In a first for New Zealand’s biggest and most decorated band, SIX60 will play exclusively in small towns and venues across Aotearoa this April and May, recording each show to compile a new Best Of album. They’ll be taking their biggest hits, some of which have only ever been heard live in New Zealand’s biggest stadiums, rearranging them into acoustic and unplugged stripped back versions, and playing in some of New Zealand’s most beloved small town venues. Beginning at lead singer Matiu’s marae: Pōtahi Marae in Te Kao, the tour will take in a host of locations off the beaten track. From the Piha Surf Club, to Waimate’s Regent Theatre, and Te Puka Tavern, this is fans' chance to get up close and personal with SIX60 to hear their iconic stadium hits reworked for stunning small town pubs, theatres, halls and more.
Echoing the sentiments of one of their most beloved songs, "Kia Mau Ki Tō Ūkaipō / Don't Forget Your Roots," this tour embodies the band's commitment to their roots and the profound bond they share with their fans. SIX60 Sessions - The Grassroots Tour will bring the band back to the grassroots, celebrating the essence of music and the unbreakable connection with their audience. In true SIX60 fashion, not only will they be playing live each night, they will be recording these moments for a ‘Best Of Grassroots Tour’ to be released later this year offering fans a tangible piece of New Zealand music history.
