The increasingly popular Summer Concert Tour has just revealed the legacy acts that they'll be taking to Queenstown, Taupo and Whitianga this holiday season.

Headlining the shows will be Roger Hodgson, the co-founder and voice of pop-rock superstars Supertramp.

Hodgson will have a full suitcase of summery hits to unpack, but the highlights will be the group's "hot sax" masterpiece The Logical Song, the shuffling Take the Long Way Home, the swaying Give a Little Bit and the stomp of Breakfast in America,

He's joined on the bill by James Reyne and Mark Seymour of Australian Crawl and Hunters & Collectors respectively. They've joined forces to form a sort of supergroup of Aussie rock and are promising to run through their collective hits.

Australian Crawl are behind the Aussie classic Reckless (Don't Be So) while Hunters & Collectors gave us the pub classics Throw Your Arms Around Me and Holy Grail.

Rounding off the line-up is the powerhouse vocalist Toni Childs whose 1988 debut album Union set the charts on fire thanks to her incredible voice, its sophisticated production and her inescapable hits Don't Walk Away and Stop Your Fussin'.

As anyone who's been to one of the Summer Concert Tour's will attest they're incredibly fun. The combo of legacy acts playing their biggest hits matched with the supremely chillaxed vibes make them a helluva great way to spend a summer's afternoon.

The Queenstown show takes place Saturday, January 19, while the Taupo and Whitianga shows are on a week later over Auckland Anniversary Weekend on Saturday 26 and Sunday January 27 respectively.

Pre-sales for all shows start today with general tickets available Monday, May 28, from greenstoneentertainment.co.nz.
