Get ready Taranaki, because New Zealand’s ultimate summer party starters Six60 are heading to the Bowl of Brooklands this summer.
The Kiwi legends will take to the TSB Bowl of Brooklands stage on Saturday February 1, as part of a six-date nationwide tour.
The announcement comes after their gig at Western Springs Stadium next February sold out, for the second year in a row, prompting the band to add an extra five dates around the country.
Six60 will bring some of New Zealand’s hottest talent along for the ride, with support by Kiwi music royalty Dave Dobbyn, singer-songwriter Mitch James, and RnB/pop up-and-comer Paige.
NPDC recreation and culture manager Teresa Turner said Six60 were nothing short of Kiwi legends.
“Six60 is a perfect band for the Bowl, a unique Kiwi sound for a unique Kiwi venue,” she said.
“Having the country’s favourite band at one of the most iconic settings in New Zealand is going to be fantastic and it’s sure to be a great night.”
Six60 is the third big name-act to be announced for the premier outdoor venue this summer, after American icons Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals were confirmed last month, and just earlier this week, A Summer’s Day Disco concert featuring disco legends KC and the Sunshine Band, Earth Wind and Fire Experience featuring Al McKay, Boney M and The Australian Bee Gees Show was announced.
Turner said the events team was always on the lookout for the next big act to bring to the Bowl.
“It can take months or years of working with promoters to secure acts, so when we manage to bring in three crackers in one year, that’s a real reason to celebrate.”
Six60 hold records for the combined album sales of 15 x platinum and selling over 1 million singles in New Zealand alone. They’ve also won a total of five NZ Music Awards.
