Kiwi sensations Six60 are taking centre stage at the State of Origin Game 3 pre-game show in Sydney next month.
The NZ musical legends know a thing or two about massive stadium crowds, having filled New Zealand's biggest venues time and time again.
Now, they're about to unleash an electrifying performance that will set the perfect tone for the return of NRL’s greatest rivalry to Sydney.
Announcing the exciting news on their Instagram, the band wrote: “Stoked to announce we are playing the pre-show at game 3 of State of Origin 🏉 Who ya backing?”
Queensland already claimed victory in the first encounter, which means New South Wales needs to win next week's game at Suncorp Stadium if they want to level the series and create a nail-biting finale.
On July 12, Accor Stadium is going to be bursting at the seams with eager fans, ready to soak in the sounds of Six60 and witness their amazing talent.
I wonder whether their performance will include both Māori and the indigenous Aboriginal cultures that they've so beautifully blended into their performances in the past?
Lead singer Matiu Walters couldn't contain his excitement as he said: "It’s an honour to be playing the pre-game show for Game 3 of State of Origin 2023!"
He went on to express the band's deep love for rugby league, highlighting the State of Origin as the ultimate pinnacle of the sport.
“To be playing a part in the action is something we will never forget. We can’t wait!”
And hey, this isn't just another gig for Six60 to add to their already-impressive list of accomplishments.
This is a major milestone that will go down in their history books. So mark your calendars, gather your mates, and prepare yourselves for an unforgettable night of music and footy.
