Vineyard concerts announced
Summer is officially in the air, with the first in a series of vineyard concerts announced.
OpShop will headline next year's More FM Summer Vineyard Tour, kicking off in Tauranga before travelling around the country next February.
New Zealand's Got Talent judge Jason Kerrison's band will be joined by award-winning Australian artist Missy Higgins.
Kiwi legend Che Fu and local talent Aaradhna will perform a soul set together, as well as their solo hits.
The vineyard tour will also head to the Hawkes Bay, Martinborough, Nelson, and Christchurch, before winding up at Turanga Creek Vineyard in Auckland.
With three multi-platinum selling albums, OpShop have lodged themselves into the nation's musical lexicon with singles such as One Day, No Ordinary Thing and Maybe.
The first single from their new album is due to be revealed shortly.
