Six60 announce their plans for next summer, and and the news is both huge and groundbreaking.
Six60 will be the first New Zealand band ever to headline at the iconic venue, Western Springs Stadium.
The concert on Saturday 23rd February is the band’s only New Zealand show this coming summer and fans from all over New Zealand are encouraged to make their plans to come to Auckland now.
If that news wasn’t big enough, there’s more! the all-ages show will also feature a support line-up curated by Six60 of the biggest Kiwi acts right now Drax Project, Sons of Zion, SWIDT and IllBaz.
This announcement comes after a record-breaking tour in summer 2018 that saw Six60 play to over 40,000 fans around New Zealand following the release of their platinum certified six-track EP, with hits including ‘Don’t Give It Up’ and current single ‘Vibes’.
Tickets go on sale at midday on Friday 6 July at Ticketmaster.
Promoter Brent Eccles says that the time is right to put on a Six60 concert at Western Springs Stadium.
“I have watched Six60 and their audience grow to something special over the past few years. Their recordings and live shows are phenomenal. Now I think it’s time to present them on the biggest stage in New Zealand - the iconic Western Springs. We are very proud of what they’ve done and excited for them! This will be huge!”
Singer Matiu Walters says playing a venue like Western Springs is a huge deal for the band and they’re in full planning mode to make it an amazing experience for fans.
“We’re going to be bringing some new music to the concert, as well as everyone’s favourite songs and we’re also focusing on how we can make the stage show really special. We’re stoked that so many of our favourite acts are going to be playing the show with us.”
This is Six60’s only New Zealand show this summer, and a concert not to be missed.
