Add a comment

The Exponents, Stan Walker and Breaks Co-Op have all been announced as part of next year's Classic Hits Winery Tour.

Now in its eighth year, the 2014 Classic Hits Winery Tour presents 17 shows across 16 outdoor venues, including Tauranga.

The Exponents' four founding members have come together and will be bringing all of their hits along with a very special stage show designed specifically for the Winery Tour.

Fresh from a sell-out nationwide tour, Stan Walker, has also been named in the line up. Stan will be bringing his full live stage show to the Wineries and not only will he be performing all his well-loved hits, he will be introducing songs from his stunning new album "Inventing Myself" including singles Take It Easy, Bulletproof, Inventing Myself and the brand new Like It's Over.

Completing the three-band line up is Breaks Co-Op, returning to the stage for the first time since their massive hit "The Otherside" ruled the airwaves and singles chart a few years ago. Breaks Co-Op have a brand new single Sounds Familiar out this month and will release their first new album in 8 years in January 2014 - right before the Winery Tour kicks off.

Jordan Luck and his fellow Exponents can't wait to kick off the tour on January 31.

"I'm off the piss and we're hitting the wineries...go figure! We can't wait. We've heard about this legendary tour for years and to be invited to take part with Stan and Breaks Co-Op is a real thrill. We are excited about putting on a really memorable show, with all the hits. We're rehearsing now! Winery Tour fans can expect something really special."

Stan Walker said hitting the road for a Kiwi summer on the Winery Tour was something he had been dreaming of for years.

"Sharing the stage with New Zealand music royalty in the most beautiful outdoor settings that Aotearoa has to offer? What an absolute blessing. I can't wait for everyone to come down and have a bit of a dance and a sing-along with me. It's gonna be mean".

Co-promoter Campbell Smith is looking forward to next year's Tour and promises concertgoers a unique and unforgettable experience.

"Who cares that it's not a winery? It's just a fantastic venue, so we bring the wine in! This will be our sixth year at the Wharepai Domain in the mighty Bay. Right in the heart of Tauranga, it's always a highlight each year. We are thrilled, as always, to bring the Classic Hits Winery Tour 2014 to one of our favourite destinations."
