Gerry and the Pacemakers with special guest Shane Cortese: 50th Anniversary Tour.
Iconic group Gerry and the Pacemakers announce a special 50th anniversary tour of New Zealand in March and April.
With hits including Ferry Across The Mersey, You'll Never Walk Alone, Don't let The Sun Catch You Crying, It's Gonna Be All Right and I'm Like It, Gerry and the Pacemakers are one of the finest touring acts of today.
This fabulous tour kicks off in Auckland on 26 March and travels to Hamilton, New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Dunedin, Christchurch, Ashburton and Wellington on 5 April. See full booking details below.
It’s been 10 years since Gerry and the Pacemakers last toured New Zealand – much to the delight of their adoring fans and this time will be even more special. Gerry is celebrating 50 years since he formed the group that rivalled The Beatles in their early career and they’re inviting our own Mr Rock n’ Roll, Shane Cortese to join the band.
The television personality is an outstanding rocker, having toured several times with his own show Rock n Roll Heaven, mesmerising audiences with a voice and performance honed on London’s West End playing Elvis in Elvis the Musical, Ricky Nelson in Rock ‘n’ Roll Heaven, Ritchie Valens in Buddy, Pharoah in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Rocky in The New Rocky Horror Show.
Ticketek presales begin Thursday 11 December. Public onsale Monday 15 December.
