Six60 make history again, Western Springs Stadium sold out for second year running

Kiwi band Six60 have sold out Western Springs Stadium for the second year running, just two months after tickets for their upcoming February 2020 concert went on sale.

The 'White Lines' hitmakers have sold an unprecedented combned total of 100,000 tickets over their two shows at the Auckland venue - an achievement never before accomplished by a local artist.

"For them to achieve this twice is completely unheard of," says Eccles Entertainment booking agent Dave Munro. 

"This show is still almost five months away, making the sell-out even more significant."

Six60 say they are excited for the challenge of "making Western Springs 2020 even better than last year".

"Selling it out is really a tribute to our bond with our fans," says the band, whose latest single 'The Greatest' has been certified gold since its August debut.

The group made history as the first New Zealand band to ever sell out Western Springs Stadium, selling all 50,000 tickets to their February 2019 concert a mere 10 weeks after their release in July last year. They also became the first ever Kiwi band to headline a show at the venue.

Western Springs Stadium has previously hosted renowned international acts such as Eminem, the Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac.

The February 2020 show is set to be the highest attended one-off event in the country this summer. Lucky holders of the coveted tickets can expect to hear some new tunes alongside fan favourites at the sold-out event.

The Dunedin five-piece will be supported by popular Australian group Ocean Alley as well as local acts Mitch James and Church & AP. The line-up also includes Soraya, Niko Walters and Paige and Vayne.
