Brooke Fraser, OPSHOP & Midnight Youth complete the line up for the 2011 tour

New Zealand’s favourite songbird Brooke Fraser will headline the MORE FM Winery Tour 2011 summer series along with an all male entourage: chart-topping four-piece band OPSHOP and the popular Auckland rock band, Midnight Youth.

Now in its fifth year, the popularity of the MORE FM Winery Tour has seen the run more than double since its inception in 2007; now 19 shows nationwide. The tour returns to the Hawke’s Bay for two concerts at Black Barn Vineyards on Saturday 12th and Monday 14th February.

Brooke has already delivered a staggering number of hit singles and radio staples from her first two albums with songs like Better, Shadowfeet, Arithmetic and Deciphering Me. Her latest album Flags, released in October 2010, has just made an impressive debut in charts around the world and at # 1 in NZ, powered by her latest number one single, the irresistible Something In The Water.

OPSHOP’s third studio album Until the End of Time, was released in August 2010 and also debuted at # 1 in the NZ Charts, proving time together has done nothing but enhance the band’s ability at the song writing desk and in the recording studio. And with hits like One Day, Maybe, Waiting Now and Pins & Needles, OPSHOP is sure to be a summer crowd pleaser.

Midnight Youth, who will open all shows, achieved platinum sales for their debut album The Brave Don’t Run and picked up awards for Best Rock Album and Best Group at the 2009 New Zealand Music Awards. The Brave Don't Run has spawned two top 20 hits; All On Our Own and The Letter – both reaching # 1on the New Zealand radio charts, while current single Just For Once is their first new offering off their soon-to-be released sophomore album (2011).

Co-promoter Brent Eccles says the 2011 line up is a great blend of pop, rock & ballads; something for fans of all ages and musical persuasions this summer:

“Blackbarn has been a tradition for The MORE FM Winery Tour. We often play two shows with the first show selling out in hours. We play in a purpose built concert amphitheatre which has no equal for its size in New Zealand and we always look forward to these shows. A great crowd and very hospitable hosts!”

After such a long time spent away from NZ, Brooke is looking forward to spending some quality time back home.

"For me, the winery tour means celebrating summer in some of the most picturesque locations in NZ with old friends and new whilst enjoying a good drop - I wouldn't miss it!"

Old pal Jason Kerrison of OPSHOP agrees wholeheartedly:

"The winery tour is fantastic opportunity to let loose, play a little music, sip a little vino and sample platters of delish tucker from the rich tapestry that is the New Zealand summer. We're looking forward to catching up for a wonderful festival with some old mates."
