Smash Hits 70s - Get Ready to Sing Along

In Smash Hits 70's, some of the most iconic songs of all time will be performed live across New Zealand this April and May by the singers who made them famous so many years ago: The New Seekers’ Eve Graham and Paper Lace’s Philip Wright.

In a career that produced a string of memorable hits, such as Look What They’ve Done To My Song, Ma, Nickel Song, Circles, Never Ending Song Of Love and Beg, Steal or Borrow, Eve is probably best remembered for her performance of I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing, the famous soundtrack to Coca-Cola’s ‘Hilltop’ commercial.

Joining Eve on the New Zealand tour will be Philip Wright and Paper Lace, whose memorable compositions such as Billy Don’t Be A Hero, The Night Chicago Died, Hitchin’ A Ride and The Black Eyed Boys led them to 70’s superstardom and sold millions of copies around the world. The classic  reached number one in the American Charts, achieving platinum sales and winning the title of largest selling single worldwide in 1974.

This is the chance for New Zealand fans to savour that unmistakable 70’s sound of two genuine stars of the era, singing the hits you remember, and sounding like you remember, at a venue near you. It’s a show not to be missed – the Greatest Hits of The New Seekers and Paper Lace live.
