Summer Concert Tour to return to Whitianga in 2020

Following another successful Whitianga Summer Concert on Sunday 27 January, Greenstone Entertainment is pleased to confirm that they will be returning to the Coromandel and the Whitianga Waterways Arena as part of their 2020 Summer Concert Tour.

Since 2015, The Whitianga Waterways Arena has played host to the final of three shows in the annual Summer Concert Tour, with nearly 60,000 concert goers having attended across the past five years a relaxed, chilled out afternoon of music - popular with holidaymakers and locals alike.

“We have a great relationship with Greenstone Entertainment and are proud to provide them with a purpose-built concert site that can cater for up to 15,000 people,” says Peter Abrahamson, Whitianga Waterways manager. “Plenty of parking is available and there are generous seating areas available for concertgoers.”

Amanda Calvert, Greenstone Entertainment CEO, says the Coromandel fits perfectly with their philosophy of delivering world class international music acts to idyllic holiday locations across the country. “The Whitianga Waterways Arena is an ideal venue for our Summer Concert Tour,” she says. “We’re excited to be returning to the venue in 2020 to help celebrate the 10th anniversary of Greenstone Entertainment.”

The 2020 Summer Concert Tour will also return to the additional favourite summer holiday locations of Taupo and Queenstown.
