Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriters John Mellencamp and Sheryl Crow will play five ‘a day on the green’ events as part of their New Zealand concert tour.

In what is set to be one of the most anticipated concerts of the year, Mellencamp and Crow will perform in New Zealand on Saturday 6 December at the Alana Estate Winery, Martinborough in Wellington and on Sunday 7 December at the Mudhouse Winery, Waipara in Christchurch.

The upcoming tour will be Mellencamp’s first tour in 15 years. He will perform his hits as well as debuting material from his brand new album ‘Life, Death, Love & Freedom’ album (released on 12 July 2008).

John will bring with him his legendary touring band; Mike Wancic (his veteran guitarist of 30 years), Troye Kinnett (keyboards), Miriam Sturm (violin), Dane Clark (drums), Andrew York (guitar) and John Gunnell (bass).

Mellencamp was inducted earlier this year into the USA Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and this past December received the ASCAP Foundation’s Champion Award in recognition of his outstanding use of music in the service of humanity. He continues to headline the annual Farm Aid event in the USA that he co-founded with Willie Nelson.

Joining John on tour will be special guest Sheryl Crow. Returning to Australia for the first time since 1997, Sheryl will also perform her hits; ‘All I Wanna Do’, ‘If It Makes You Happy’ plus feature material from her album ‘Detours’ released earlier this year (Universal Music).

Newcomer Gin Wigmore also joins this stellar line up. The 21 year old New Zealand starlet has been songwriting and playing since the age of 14 and has recently released her debut EP “Extended Play” after becoming the first NZ artist ever to sign to Island Records Australia. Her current single “Under My Skin” is a Top 40 hit on both radio and music TV in NZ. In 2004, Gin was the Grand Prize Winner of the prestigious US-based International Song Writing Competition for her song “Hallelujah”, making her the youngest and only unsigned Grand Prize winner in the history of the competition.

Roundhouse Entertainment will be announcing further international artist concerts for the 2008/2009 summer season soon.

What better way to kick off the year than with John Mellencamp, Sheryl Crow and Gin Wigmore?
