Civic Events and Classic Hits announce the 2010 Classic Hits Acoustic Church Tour dates for September

Dave Dobbyn will headline the 2010 Classic Hits Acoustic Church Tour and he’ll have plenty of support with members of Christchurch up-and-comers Dukes all set to open the shows.

Dobbyn, who last year celebrated three decades of music, provides the soundtrack to Kiwi lives, with a string of hits including Beside You, Be Mine Tonight, Language, Outlook for Thursday, Loyal, Whaling, Kingdom Come, It Dawned On Me, Guilty, Devil You Know, Slice of Heaven, Magic What She Do, Oughta Be in Love , Welcome Home and countless other classics.

Dukes’ music has been described as infectious, unpretentious and steeped in tradition, and the fact the band cares so much about the craft of writing and the art of performing shines on stage. Their recent hit Vampires has been a fixture on the airplay charts for more than a year.

The Classic Hits Acoustic Church Tour is an acoustic show in three parts commencing with Dukes and then Dave’s performance in two sets. Doors open at 7.30pm show concludes at approximately 10.30pm.

“I'm very much looking forward to this Classic Hits Acoustic Church tour. I'm excited by the ambiences of churches. There are layers of resonance that are ideal for singing. I've always been transported by the sonics of such rooms. In performance it allows you to expand the dynamic range without over-playing. I love that challenge. There's also an intimacy about it. In these rooms I'll be playing acoustic guitars and a piano”.

“With me will be my long-time pal Ross Burge on percussion and drums. The deftly talented L.A. Mitchell and her fellow band mates, brothers Jo and Matt Barus from the marvellous Dukes will join us for some of the programme. Yes, we'll be playing a selection of favourites, along with some choices to hopefully suit the spring season and the lofty ambience of your local temple. It is an acoustic gig - but it will rock. See you there then.”
