SIX60 will play the first ever concert at Eden park this Saturday 24th April to the largest crowd of the SATURDAYS tour!
To celebrate the band’s history-making concert at Eden Park, artist Glenn Jones was commissioned to create a SIX60 mural which has just been installed in Mount Eden.
In what is set to be a monumental event, the band are pulling out all the stops to make it an unforgettable evening for all.
Some however are unable to be in Aotearoa for the show so SIX60 together with Pasifika TV will be broadcasting the entire concert to eleven pacific islands live that evening.
Pacific Cooperation Broadcasting Limited is pleased to partner with SIX60 to broadcast their history-making concert from Eden Park LIVE to the Pacific on Saturday 24 April 2021, from 8.30pm-10.30pm (NZT) via its Pasifika TV service.
“Te Moana nui o kiwa is what bonds Aotearoa and the Pacific, so it is quite fitting that this historic occasion for SIX60 at Eden Park, is also met with an historic FIRST for broadcasting a concert LIVE from Tamaki Makaurau into the Pacific,” says, Natasha Meleisea, PCBL Chief Executive Officer.
“SIX60 have been great to work with and their embedded values of culture, language and whanau resonate well with Pasifika. Their hit single ‘Don’t forget your roots’ epitomises who they are as a group, and when they re-released that hit in Te Reo, it further demonstrated a deep-rooted connection to their cultural identity. SIX60’s kind gesture to share their concert with more than 10.5 million people across 11 Pacific islands – makes them natural ambassadors of music for Aotearoa.” she adds.
SIX60 SATURDAYS live from Eden Park will be screened in the Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Tonga and Vanuatu.
In response, SIX60 feel extremely humbled to have their concert broadcast to the islands “It’s an amazing feeling to share the Eden Park show with Aotearoa’s extended community throughout the Pacific Islands. For a lot of people it’s been too long since they’ve seen their loved ones and we wanted to open our hearts to those families and broadcast our concert so that family members can enjoy the experience together.”
Also, in another big first for the band, fans outside of New Zealand and the Pacific Islands can also stream the concert live from Eden Park using the new innovative Veep Video on demand service. It will be the first video on demand international stadium concert since the start of the pandemic. All tickets purchased for the broadcast include 7 days ‘On Demand’ viewing access allowing you to watch the concert at a time convenient to you!
