“We are so thrilled to be expanding our Legends “Down Under Adventure” to New Zealand for seven incredible shows in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland. I have no doubt that our all-star cast with a live band and dancers will have Kiwi crowds enjoying the songs that will make their hearts sing, their hands clap, and their bodies stand, with many dancing throughout our show,” said Mark Kogan, General Manager for Special Engagements for Legends. “Our hope is that the show with the best tribute artists in the world will become a great success and yearly event in New Zealand, like it has been in Melbourne for six years.”
Elvis will be “back in the building” as hunk of “Burnin Love” Bill Cherry with his tribute to the King, along with Stephen Sorrentino’s portrayal of “Rocket Man” and Elton John’s incredible catalogue of iconic anthems, together with “Simply the Best” tribute Audiences will truly “Believe” in Annika Starander Weaver’s mesmerizing recreation of the one and only Cher. “Hello” it’s Janae Longo with her stunning tribute to Adele and her Las Vegas residency, along with Stacey Whitton Summers homage to Shania Twain’s legendary catalogue of international hits.
These amazing tribute artists will be singing your favorite hits of these superstars of past and present live, in their own natural voices, backed by a choreographed live rockin’ band and dazzling dancers. These “best of the best” tribute artists not only look and sound like the superstars they’re portraying, they “really do embody the energy and spirit” of them as well, according to Kogan. “It’s so much deeper than just their surface appearances to the superstars they pay tribute to…It’s almost a channeling of these great legends and superstars.”
Legends in Concert is known as the “World’s Greatest Live Tribute show,” and has been the pioneer of such shows for over 40 years, bringing its “Vegas Wow” throughout the world. “Legends is really the ultimate feel-good show and in life nothing is more important than feeling good,” Kogan said. “Music is a vibrational link to our hearts, to our joys.”
