Six60 set to rock Western Springs

Fifty-thousand fans are set to crowd the stage at Auckland's Western Springs for a concert Kiwi pop group Six60.

The band has broken records by selling out the stadium, making them the first New Zealand band to do so.

A documentary about the band will be filmed during Saturday night's performance.

They will be supported by ILLBaz, SWIDT, sons of Zion and Drax Project.

"We've got an amazing line-up of support acts taking the stage from 5pm," said promoter Dave Munro. "It promises to be a very special night and we're excited to be sharing it with so many Six60 fans."

"It is gonna be bang on, weather is mint," said one fan before the show.

Six60 hit the stage at 8:50pm.

A number of roads around the venue will be closed to traffic, including sections of Stadium Rd, Bullock Track Rd, West View Rd, Old Mill Rd, Great North Rd, Tuarangi Rd, Williamson Ave and Surrey Cres.

Previous acts to perform at Western Springs include Robbie Williams, Led Zeppelin, Eminem, Guns N' Roses, ZZ Top, U2, AC/DC, ELO, Kiss, Stevie Wonder, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley and David Bowie.
