You Are Us concerts: $1.3 million raised for Christchurch terror attack victims

Two concerts held to remember the victims of the Christchurch terror attack raised more than $1.3 million to help those affected.

"This is another example of how people all over have come together in order to show solidarity with our Muslim community and with our city," Christchurch City Mayor Lianne Dalziel said.

All proceeds from the two concerts - held in Auckland on April 13 and Christchurch on April 17 - will go to the 'Our People, Our City' fund set up to help those affected by the Christchurch shootings, which left 51 dead and 50 more injured.

"This will go a long way to meeting some of the long-term needs of the community," Dalziel said.

On Friday, concert organisers presented a cheque to Dalziel for more than $1.33m.

A statement said organisers Brent Eccles, of Eccles Entertainment, and Mark Kneebone, of Live Nation, thanked people for their contributions.

"They would love to see the proceeds from both concerts used to support the future of families of the victims and their children's education."
