Thousands of concertgoers in Christchurch spent three and a half hours last night rocking out to the nations best homegrown talent in tribute to the terror attacks last month.

Upwards of 20,000 people packed into Christchurch Stadium for the You Are Us/Aroha Nui benefit concert featuring musicians like Lorde and Six60.

All proceeds from the benefit concert will go to the Our People, Our City fund, set up to help those affected by the Christchurch terror attacks.
