Ben Hurley’s Straight-out-of-lockdown Tour
Bringing NZ’s live entertainment venues back!
Ben Hurley has teamed up with the Save Our Venues campaign and announced a tour covering many of the smaller centres around the country. With many venues doing it tough throughout the lockdown, Ben figured that comedy is the perfect way for venues to operate in a level two scenario.
With all the guidelines including patrons seated, served and socially distanced, it’s the ideal way for us to gather in a safe and responsible way. Each show is limited to just 100 folk, so these tickets are going to be in hot demand. Perfect for an intimate show before we’re ready for the ol’ mosh pit.
Ben’s “The Endless Summer Tour” was cut short by the Covid-19 crisis earlier this year, and it seemed like a perfect way to help the recovery by delivering laughs around the country. The venue staff and owners have all be been working hard to make sure they have safe environments for their customers, and while things are a little different, they will still be delivering great service.
Of course we all know Ben from his TV appearances, 7Days, The Project, The Comedy Gala and he’s won all of the awards, The Fred, The Billy T, NZCG Best Male and NZCG Best MC so he definitely has the chops, and the beard, to make a great show.
He’ll be having different local comics to warm things up at each centre, another way to help get the local comedy scene back on its feet.
From Dunedin to Leigh, and heaps of places in between, this is something for the whole country to get involved with. Each venue will have it’s own requirements, so please check their websites so we are all keeping safe.
