New Zealand country music icons Eddie Low, John Grenell and Dennis Marsh are set to join the most successful home-grown music tour series of all time, The Highway of Legends, when it hits the road in October and November. The tour will see icons of the entertainment celebrating with their adoring fans, in a series that set the benchmark several years back as a commercial and entertainment triumph for New Zealand artists.
Internationally acclaimed singer, guitarist and comedian Kevin Greaves – son of Kiwi country music icon, the late Rusty Greaves – offers of taste of Nashville, joining the Highway of Legends for the first time ahead of his tour with the brothers of Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings throughout the US and Europe.
Promoter and country music legend, guitar king Gray Bartlett tours again, teaming up with one of New Zealand’s foremost guitar stars, Chet O’Connell, and journeyman Brendan Dugan -- New Zealand's answer to Johnny Cash -- will front the tour as MC.
Star fiddler Marian Burns and the All-Stars band will also be featuring in the show, bringing a fresh new edge to what has been New Zealand’s biggest selling tour series ever.
With introducing new faces and music in mind, top younger country artist Brendon Ham will also join the line-up in his home town of Blenheim and then in Greymouth.
The Highway of Legends tour kicks off in the home of country music, Hamilton, on October 28 and runs through to Invercargill on 22 November, taking in 17 venues. The tour will also visit Rotorua, Tauranga, Auckland, Taupo, Napier, Palmerston North, Wellington, Wanganui, New Plymouth, Whangarei, Blenheim, Greymouth, Christchurch, Timaru and Dunedin. Tickets go on sale on Monday. Booking details below.
The tour will be a precursor to the biggest tour of America since Crowded House. The Highway of Legends have been signed by Revolution Concerts and Events America to perform in major venues on the East and West Coasts of the US in fall 2009.
