Six60 Takes Aotea By Storm and Loves Every Minute!

Six60 has well and truly landed on Great Barrier Island, and by the looks of it, they’re having an epic time! The popular Kiwi band arrived yesterday, documenting their journey on Instagram for their nearly 300,000 followers.

Their adventure began with a scenic farewell to Auckland (“See you later Tāmaki Makaurau!”) before touching down at Claris Airport. There, they were met by a wave of enthusiastic tamariki from Okiwi, Kaitoke and Mulberry Grove schools, who eagerly awaited autographs from their musical heroes.

Next stop? Kaitoke Beach! Chris Mac and artist Makayla couldn’t resist dipping their toes in the moana. The band continued their exploration, stopping at Medlands. “Oh man, what a beautiful place,” wrote the American-born, Ngāti Kahungunu singer.

This morning, they posted the sign at Claris Store announcing a 1 pm closure for tonight’s concert, reading, “!!SIX60 COMING!!” The excitement was palpable! From there, the band explored the island’s art galleries and quenched their thirst at Aotea Brewing, giving a big thumbs up. “Highly recommend the APA,” Chris posted, with a video of the brewery.

The main event? Six60 is set to rock the Barrier Social Club this afternoon at 2pm as part of their Grassroots Tour. Tickets for the show sold out within minutes back in March, prompting Barrier Air to add extra flights to accommodate an influx of eager fans.
