Stewart & Tricia Macpherson of The Stetson Group announce that Bill Haley Jr. & the Comets will tour New Zealand in March -- reviving the look and sound of the founding father of rock’n’ roll, Bill HaleY.

Bill Haley Jr. & the Comets will perform in Invercargill, Dunedin, Timaru, Christchurch, Nelson, Wellington, Hastings, Palmerston North, New Plymouth, Auckland, Tauranga, Rotorua and Hamilton. Dates and booking details below. Tickets go on sale on Monday, 4 November 2013 – the ideal Christmas gift!

Audiences should be prepared to jump, jive, dance, clap, stomp your feet and sing along to classic 50s favorites such as Rock Around The Clock, See Ya Later Alligator, Shake, Rattle & Roll, Rock This Joint, Chantilly Lace, Johnny B Good and Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On when Bill Haley Jr. & the Comets rock the joint!

Emphasizing authenticity in sound and presentation in a 2-hour show, Bill Haley Jr. shares inside stories behind the songs he sings backed up by his talented five-piece band of Comets: multi-instrumentalist Bobby Michaels on saxophone, percussion and keyboard; nimble-fingered Mike Denaro on electric guitar; Christopher Davis Shannon slapping the upright bass; and not forgetting Rich Flamini’s energetic Gene Krupa-style drumming.

Bill Jr says don’t expect so much a tribute band, but rather a Rock and Roll history show. Along with the behind-the-scenes stories, Bill Jnr emphasises that he and his band mates perform the hits just as they sounded in the 1950s.

“We play as authentically as possible,” Bill says.
