Aucklanders, go along and support Jan Hellriegel at Hillsborough's Pah Homestead on Friday 11 November 2022 as she performs her Sportsman of the Year show.
Jan will be supported by Mahoney Harris and Leah Navanua (aka Kaela).
Expect a wave of magnificent pop songs performed with classically trained vocal dexterity, spiced with anecdotes and stories from her fascinating career.
Jan burst onto the NZ music scene in the early 1990s with It’s My Sin, her debut rock album that peaked at number 5 in the national charts, and earned her well-deserved international attention.
Three studio albums later, Sportsman of the Year climbed to number 2 in the NZ albums charts and garnered her a new generation of fans. Jan also wrote a poignant and often hilarious book, called Sportsman Of The Year – A Suburban Philosophy to give background and context to the songs on her record. The book/music combo was serialised as podcasts and produced by RNZ National with Jan narrating her life stories and experiences in the music industry. Pitching the lows of failure and disappointment against the highs of accomplishment and pride in her creations, Jan’s story is all about following your dreams, and never giving up.
This event promises to be a very special night of songs and stories delivered in Jan’s inimitable style. Seats are very limited, so get yours now!
Doors open 6:30pm
Show starts 7pm
