With Special Guests GEORGE THOROGOOD & The Destroyers
"The Hard Knocks Tour" - New Zealand 2011

It's a phrase which is ridiculously over-used, but not in this case.

When it comes to true music legends, JOE COCKER, OBE please stand up.

And whilst also over-used, not in this case - get ready for double trouble when Joe Cocker and band return to New Zealand in January, accompanied by his special guests, the master of the slide guitar, and truly BAD-TO-THE-BONE, GEORGE THOROGOOD and his Destroyers.

This dream team pairing of gritty R&B, blues and soul legends will be an early 2011 musical highlight for Kiwi audiences, returning here for indoor concerts and A Day on the Green winery events in January.

Not only is Joe Cocker one of the most successful and popular singers of the last four decades, he is also one of music's most loved and most respected. This Grammy, Golden Globe and Academy Award winning artist has 21 studio and four live albums under his belt, and his unmistakable bluesy soul voice a musical trademark in its own right.

The Sheffield-born singer has always been a huge favourite with New Zealand audiences.

Cocker will be performing songs from his new album ‘Hard Knocks' in addition to the many gems in his illustrious back catalogue like ‘You Can Leave Your Hat On', ‘Unchain My Heart', ‘Up Where We Belong', ‘The Letter' and ‘You Are So Beautiful'. After 40 years, Cocker remains one of rock's pre-eminent survivors and a must-see live performer.

Special guest support artist is George Thorogood and his band The Destroyers. The blues/rock specialist has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide, amassing an enviable reputation and loyal following for his scorching live performances. He has visited New Zealand a number of times.
