EPE CANCEL 2017 NEW ZEALAND TOUR DATES
December 11, 2016  EIN  /  Brian Quinn  /  Elvis Express Radio
Our colleagues over at the Elvis Information Network report the rather head scratching decision by the Producers (Elvis Presley Enterprises) to outright cancel all the previously
announced dates in New Zealand leg of the 2017 tour of Australia of the highly successful and critically acclaimed Live Concert performance of Elvis with the Royal Philharmonic
Orchestra.

The 2017 Australia and New Zealand "The Wonder Of You" Tour was already given the downgraded treatment thanks to EPE NOT bringing the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on
the tour. Instead, only local Orchestra's will be playing the shows.

Here in the UK, the "If I Can Dream" Tour has been getting rave reviews from both fans and critics alike

So, what the hell is the reason behind these cancellations and for all the fans who are now disappointed for no apparent or any obvious reason?

Now then, don't worry to any of our Australian listeners, the tour for your dates are not affected and EPE do state that additional dates are soon to be announced?

Right then, now how about the excuse for the New Zealand concerts being cancelled? .... well, the reason for the cancellations make no sense at all. Believe it or not, the Producers
(EPE) have decided to cancel the shows due to the Concert being in such a high demand plus the huge popularity for "The Wonder Of You" overseas, the Producers are making
the Australian tour shorter than planned, BUT, they then state they plan to make extra Australian dates soon?

So why cancel the NZ gigs if they're gonna add more dates to the Aus gigs? Didn't they say they cancelled the NZ gigs due to huge demand overseas

The first album went Number 1 in Australia and EPE are confident that the concerts will be sellouts
