    Idol star signing concert 'coup'
    [b]by Greg Taipari - Eastern Bay News | 21st January


    He may have won Australian Idol but Stan Walker is ours.

    And Whakatane fans have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the singer in action at a free concert in Rotorua.
    Walker will be performing at this month's Lakeside concert after confirmation from his mother and manager, April Walker.
    Getting the Kiwi singer signed up for the annual outdoor concert is a major coup for organisers and, says Mrs Walker, the youngster is excited about being involved.
    Lakeside's "Hollywood Comes To Vegas" organiser, Monty Morrison, said he was rapt when Walker's manager confirmed the star would be attending the event.

    "Obviously, we are elated and thrilled that we have been able to secure an artist who is ranked number one in Australasia.
    "We have never been able to achieve this before."

    Mr Morrison said it was through the goodwill of sponsors and the credibility of the event that the organisers had been able to secure Walker's commitment.

    "I'm thrilled for all those former acts who have performed in the past. They have added mana to the show and that is why we have been able to get {Walker}."

    Walker lived in Tauranga before his family moved to Hamilton and then Australia.
    Walker, who has spoken publicly of his abusive childhood and battle with alcohol, was a perfect fit for the event, Mr Morrison said.

    "He is a perfect role model. He is a young achiever who has had a hard life but is now successful."

    The idea to invite Walker came from a meeting when staff member Kim Billington, who had watched Australian Idol, suggested it would be "wonderful" to get Walker to perform in Rotorua.
    Mr Morrison said organisers contacted Mrs Walker in December and she confirmed last week that her son would be at Lakeside.
    Mrs Walker said Walker was excited to be asked to perform at Lakeside and was busy rehearsing.

    "He's pretty excited and looking forward to the concert."

    He was also asked to perform in Manukau the weekend after Lakeside but wanted to be closer to his home town so chose Rotorua, she said. He would perform his hit single Little Black Box, Prince's Purple Rain and a couple of his own songs.

    Lakeside 2010 committee chairman Ian Edward said having Walker perform was a big coup.

    "It gives hugh credibility to the event - even the professionals realise it's a great place to launch a career."

    General admission to the January 30 concert is free but there are also seats available in front of the stage and demand for those is expected to be greater with Walker now confirmed.
    Last year, more than 20,000 people attended, the biggest crowd since the event's inception in 1997.

    Tickets for Lakeside cost $25 and can be purchased at Ticketmaster at the Rotorua Convention Centre or online at www.ticketmaster.co.nz.

    I wish they'd stop repeating the fact that Stan's NZer and that he "belongs" to NZ.

    everybody knows already, geez! -_-;;
