Chart-topping Kiwi Dane Rumble is in Queenstown this weekend – not that you’d know it.
Rumble will fly in for three hours on Sunday, accompanied by a plane-load of fans for a private concert in the resort.
An Air New Zealand 737 has been commandeered to fly the pop and rock singer from Auckland, with about
120 mostly female followers.
Rumble touches down in Queenstown at 1pm and he will belt out tunes from his album The Experiment at Prime Restaurant on Rees Street before being whisked back to Auckland by 6pm with his posse of admirers.
Some punters paid as much as $807 for two seats on the flight south with the star.
Rumble is providing in-flight entertainment over the PA system while passengers are treated to cocktails. Hair and make-up artists will also work their magic on the guests before the exclusive gig, Grabaseat brand and marketing manager Sunil Unka says.
Formerly in Fast Crew, Rumble went solo last year and has ruled the airways since with singles such as Always Be Here and Don’t Know What To Do.
His album, released late March, made its debut at No 1 on the NZ Radio Charts.
The Dane On A Plane stopover catches the penultimate day of the 10th NZ Music Month.
