Soul singer Michael Bolton is coming to town to make sweet, sweet music with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra for one night only.

The singer who seduced the charts in the late 80s and early 90s with his pop rock balladeering, interpretations of classic soul tracks and his flowing golden locks will perform a set of his greatest hits with the APO at the Civic theatre.

Bolton first appeared in the New Zealand charts with his take on Otis Redding's (Sittin' On) the Dock of the Bay in 1987. After that he became a chart regular with songs like How Can We Be Lovers, Said I Loved You... But I Lied and How Am I Supposed to Live Without You as well as his cover of Percy Sledge's When A Man Loves A Woman.

As well as his own catalogue he has also written hits for artists like Barbra Streisand, Cher, Kenny G and KISS. He recently appeared in the Netflix comedy special Michael Bolton's Big Sexy Valentine's Day Special.
