2022 Whitianga Summer Concert Tour cancelled – new dates set for 2023

Greenstone Entertainment have announced that with much regret and after 12 consecutive years, they are unable to run the annual Summer Concert Tour in 2022 and have now set new dates for 2023.

Greenstone Entertainment has been working hard behind the scenes and have said that they had confirmed a fabulous international line-up for 2022 some time ago. However, Covid restrictions led them to delay an announcement about the tour, as they didn’t feel it was appropriate to go on sale without knowing where the tour would be with the restrictions around the border, MIQ, lockdown levels and subsequently the traffic light system. 

The Summer Concert Tour had previously been postponed from the usual January dates to March dates for 2022. During 2021 our extensive work to develop a bespoke MIQ solution was unfortunately not successful. We had anticipated that by March, and given what was happening around the rest of the world, that we could expect some form of home quarantine to be available, which would have been acceptable to the artists.

While Greenstone Entertainment organisers have announced today that they are unable to run the 2022 Tour, dates for a 2023 tour have been confirmed.  

There has been huge anticipation and enthusiasm from fans to find out more about our 2022 tour, and we’re saddened to have to make today’s announcement. With the current border restrictions, and the uncertainty surrounding the new Omicron variant, our international artists are not willing to spend 10 days in a managed quarantine facility. 

We recognise the importance of the Summer Concert Tour to the regions in which it visits, with over 50,000 people attending the 3 shows annually. Not only from the millions of dollars of economic benefit it generates each year, but also the hundreds of local staff and suppliers that we’re able to engage and support, and the many local groups and charities who rely on this event for fundraising. With the current border restrictions in place for international tourists, this year would have been more important than ever for driving domestic tourism to the regions. We understand that our loyal customers will be disappointed and we value their support. We always strive to deliver outstanding quality events, and great live music but unfortunately this year that was simply not going to be possible.

Amanda Calvert – Greenstone Entertainment CEO
 
Greenstone Entertainment highlights that it would like to thank the public and loyal customers for their support and patience during these trying times, and they look forward to rocking again with everyone in 2023.
