Bryan Adams – NZ Summer Tour 2018

The Sound and Neptune Entertainment are proud to present the legendary Bryan Adams for a four-date New Zealand tour this summer.

Bryan Adams will bring his GET UP world tour to some of the country’s most iconic and picturesque summer venues early next year, with shows in Matakana, New Plymouth, Mount Maunganui and Hawkes Bay.

Adams was last in NZ in 2013 with his Bare Bones tour, but this will be the first time since 2003 that he will bring his full live band! Kiwi legends Dave Dobbyn and Jordan Luck Band will be supporting at all four venues, making this a tour not to be missed this summer.

The Grammy Award-nominated Bryan Adams has spent the last three decades making music history. He’s sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making him one of best-selling music artists of all time.

He rose to fame in 1983 with his CUTS LIKE A KNIFE album, which contained the hits ‘Straight From The Heart’, ‘Cuts Like A Knife’ and ‘This Time’. His smash LP RECKLESS followed in 1984, delivering three of his biggest hits – ‘Summer of ’69’, ‘Heaven’ and ‘Run To You’. In 1991 he topped charts around the world with the epic power ballad, ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It For You’.

His other hits include ‘Can’t Stop This Thing We Started’, ‘Kids Wanna Rock’, ‘Please Forgive Me’, ‘The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You’, ‘Lets Make A Night To Remember’, ‘Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?’, ‘When You’re Gone’ (with Melanie C), and ‘All For Love’ (with Rod Stewart and Sting).

“Bryan Adams performed a selection of the biggest hits from his 13-album catalogue with remarkable energy, repeatedly high tailing it from one end of the stage to the other during several guitar solos”
– The Telegraph

Two of New Zealand’s most-loved and recognisable fixtures, Dave Dobbyn and Jordan Luck Band (of the Exponents) will both play sets, opening for Adams at all four venues, completing a talent-packed line-up that’s guaranteed to be one of the must-see shows of early 2018.

Dobbyn started his career in Th’ Dudes and was one of the main creative forces in DD Smash, before going solo and releasing hit after hit, including ‘You Oughta Be In Love’, ‘Slice of Heaven’, ‘Loyal’ and ‘Welcome Home’.

Jordan Luck was the lead singer and songwriter for the Exponents for several decades, with countless hits to his name, including ‘Why Does Love Do This To Me’, ‘Who Loves Who The Most’, ‘Victoria’ and ‘Whatever Happened To Tracey’. The Jordan Luck Band will be playing all the classic the Exponents hits on this tour.


This is an all ages event. Children 2 and under are free. All others as advertised

Bay Dreams Pre Party 2018

THE BAY DREAMS PRE-PARTY 2018

After the success of our warm party on January 1st this year, we decided we’ll return with a line up that warrants us to move it outdoors for thousands more people!

Join us on January 1st and catch this incredible line up, live!

PRE-PARTY PRESS RELEASE

Bay Dreams announces massive line-up for pre-party
Including an exclusive NZ set by Danny Brown, UK’s Queen of wonky funk NAO, The Black Seeds, and many more.

One of summer’s biggest events – Bay Dreams 2018 – will kick off in style with a pre-party that

Back for a third year running, Bay Dreams takes place at ASB Baypark in Mt Maunganui on January 2, with an epic line-up that includes headliners DJ Snake, Machine Gun Kelly and Pendulum. But even before the one-day extravaganza gets underway, a stellar line-up of acts from around the globe will open festivities on January 1.

Topping the list is US rapper and MC Danny Brown who has been at the forefront of the hip-hop experimentation movement since his 2011 breakthrough album XXX. He went on to release ATROCITY EXHIBITION – one of the freshest and boldest-sounding rap albums in recent memory; a sonic swirl inspired by the work of Talking Heads and Joy Division that sounded like nothing else from the past or present. His appearance at the Bay Dreams pre-party will be Brown’s only show in New Zealand.

Also on the pre-party bill is NAO. The Queen of her own self-described “wonky funk”, the British singer-songwriter has been riding high since releasing her debut album FOR ALL WE KNOW in 2016, which saw her nominated for ‘Best British Female Solo Artist’ at the Brit Awards.

Some of Aotearoa’s finest talent completes the first pre-party line-up, including The Black Seeds, who have just released their new record FABRIC; Dunedin’s very own Summer Thieves with their distinct blend of reggae, hip-hop, rock and funk; festival favourites State of Mind; and Mana Lion, who are guaranteed to impress with their mix of soul, funk, drum ‘n’ bass, gangsta rap, hardcore punk and everything in between.

For the first time, the pre-party will be held on Bay Dreams’ massive outdoor stage.

This is only the first installment of acts to be announced for the pre-party and with tickets to the festival proving more popular than ever before, punters are urged to get in quickly.

Tickets are available as an ‘add-on’ in your Ticket Fairy account and range in price from $69 to $89. Camping for the pre-party on January 1 is also available as an add-on and start at $40.
