Description

A critical and commercial sensation in their home country of New Zealand, Kiwi four-piece SIX60 continuously break records for ticket sales, chart topping albums & singles and new innovative ways of getting their music to their fans. But outside of their antipodean environs, they were less well known. That is, until a string of concerts last year changed the band’s trajectory on the global stage forever. The nationwide tour known as ‘SIX60 Saturdays’ culminated in the band playing to over 50,000 people at Auckland’s Eden Park Stadium – and they were the only band performing live to crowds anywhere in the world at the time.

SIX60’s beginnings were far more humble than you might imagine for a multi-platinum selling stadium band at the centre of a worldwide media frenzy. Friends first through university and playing in local Rugby sides, the 4 boys began jamming out covers of New Zealand roots songs and covers of bands such as Fat Freddy’s Drop and Trinity Roots, before playing shows at college parties, developing a devout fan following. Walters recalls of their quick rise to success: “Then we booked out some time in a studio – not much time as I remember it – and went in there with a box of beers and went through everything, and made a record. We put it on Facebook and the next day – it just blew up.” They have since released three studio albums – all of which shot to number one in the album charts, spawning countless number ones, multi-platinum singles too.
