Fabulous 50's

Fabulous 50's

Relive the romance and the fun when vocals met harmonies as we celebrate the greatest hits of the 50’s.

Fabulous 50's

Phenomenal star Suzanne Lynch leads a troupe of singers and band in our roll back of the clock to an era when some of the greatest music was ever written: the 1950’s. We relive the romance and the fun, when vocals met harmonies, as we celebrate the greatest hits of the 50’s.

We pay tribute to greats like Elvis Presley, with Pat Urlich doing a stunning Elvis impersonation complete with gravelly voice and gyrating hips. Suzy will be singing up a storm with Doris Day and Connie Francis numbers, while Karl Perigo crooning while customers are swooning with melodies from the likes of the Everly Brothers and more recently Michael Buble. The band will rock and roll the audience and the singing trio will join together with songs of tight harmonies and toe tapping rhythms.

Bring your dancing shoes!

Concerts start at 11am
Tickets include lunch with the performers

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the I Love Paris concert. It was one of the best ever. The beautiful back drop and the equally beautiful songs and music, made it feel as if I was right there in Paris.

~ Kathleen, Nelson

I knew all the words of all the songs - a fabulous program and each performer was perfect in their individual songs and the ensembles were beautiful with great endings! A standing ovation at the end with cheering and clapping was testament to everyone’s enjoyment. It is certainly up there with the best and everyone wore a huge smile as they left! THANK YOU ALL for brightening our lives!!

~ Dot, Hastings

I just wanted to pass on my congratulations on today’s show. I’m so pleased I attended, as was my neighbour, who was entranced. This was everything such occasions should be: heartfelt, poignant, funny, inspiring, uproarious, festive ... immensely satisfying. Please pass on my plaudits to everyone.

~ Lindsay, Kapiti

We’d like to say a very big congratulations for the last Kiwi Show. It was just fantastic, very professional, humorous, and an absolute delight to watch and listen to and be part of the audience. It is obvious at every performance the stars always give of their best and are very passionate about what they do. We always rave about each concert for days afterwards and endeavor to put the word out there.

~ Jill and Kevin, Masterton

We laughed, sang, cried and clapped our hands sore, it truly was that good a performance. Our congratulations and thanks to all who work so hard to bring these concerts together and the performers who give their all to entertain us so well.

~ Judi and Graham

We thoroughly enjoyed the superb concert today in Invercargill. So honest and moving. Very professional. Our first time. We look forward to becoming regulars.

~ Wendy Joy, Invercargill
