Whanganui residents have done their part to bring kiwi band Six60 to town for a free gig.

Six60 will perform in a quick acoustic jam at the Royal Wanganui Opera House on Sunday, November 10.

Fans were invited to cast an online vote for their region in the hopes of bringing the band to perform as part of a quick "Hometown Visit" tour. The top two regions that secured the most votes would get performances.

The poll closed last night with Whanganui and Gisborne coming out on top.


Six60 will have a limited album signing following the performance.

The free event has a limited capacity.

Jonathan Sykes, Whanganui & Partners strategic lead for brand, events & i-Site, said there was already a lot of buzz around the show.

"The winner was decided by popular vote, so we clearly have demand for big names and events that appeal to a younger audience.

"I'm sure when Six60 see the queue outside the Opera House, they'll consider coming back for a bigger gig in the future."
