SIX60 return to the mighty Western Springs Stadium next February for another record-breaking show!
SIX60 made New Zealand history earlier this year when they sold out Western Springs at break neck speed (over 50,000 tickets), proving them to be the highest ticket selling artists of all time!
“The last show at Western Springs was such a big moment for us. The love we felt at Western Springs was truly special, so there was no hesitation when the idea came up of doing it all over again. And this time, we want to go even bigger! We can’t wait!” - SIX60
The band also hold records for the combined album sales of 15 Platinum records and selling over one million singles in New Zealand alone. They’ve also scored a total of five NZ Music Awards including Best Group in 2018; while sophomore album SIX60 (2) has spent an unbelievable 230 weeks in the NZ Top 40 Charts.
Already living up to its name, brand-new single ‘The Greatest’ is proving to be another smash hit. Of the song, the band say, “We initially drew inspiration for ‘The Greatest’ upon seeing that iconic photo of Mohammed Ali with The Beatles, but it’s now taken on a life of its own. It’s important to us that we keep striving to be better, never stop aiming higher. We, as a nation always punch above our weight in so many ways, because of that self-belief and drive. We wanted to make a song that reflects that.”
Joining SIX60 at Western Springs is a monster line-up of international and local artists…
