Kiwi music stars Six60 have played to huge crowds the last two times they were in Northland and another bumper turnout is expected when they band plays in Waitangi in January.
Six60 are NZ's most successful band in recent years, and has twice sold out Auckland's Western Springs - the only Kiwi act to do so.
The band - Matiu Walters (vocals, guitar), Ji Fraser (leadguitar), Eli Paewai (drums), Marlon Gerbes (synths, samples) and Chris Mac (bass) - have also been the only act to sell out Whangarei's Toll Stadium when they played there in 2016 and 2018.
The band sold an incredible 130,000 tickets to their 'Saturdays' tour earlier this year and with international touring out of the question for some time, Six60 is taking its Saturday tour on the road again in 2021, playing six dates across the country.
This time Six60 is taking on some new cities and large outdoor venues. Each concert has a hand picked line up of musical guests meaning each show is its' own exclusive experience.
The tour will kick off at Waitangi Sports Grounds on January 16. And there's a pretty strong line up of support acts, including Northland's own multi-talented, multi-award-winning singer/musician/entertainer Troy Kingi.
Also lined up for the Waitangi show is Drax Project, The Clutch, Paige and Neko.
This is set to be another groundbreaking tour for the multi-platinum selling band with fans being treated to the first live performance of some of Six60's latest material.
The band has been working on some brand-new tracks throughout this year quickly following up from last year's epic release that produced stand out hits 'The Greatest', 'Please Don't Go', 'Long Gone' and 'Sundown'.
Ticket providers will be running pre-sales from 12pm October 15 and general public tickets are on sale from 12pm on October 19.

On November 26 ahead of the summer tour, Notable Pictures will release Six60: Till The Lights Go Out, a feature film about the band, revealing their untold story of ambition and creative vulnerability.
