Greenstone Entertainment has hit a milestone, it's 10 years old! To celebrate this anniversary in style they have announced they are bringing 5 massive acts to Whitianga as part of the Whitianga Summer Concert on Sunday 26th January 2020.
With music spanning the decades, from the late 60s through to early 2000’s, the 2020 line up at Whitianga Summer Concert will star BILLY IDOL, GEORGE THOROGOOD AND THE DESTROYERS, ANASTACIA, CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVISITED and SMASH MOUTH. All of the artists will be bringing their unmistakable hits as part of their Whitianga concert!
Our 10 year anniversary is a milestone in our history and what more fitting way to celebrate than to give both our loyal fans from years past - as well as those who may not have experienced one of our Summer Concert Tour shows before - a day to remember for years to come. All five acts are huge in their own right, but to have the opportunity to bring them all together to perform in some of our favourite summer holiday locations is both special and unique. We envisage a high demand for all three shows, and with our continued philosophy of offering great value for money, we’d encourage everyone to join up to our Greenstone Club, which is free of charge to join and will give access to our Greenstone Club Members Sale from 7am on Wed 29 May. If tickets are still available, general sale will start on Mon 3 June.
