The sassy and supremely talented Gin Wigmore will headline the 2012 Classic Hits Winery Tour, along with reformed legends The Mutton Birds & talented newcomers, Avalanche City, who round out the three band bill.

Now in its sixth year, and with a brand new presenting sponsor, the Classic Hits Winery Tour (formerly the More FM Winery Tour) is a firmly established and much loved national touring event showcasing the best of Kiwi music. In 2012 it will include 16 shows in 14 venues nationwide including Auckland, Matakana Tutukaka, Tauranga, Gisborne, Havelock North, Martinborough, New Plymouth, Hamilton, Upper Motuere (Nelson) Waipara (Christchurch) Dunedin and Cromwell.

Gin, recently back from the USA where she recorded her sophomore album, Gravel & Wine (released 7 November), has enjoyed massive success since the release of her EP Extended Play, followed by the multi-platinum debut album Holy Smoke, scooping four Tui Awards in last year’s NZ Music Awards and massive airplay success with I Do, Oh My, Under My Skin and the just released Black Sheep.

The Mutton Birds join the Winery Tour celebrating not one, but two milestones; 2012 marks 20 years since the release of the band’s self titled debut album and 10 years since their last show. With timeless Kiwi anthems that transcend generations like Anchor Me, Dominion Road and Nature, Don McGlashan, Ross Burge, David Long and Alan Gregg are reuniting just for the Winery Tour.

Avalanche City completes the 100% Kiwi bill as the new kids on the block. Winners of the coveted APRA Silver Scroll Award this year for hit single Love Love Love and fresh from showcase tours of Japan, Australia, USA and London, the band is rocking up the charts and winning hearts all over the globe.

The Winery Tour kicks off with its 78th show at Ascension Wine Estate in Matakana on Friday 3rd February and concludes at Villa Maria Estate in Auckland on Saturday 3rd March.

Tickets (and bus/ticket packages) go on sale on Monday 07 November with an Early Bird offer of $59 plus booking fee (ticket only) for the month of November, increasing to $69 plus booking fee from 01 December.
