Anna Hawkins returns to Hamilton on her new 'Bold, Brave & Beautiful' 2017 NZ Tour and will feature special guests the 'Waikato Rivertones Chorus' as well as local singer-songwriter Lisa Grace Hawkins. The show will be performed with Anna's live band in the Playhouse Theatre at the beautiful Gallagher Performing Arts Centre at Waikato University.
Back with a daring new show, New Zealand singer & recording artist Anna Hawkins is not one to be boxed in, bringing a classical edge to the world of folk and pop. Her unparalleled vocal tone and authentic passion have resonated with a growing audience around the world and have driven her in a brave new direction in 2017 as Anna performs and tours her latest offering 'Bold, Brave & Beautiful.'
Following the success of her previous album 'Divine,' which spent five weeks in the NZ charts, Anna's new show coincides with the release of her latest album 'Bold, Brave & Beautiful' promising fans a colourful new world of music exploring the themes of courage, freedom, vulnerability and fun.
On top of her brand new original material, the tour will see Anna perform songs from musical giants and personal heroes such as Simon & Garfunkel, Barbra Streisand, Michael Jackson, Shirley Bassey, Leonard Cohen and more.
Doors open from 7pm. Tickets available via the Gallagher Performing Arts Centre at Waikato University.
