Civic Events, promoter of the annual Classic Hits Winery Tour, is proud to reveal the tour dates and line up for the 2014 Summer Tour: Headliners are New Zealand music legends The Exponents, joined by pop superstar Stan Walker and the heavenly voice of Breaks Co-Op.
Now in its 8th year, the 2014 Classic Hits Winery Tour presents 17 shows across 16 spectacular outdoor venues from Tutukaka in the North, down, for the very first time, to Invercargill in the South.
Since performing their first ever gig on vocalist Jordan Luck’s 20th birthday, The Exponents have earned an unparalleled reputation for iconic, smash-hit laden, sing-along live shows, performed to generations of fans up and down New Zealand.
The Exponents’ four founding members have come together and will be bringing all of their hits along with a very special stage show designed specifically for the Winery Tour. Seeing The Exponents live is a rite of passage for New Zealanders, seeing them perform in the stunning Winery Tour settings will be something unique and not to be missed. It’s going to be quite a party.
Filling the middle slot and fresh from a sell-out nationwide tour is Stan Walker. A formidable live performer with a raft of hits that rivals even The Exponents, Stan Walker is quite simply a musical force.
Stan will be bringing his full live stage show to the Wineries and not only will he be performing all his well-loved hits, he will be introducing songs from his stunning new album “Inventing Myself” including singles Take It Easy, Bulletproof, Inventing Myself and the brand new Like It's Over.
Completing the three-band line up is Breaks Co-Op, returning to the stage for the first time since their massive hit “The Otherside” ruled the airwaves and singles chart a few years ago. Featuring the incredible velvet and honey voice of Andy Lovegrove, Breaks Co-Op have a brand new single Sounds Familiar out this month and will release their first new album in 8 years in January 2014 - right before the Winery Tour kicks off.
