Coast is thrilled to support Robbie Williams on The Heavy Entertainment Show Australasian Tour. Today confirms that he will bring his mammoth tour to New Zealand in February!
The arena spectacular will take in Auckland’s Spark Arena on St. Valentine’s Day, Wednesday 14th February before heading to Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr Stadium on Saturday 17th February.
“The heavy entertainment show,” explains Williams, “is every single moment on earth – we’re all part of the heavy entertainment show.”
Opening to rave reviews across Europe, The Heavy Entertainment Show Australasian Tour will see Williams perform a glittering hit-laden set spanning his entire career, along with a couple of surprising covers thrown in for good measure.
From his breakthrough global smash hit ‘Angels’, through pop anthems ‘Let Me Entertain You’, ’Millennium’, 'Come Undone', 'Kids', 'Feel' ‘Rock DJ’, and more, Robbie Williams’ unparalleled catalogue is a career-defining generational soundtrack.
“… his set was a jubilant journey through a life in pop… the perfect stadium singalong from pop’s ultimate entertainer”. – The Standard UK
“… the night belonged to Robbie, who brought the house down with his showmanship and stage presence… fans spilled out onto Lansdowne Road knowing they had just witnessed a born entertainer do his thing on the big stage.” – Dublin Live
Williams is without doubt one of the most acclaimed and charismatic live performers of his times, a position that was cemented and celebrated by his record-breaking 2003 Knebworth performances over three nights in front of 375,000 people.
As a solo artist, Williams has sold over 77 million albums, and has six of the top 100 best-selling albums in British history. He has chalked up 14 number one singles and has claimed a whopping 18 Brit Awards, which is double that of any other artist.
Williams last toured Australasia in 2015, when he wowed local audiences with his epic Let Me Entertain You Tour, which saw him perform countless sold out arena shows around the country. Of that tour, the Herald Sun wrote, “Robbie Williams is the most entertaining male pop star of his generation… His charismatic mixture of American Brat Pack with British old-school theatre and pantomime helps him effortlessly charm the arena in an instant.”
Currently touring The Heavy Entertainment Show across Europe and the UK, Williams will be in fighting fit form when he lands in New Zealand. One of the world’s finest entertainers, Williams is absolutely not to be missed when he returns to Auckland and Dunedin next February!
First in a stellar lineup of supporting artists is TAMI NEILSON, who will warm crowds on both New Zealand dates. Likened to music icons Amy Winehouse and Sharon Jones, Tami’s soulful music styling comes straight from the golden age of country and rockabilly. Awarded the APRA Silver Scroll, New Zealand’s most prestigious music award, this acclaimed chart-topping artist is a force to be reckoned with.
THE BAMBOOS will join The Heavy Entertainment Show tour as special guests on the Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth arena shows, as well as Geelong’s sold out A Day On The Green performance. The eight-piece powerhouse have single-handedly redefined Australian soul music, carving out a signature sound recognized around the world. Across seven studio albums, they have achieved five ARIA and three APRA Award nominations, and have worked with vocalists as diverse as Tim Rogers, Aloe Blacc, Megan Washington, Daniel Merriweather and more.
Joining Robbie for the Yarra Valley’s An Evening On The Green is multi-platinum Brisbane sibling super-group, SHEPPARD. Their number one single Geronimo has become one of the biggest Australian hits of the decade and has given the band more than 400 million streams, a top 40 hit in America and went platinum in 21 countries. Their latest single Coming Home is an infectious, feel-good anthem that is currently #1 on the independent radio chart. The anticipated sophomore album is slated for release in 2018.
Indie-pop sensation CHRIS WATTS takes the stage as first support at Geelong’s A Day On The Green. He has previously supported Sir Elton John, his latest single Wrong Or Right features Amy Sheppard, and with songs that are full of infectious chords, robust rhythms and soaring vocals, Chris Watts is a local star on the rise.
Opening to rave reviews across Europe, The Heavy Entertainment Show will see Robbie perform a glittering hit-laden set spanning his entire career, along with a couple of surprising covers thrown in for good measure.
From his breakthrough global smash hit Angels, through to pop anthems Let Me Entertain You, Millennium, Come Undone, Kids, Feel, Rock DJ and more, Robbie Williams’ unparalleled catalogue is a career-defining generational soundtrack.
One of the world’s finest entertainers, Robbie Williams is not to be missed on his upcoming Australian and New Zealand dates!
