Mangawhai Tavern has X Factor
Music Works presents The Up Close & Personal Tour at the Mangawhai Tavern – three of the best top 10 acts from X Factor NZ as voted by the public performing live.
Sarah Spicer, Stevie Tonks and Joe Irvine generated thousands of new fans in the 2015 season of X Factor NZ.
On this tour there are no backing tracks, it’s all real singers and real musicians performing live and together. Don’t miss the opportunity to see these real artists performing live for the very first time.
Sarah has over 1.1 million internet views of her X Factor performances, and recently performed support to US mega artist Michael Bolton who has sold over 75 Million records.
Michael said that Sarah was one of the best warm up artists he had seen in many years. She has also made history by being the very last person on the planet to record with blues legend John Lee Hooker. This legendary recording is available on Sarah’s debut album Colours.
Joe Irvine made global headlines when Natalie Kills and Willy Moon were sacked as X Factor NZ judges for their slanderous remarks. Joe received praise from the likes of Lorde and Ed Sheeran, and has over 39,000 fans.
This is an opportunity to see Joe performing his new original songs for the first time since the show.
Christchurch’s Stevie Tonks was the fourth place finisher of X Factor NZ 2015. His powerful vocal ability, stage presence and memorable image made him a favourite of the competition.
Stevie has already achieved three top ten singles and is currently in the recording studio working on his own original music.
This tour will enable fans to hear some of Stevie’s new songs for the first time ever and witness his great stage performances of these brilliant songs.
