There will be something old, something new and something far from blue when the Classic Hits Winery Tour comes to Tutukaka next February.

The event features The Exponents, Stan Walker and Breaks Co-op taking to the stage on the country's biggest national tour.

The Winery Tour, now in its eighth year, has 17 shows in 16 outdoor venues from Tutukaka down, for the first time, to Invercargill with the tour kicking off in Hamilton on January 31, followed by a show at Matakana's Ascension Winery on February 1 and the Tutukaka show at the Marina Reserve on February 2.

The Tutukaka show has traditionally been on the Sunday of Waitangi Weekend, but this year will be a week earlier. Co-promoter Campbell Smith is looking forward to next year's Tour and promises concertgoers a unique and unforgettable experience.

"The Winery Tour will visit Northland and the beautiful Marina Reserve for the fifth time in 2014," Smith said.

He said The Exponents' four founding members will be bringing all of their hits along with a special stage show designed specifically for the Winery Tour.

Fresh from a sell-out nationwide tour, which included a Whangarei gig, is Walker who will be bringing his full live stage show to the tour and will be performing all his well-loved hits and songs from his 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. Featuring the velvet voice of Andy Lovegrove, Breaks Co-Op have a new single Sounds Familiar out this month and will release their first new album in eight years in January.

Tickets from website www.winerytour.co.nz and Ticketmaster 0800 111 999 or www.ticketmaster.co.nz. One child under the age of 12 will be given free admittance when accompanied by one adult ticket holder.
