About Wilson Dixon: The New Zealand Tour

Wilson Dixon: The New Zealand Tour

Wilson Dixon - A New Zealand Tour is a documentary comedy featuring guitar-plucking Cowboy philosopher Wilson Dixon as he visits New Zealand to record his very own television special.

A country music comedy phenomenon hailing from Cripple Creek Colorado, Wilson obligingly grants a camera crew access all areas, including his taxi and the modest motel room he reluctantly shares with band member Snake Whizzletits.

Intercut with his unique and occasionally perplexing experiences of New Zealand and the locals he meets along the way is his brilliant one-off performance filmed live at Auckland's Mercury Theatre. 

Woven into his melodic live performance are stories of all the oddball characters that make up Wilsons life in his home town of Cripple Creek Colorado including his his quirky family, vindictive horse Andrew and his favourite childhood pet -  all delivered in his understated deadpan style that he has become famous for.
