Update: Venue has been changed from James Hay Theatre to Christchurch Town Hall.
When Sol3 Mio announced North Island only dates for their Back to Basics tour, two things happened. Tickets sold like hotcakes, and South Island fans made it clear that they wanted their own tour ASAP. Today Sol3 Mio confirm that they’ll take the Back to Basics tour to five South Island centres in May. Tickets go on sale at 9am today at sol3mio.com.
“It’s been amazing to see the response to the Back to Basics tour,” said Sol3 Mio’s Pene Pati. “Five of our North Island dates have already sold out.”
“South Island fans have made it clear that we have to go down to see them, and we’ve found a week in May where we can fit in five concerts. I’ll be flying home straight after performing La Traviata in Hawaii just to make sure the South Island doesn’t miss out on seeing us this year!”
The Back to Basics tour features Sol3 Mio as they started out - three voices and a piano, singing songs from the operatic canon and popular music songbooks, and telling stories in the inimitable Sol3 Mio style. The South Island dates purposely bring New Zealand’s favourite musical trio into theatres, so they can interact with their audience like they did in the early days.
