starts on Friday March 15 in Kerikeri, then Greg will perform in Whangārei, Howick, Nelson, Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin, Hamilton, at the Waiheke Jazz Festival, and he ends the tour in Auckland on Saturday 30 March,
Greg will perform songs from right across the 12 albums of his career, including new favourites from recently-recorded material in Los Angeles. The first single from the new recordings, ‘Rooster Tail’, will be released in December.
Tickets for all Greg Johnson shows are on immediate presale at Plus1 from 8am Tuesday, for 48 hours. Details at plus1.co.nz
