Sorry, this event’s been and gone
|Sat 7 Oct ’06||
Where: Isaac Theatre Royal, 145 Gloucester St, Christchurch City
One of the world’s most celebrated guitarists, Tommy Emmanuel, is set to return to New Zealand .
Emmanuel – who has dazzled international audiences with a unique style he simply calls "finger style" for over 40 years – has won thousands of fans in New Zealand during past visits. His Kiwi bond goes even deeper, having played with Dragon during the 70s and 80s, touring with them on Tina Turner’s Break Every Rule tour in 1987.
In his storied career, Emmanuel has set sales records that have yet to be broken and performed with hundreds of musical legends including Chet Atkins, Eric Clapton, Sir George Martin, Hank Marvin, Joe Walsh, Stevie Wonder and Keith Urban.
His flare and unforgettable showmanship promise a night to remember when he returns in October.
Tommy Emmanuel “is unquestionably one of the most gifted artists of our time.”
Jim Ohlschmidt, Acoustic Guitar Magazine
