Ronan Keating, the charismatic multi-platinum Irish music superstar, will thrill his legions of New Zealand fans when he embarks on a tour this Summer, playing two very special concerts in Wellington and Auckland.
Joining Ronan on tour will be fellow Irish artist, Sharon Corr, singer, songwriter and violinist, and a founding member of international superstars, The Corrs.
Stepping away from ‘The Australian X Factor’ judges’ desk, Ronan, accompanied by his seven-piece band and a string quartet, will deliver stellar performances of songs from throughout his career.
The set list will include highlights from ‘When Ronan Met Burt’, ‘Duet’, ‘Stay’ and ‘Songs for My Mother’, plus hits like ‘When You Say Nothing At All’, ‘Life Is A Rollercoaster’, ‘Lovin’ Each Day’, ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’, ‘The Long Goodbye’ and many more.
Ronan is currently enjoying well-deserved success with his latest album, ‘When Ronan Met Burt’ (Universal Music). The top-ten album, celebrates Ronan’s unique teaming with legendary composer Burt Bacharach.
The album houses ten reworked classics including ‘Walk On By’, ‘I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself’, ‘The Look Of Love’ and ‘Arthur’s Theme (The Best That You Can Do)’, which Ronan recently performed on the hit TV show ‘The X Factor’, on which Ronan has been appearing as a judge and mentor for a second season.
‘When Ronan Met Burt’ is Ronan’s eighth solo album to be released here.
Over the last ten years, Ronan has enjoyed consistent success in New Zealand, beginning with the 2000 self-titled album Ronan which peaked at #2 on the RIANZ charts and achieved triple platinum sales.More recently, releases such as the 2010 near double platinum album ‘Duet’ and 2009’s platinum ‘Songs For My Mother’, both albums peaked at #1 on the RIANZ charts.
While New Zealand album sales near 189,000 (12 x Platinum), worldwide sales have surpassed an incredible 22 million.
Sharon Corr will be the special guest at both shows.
Hugely successful as a member of The Corrs, Sharon is now finding success as a solo artist, with the release of her debut album ‘Dream Of You’ (Warner Music). Over the course of their 15-year career, The Corrs sold more than 40 millions albums worldwide, featuring massive singles such as ‘Runaway’, ‘Radio’, ‘Forgiven Not Forgotten’, ‘So Young’ and ‘Breathless’.
