Kiwi icons join Bryan Adams lineup

Dave Dobbyn and Jordan Luck Band will open for Bryan Adams at all four venues.

Two of New Zealand’s most-loved and recognisable fixtures are joining the line-up at what is quickly becoming one of Tauranga’s biggest sell-out shows.

Dave Dobbyn and Jordan Luck Band, formerly of the Exponents, will both play sets this summer, opening for Bryan Adams at all four venues booked for his tour.

The pair complete a talent-packed line-up that’s guaranteed to be one of the must-see shows of early 2018.

Dave started his career in Th’ Dudes and was one of the main creative forces in DD Smash, before going solo and releasing famous hits including Slice of Heaven, Loyal and Welcome Home.

Jordan Luck was the lead singer and songwriter for the Exponents for decades, with hits including Why Does Love Do This To Me, Who Loves Who The Most and Victoria, all of which will be played on this tour.

The event is a culmination of efforts by promoters Pato Alvarez and Toby Burrows.

“Neptune Entertainment is a partnership between myself and the promoters of Bay Dreams, Pato Alvarez and Mitch Lowe,” says Toby. “Pato also promotes One Love.

“We have been looking to work together for some time and this is a great opportunity to combine our experience and passion for promoting large outdoor shows.

Nearly 60 per cent of tickets have already sold, says Pato.

“Feedback has been incredible so far, and I don’t think Tauranga has ever had an artist as big as Bryan Adams,” he says.

“We are expecting a full house that’s for sure, and tickets are selling out fast.”

Bryan Adams plays ASB Baypark Stadium, Mount Maunganui, on January 5.
