“The X Factor” New Zealand judge Stan Walker’s life is now complete after he was confirmed to open for his idol Beyonce on the American superstar’s tour in the country. Live Nation announced that the 22-year-old Australian-New Zealand singer will support Beyonce at her four shows in October.
“Never in my life did i think that my dream 2 meet beyonce or open for her would come true. But i can finally announce with more excitement than you even know that i will be opening for the Queen in New Zealand on her tour,” Stan announced on his Facebook page.
“Life complete... Hahahaha praise Jesus.”
Stan previously cited Beyonce as his inspiration, telling MTV in 2010 that the 32-year-old singer/actress is “musically why I do what I do. She’s an inspiration, she’s incredible. I just love her.”
Beyonce will be at the Auckland Vector Arena for four nights for the New Zealand leg of her “The Mrs Carter Show” world tour from October 16 to 19. She will then fly to Australia for her sold-out shows in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, and Perth from October 16 to November 9.
Stan is also on tour himself. After completing the first season of “The X Factor” NZ as judge in July, he has started his 23-date tour across the country in September, and which will conclude in October.
He will be at the Nelson College School Hall on September 27, Friday in Nelson before he travels to Dannevirke at the Town Hall on September 30. He will also be at the Hawke’s Bay Opera House in Hastings on October 1, at the Great Lakes Centre in Taupo on October 2, at the Town Hall in Pukekohe on October 3, and at the Forum North in Whangarei on October 4.
The former “Australian Idol” champ is currently working on his new album.
