Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain NZ Tour

Catch them live Auckland CBDTakapunaHamiltonNew PlymouthPalmerston NorthWellington, and Christchurch.

With their trademark style of ‘no-nonsense-rock-and-roll-on-the-wrong-instruments’, the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain takes audiences on an entertaining and virtuosic white-knuckle ride between twisted covers, this time including Lady Gaga, Adele, Junior Walker, Black Sabbath and Michael Jackson, along with triumphant war-horses and poignant lollipops of classical music, and some surprising original and quirky pieces of music which defy classification.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll never think about music and entertainment in the same way after you've been subject to the foot-stomping, all-singing, all-plucking Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain as they bring you ‘One Plucking Thing After Another’.
