Six60’s biggest concert at Eden Park is making history and it’s been announced that they will also be live-streaming it to the Pacific Islands! The broadcast will be live this Saturday from 8.30 pm-10.30 pm (NZT).
The concert will be broadcast in the Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Tonga and Vanuatu via its Pacifika 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
"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." Natasha Meleisea, PCBL Chief Executive Officer said.
Six60 have said,
“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.”
