The Winner of the Church Tour 2016 tickets

…is Hugh Joughin.

Congratulations Hugh, and thanks to everyone who entered our competition for a double pass to the first of two Christchurch shows next week.

We asked you to name your favourite song by one of the artists performing in The Church Tour 2016 and there were some clear favourites.

Shona vs Sharon

Shona Laing’s Glad I’m not a Kennedy got four times the votes of anything else, and though Kiwi classic Maxine, by Sharon O’Neill made an attempt it was nowhere near the popularity of Laing’s 1986 hit from the album, South.
