Stadium act under wraps

Dunedin Venues Management Ltd continues to be in talks about bringing another international act to Forsyth Barr Stadium, but any guesses as to who that might be are simply conjecture at this stage, a spokeswoman says.

After the announcement Paul Simon would play at the stadium in April, DVML chief executive Darren Burden confirmed he was in talks aimed at securing another major international act this year.

If confirmed, the concert would be of similar or larger scale to Simon's show, and would be staged later this year, Mr Burden said at the time.

A spokeswoman yesterday said no decisions had been reached yet.

She would not be drawn on the possible act and any guesses at this stage would only be ''hearsay and speculation'', she said.

She declined to comment further.

Mr Burden could not be contacted, but said in January DVML was working on ''a couple of things'', but one ''opportunity'' had advanced further than others.

Hmmm. Let me guess

Going on previous acts that have been attracted here my guess is it will be another over 50s person who hasn't had a hit in over 20 years.

Adding to the rumours

Aerosmith

Any act we will get will be tacked on to an Australian tour, so keep looking over the next few months and it will be very easy to find out.

Gaga talks under wraps?

I bet it's Stefani.

Quite the opposite

Quite the opposite EJ. They are working hard to ensure you have nothing to complain about when we gain more and more big events to the city. [abridged]

Does DVML not have enough work for all its managers, thus it resorts to free advertising of 'thin air' via your news columns.
