Dave Dobbyn to Headline 2010 Acoustic Church Tour

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.

Now in its second year, the tour has expanded to 12 shows in 11 cities - New Plymouth and Nelson having been added to the bill. Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Napier, Palmerston North, Wellington, Christchurch (with two shows in different venues), Dunedin and Invercargill are the other stops on this sojourn through majestic churches, chapels and cathedrals.

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.

His enduring popularity sees perennial polls of New Zealand’s Top 100 songs returning Loyal to number one year on year, and he holds the most Silver Scroll Awards for songwriting. In 2001, Dobbyn was given a lifetime achievement award by the New Zealand recording industry.
