What Would You Risk, To Achieve Your Dream?
SIX60 made history as the first kiwi act to sell out New Zealand’s largest venue, playing to an audience of 50,000 people… this is their incredible story of never giving up.
SIX60 are a phenomenon. In the history of New Zealand culture, no musical act has ever garnered such a wide connection with fans. Their incredible story, from a Dunedin student band, to becoming the first and only Kiwi act to headline Western Springs Stadium in front of 50,000 fans, will surprise even the band’s most ardent followers. For the first time, SIX60 open up about their personal battles, the lack of critical acceptance and the challenges of staying together.
From humble beginnings to becoming the biggest band in New Zealand, the members of SIX60: Matiu Walters, Chris Mac, Eli Paewai, Marlon Gerbes and Ji Fraser, show incredible fortitude, self-belief and good humour. This is the compelling story of five men maturing and coming to terms with both themselves and their changing relationships with each other, as they set about forging their own identity and looking to the future.
The story of SIX60’s rise to fame, is one inextricably linked to New Zealand and kiwi culture, but is also a story of love, compassion and never giving up.
