SIX60 have only just finished one of their first stints on TV with the recording of their 2020 Western Springs concert shown on TVNZ 1 over the weekend, and they've already dropped their next project.
The band announced that they would be releasing a movie about the band and how it came to be.
Made in association with the New Zealand Film Commission, NZ On Air and Notable Pictures, the documentary tells the incredible untold story of SIX60, a Dunedin student band that went on to become a national phenomenon, becoming the first and only Kiwi band to sell out New Zealand’s biggest stadium.
With the initial release date delayed due to Covid-19, the release of the trailer begins the countdown to the film premiere in cinemas.
In 2019, SIX60 defied all convention when they attempted to be the first-ever New Zealand band to headline a concert at Western Springs Stadium.
Alongside jaw-dropping coverage of their record-breaking concert is never seen before archival footage of Matiu Walters, Ji Fraser, Eli Paewai, Marlon Gerbes and Chris Mac on the extraordinary road they’ve taken to achieve a power of an appeal unseen in Aotearoa.
The film is set to be released later this year.
