Sol3 Mio | Back to Basics







Sol3 Mio at Black Barn





Sol3 Mio fans rejoice! New Zealand’s favourite musical trio are home for the holidays and are delighted to announce a very special concert tour across the North Island this March. Stopping in at Black Barn Amphitheatre, their sole outdoor show of the tour, on Saturday 9 March.

This will be Sol3 Mio in their most intimate and purest form - three voices and a piano - with a brand new repertoire of songs and anecdotes from their adventures around the globe over the past 12 months.

In this tour, Sol3 Mio take a step back from their recent outdoor shows to reconnect with smaller audiences at concert halls and theatres, sharing stories and music from their experiences across the globe, up close and personal.

“We’ve missed being able to see everyone’s faces and communicate directly with our audiences during performances,” Sol3 Mio say. “So we’re looking forward to doing that in these shows, as well as meeting everyone for meet and greets and signings after the shows.”

While brothers Pene and Amitai Pati, and Moses Mackay have been focusing on their solo opera and pop careers for the past year, their Christmas Album A VERY M3RRY CHRISTMAS hit #2 in the New Zealand Album charts, after hitting #1 on release a year earlier. With three straight #1 albums, a slew of Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards and record-breaking tours, Sol3 Mio are a musical force to be reckoned with. This tour is one not to be missed, before the three once again head away to progress their individual careers.

Tickets for this unique and intimate tour will undoubtedly sell fast, so we urge fans to make sure they’re ready when tickets go on sale at 9am on Tuesday 29 January.

Preferred Terrace Seating | $95.00 each 

These are numbered seated tickets for the lower front flat gallery, also Terraces 1 and 2 of the amphitheatre. (Terrace 1 on sale prior to Terrace 2) You will find the number in the top section of your ticket. They are a reserved area in the heart of the amphitheatre where a combination of views and site lines are at their best. Purchasing a preferred seat means you don't have to arrive too early to get one of the best seats in the house.

A word on preferred terrace seating: Each of the two seated terraces will only have two rows of seats. Seats will be spaced so that the back row still has excellent sight-lines. The seats will be allocated on a 'first in, best seat' scenario. (Tickets Limited)
