New Zealand's ultimate summer party starters SIX60 will play at the TSB Bowl of Brooklands on Saturday, February 1, as part of a six-date nationwide tour.
The Kiwi legends are headed to the Bowl after their record-breaking show 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.

The band will be joined by some of New Zealand's hottest talent, with support by Kiwi music royalty Dave Dobbyn, singer-songwriter Mitch James, and RnB-pop up and comer Paige.
New Plymouth District Council (NPDC) recreation and culture manager Teresa Turner says Six60 are nothing short of Kiwi legends and the region's music lovers were now spoiled for choice, with three top-class evenings of entertainment locked in.
"Six60 is a perfect band for the Bowl, a unique Kiwi sound for a unique Kiwi venue."
"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."
Teresa paid tribute to NPDC's Venues team for the work they'd done securing the summer line-up.
Six60 is the third big name-act to be announced for the 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.
"We're always on the lookout for the next big act to bring to the TSB Bowl of Brooklands," she says.
"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. 'The Greatest' (Gold) is up for the prestigious 'Single Of The Year' Tui at this year's Music Awards, while sophomore album SIX60 (2) (5x Platinum) has spent an unbelievable 239 weeks in the NZ Top 40 Album Chart.
Their latest single 'Please Don't Go' is out today and is sure to dominate radio this summer. With a new album just around the corner, ticket holders can expect to see fresh tunes debuted alongside fan favourites.
With all 50,000 tickets to the Western Springs Stadium show being snapped up within just two months, fans are advised to get in quick.
