Michael Bolton croons his way back to NZ shores next month

Multi-award winning songwriter and balladeer Michael Bolton will serenade Kiwi fans once again, bringing his soulful performance to Auckland's The Civic next month.

Before his intimate Kiwi date, Michael will first be playing his Australian tour where he'll perform in the Gold Coast and Melbourne. After his one-off NZ concert, Michael will be wrapping up his Aussie shows in Sydney and Perth.

Known for his soulful voice and touching lyrics, Michael will take his fans on a musical journey as he performs with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and brings his musical catalogue to life. Known for their innovative and daring approach, the APO will deliver the soulful classics with rich grandeur as Michael brings his own energy and passion to make for a truly extraordinary evening.

Michael Bolton is one of music's most successful and loved performers. His songs are some of the best selling songs of all time—'How Can We Be Lovers', 'When A Man Loves A Woman', 'Said I Love You But I Lied' and many more. He has covered some great music classics—his version of Otis Redding's 'Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay' topped charts around the world and is still heard on radio today.

Michael has written no. 1 hit singles impacting the careers of artists such as Laura Branigan ('How Am I Supposed to Live Without You'), Kiss ('Forever'), Barbra Streisand ('We’re Not Making Love Anymore'), Cher ('I Found Someone') and Kenny G ('By the Time this Night is Over'). He has written with some of the greatest and most diverse talent of our time, including Bob Dylan, Paul Stanley, Lady Gaga, Diane Warren, and David Foster. Continuing to tour the world each year, Michael has performed with legacies such as Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, Renee Fleming and BB King.

To date, Michael has seen nine studio albums rank in the Top 10, with nine no. 1 singles. His most recent album 'Songs of Cinema', a selection of iconic film soundtrack songs, was released alongside an original Netflix production 'Michael Bolton's Big Sexy Valentine's Day Special', which ranked among the network's best comedies upon debut. Michael currently stars in 'Bolt of Talent', a brand-new music travel competition series produced with Fox Networks Group/StarWorld in Asia.

Michael's timeless charm and great comedic timing became a viral sensation in The Lonely Island's Emmy nominated video 'Captain Jack Sparrow' that launched on Saturday Night Live and has racked up over 180 million views on YouTube. He then partnered with 'Funny Or Die' to release a spoof on the cult-classic 'Office Space'. Bolton continued his comedic appearances in several episodes of CBS's hit series 'Two and a Half Men', the hit Fox network show Glee, HBO's hit series 'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver', ABC's hit comedy 'Fresh off the Boat'.

Making her way across the Tasman, one of Australia's most versatile songstress Silvie Paladino will be joining Michael Bolton’s one-off show. She will be lending her vocal talent for some very special duets with songs from Michael’s impressive classics.

Fall in love once again with Michael Bolton's soulful timbre in his sensational performance live this June.
