ROCK ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famers The Hollies are coming to Invercargill.
The legendary British band will perform at ILT Stadium Southland on Monday, February 25, as part of a nationwide tour.
The Hollies will play in eight New Zealand cities.
The Hollies made their mark in the 1960s and have developed a massive following and were inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.
The band is best known for its No 1 hits such as Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress, Just One Look, He Ain’t Heavy He’s My Brother and Bus Stop
ILT Stadium Southland events and communications manager Courtney Skelt has played the lead role in working with promoters to get The Hollies to Invercargill.
“We are absolutely thrilled we will have another world-class act coming to Invercargill and our venue,” she said.
A crowd of about 2500 was hoped for, which would be in line with the numbers when country musician Glen Campbell and comedian Billy Connelly previously performed at ILT Stadium Southland.
Tickets to the Invercargill show go on sale on Monday and will be available through TicketDirect.
The Hollies have been regular visitors to New Zealand, with original singer and lead guitarist Tony Hicks promising a treat for those in attendance at the 2019 tour.
“People get what they come for. The trademark Hollies’ harmonies, our musical diversity and lots of original songs,” he said.
The night after the Invercargill show, The Hollies will perform in Dunedin at the Dunedin Town Hall.
