HELLO SAILOR 40TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR CANCELLED

FUNDRAISER ANNOUNCED

Brent Eccles Entertainment Ltd, promoters of The Hello Sailor 40th Anniversary Tour, regret to advise that the tour has been cancelled due to illness.

Hello Sailor’s charismatic lead singer Graham Brazier suffered a heart attack on Wednesday 29 July while on holiday in the Bay of Islands.  He was flown to Auckland hospital where he underwent emergency procedures. Although Graham is in a stable condition and expected to recover, the recuperation period means that the tour cannot go ahead as planned. 

There will now be a benefit concert held for Graham.

Promoter Brent Eccles - “We are all really shocked by this and because Graham will not be able to perform while he recuperates we have all decided to try and raise some money to get he and his family through a very, very difficult time”
