No 1 hit and gold status for local boy band lads

By Kristin Macfarlane


Rotorua's Jordi Webber and Whakatane's Zac Taylor are only 18 but they can already boast many successes - including having a number 1 single.

With their band, New Zealand's first real boy band Titanium, their first single Come on Home debuted at number one on both the official New Zealand singles chart and the iTunes chart. This week, it has moved to number 3 but has received Gold status.

The band - made up of members TK, Haydn, Zac, Jordi, Shaq and Andrew - is seeing a lot of success and Rotorua residents only have days left to get tickets for their Rotorua concert as part of their nationwide tour.

Titanium is starting their Come On Home New Zealand tour in Whangarei today before performing in Hamilton tomorrow, Tauranga on Sunday and Rotorua on Monday. The band is also visiting Napier, Palmerston North, Masterton, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch, Timaru, Oamaru, Invercargill, Dunedin and Auckland.

Owing their formation to a nationwide search via the recent competition, The Edge Boy Band with KFC Krushers, the band members are excited to perform and head on tour, travelling on a double-decker bus.

They have been signed to Illegal Musik.

Chief executive of Illegal Musik Mark Arona said the tour would feature special guests and promised audience members a vibrant, entertaining two-hour show.

"We're working Titanium hard to prepare them for a sensational live show with special guests, J.Williams, K.One, Brooke Duff and DJCXL," Mr Arona said.

Tickets for Monday's show are limited and are available from Ticketmaster for $25. Fans are advised to get in quick.
