Biographical Note

Harry Maurice Miller was born in Auckland, New Zealand in 1934. In the late 1950s he established himself as a show business promoter and entrepreneur. In 1963 he moved to Australia, establishing the firm Pan Pacific Productions Pty Ltd. Throughout the 1960s he promoted a large number of concert and theatre tours of Australia and New Zealand. These included tours by such artists as Louis Armstrong, Artur Rubinstein, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys. He consolidated his reputation in the early 1970s by promoting the hugely successful musicals "Hair" and "Jesus Christ Superstar". Later in the 1970s he was appointed a Director of Qantas and organiser of the Queen's Silver Jubilee celebrations in Australia. In 1978 he established the firm Computicket which went into receivership within six months. In 1982 Miller was convicted on five charges of fraudulent misappropriation in connection with Computicket, and spent ten months in Long Bay and Cessnock jails.
