Stan Walker to croon to otters and elephants

On the eve of Waitangi Day next year Stan Walker will perform in the lush surrounds of Auckland Zoo at Western Springs.

The platinum and triple-platinum pop star will entertain adults, kids and curious meerkats at the 5th of February performance, which kicks off at 6:00 pm.

For those looking to soak up some sunshine this summer in the company of baboons, cheetahs and their loved ones, this is obviously the gig to be at.

With a starring role in New Zealand’s Born To Dance film, it’s rumoured that Stan might have a few smooth moves slicker than the sight of a Subantartic fur seal slipping into water. Failing that, his troupe of dancers will join him – along with a full band – to keep punters entertained.

Tickets are available now on Ticketmaster – make like a spider monkey and swing online to grab yours.
