The special matinee series was dedicated to her fans, who said goodbye to “the real Georgy Girl” – live on stage.
To cater for her fans of all ages, Judith has personally requested earlier starting times for all her performances in beautiful theatres throughout the country.
Many fans travel halfway around the world to hear Judith’s one-in-a-million golden voice and to experience the magic of her incredible 50-year musical journey.
Travelling to 12 cities in April/May, The Farewell New Zealand Tour gave New Zealand audiences the rare and final opportunity to hear ‘true musical royalty’ in concert.
In the mid-Sixties Judith Durham’s iconic voice, as the legendary and much-loved lead singer of The Seekers, propelled the group to the top of the world charts time and time again – often outselling The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
The Seekers’ million-selling hits include “Georgy Girl” (Oscar-nominated Best Original Song), “I’ll Never Find Another You” (more than 15 million hits on YouTube to date) and heartfelt epic “The Carnival Is Over” (No.30 in ‘UK Top 100 Best Selling Singles Of All Time’).
Judith’s Farewell New Zealand Tour was a glorious celebration of her incredible five decades in the music industry.
