Tuesday, August 15 2017 - SIX60 are teaming up with Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz for The New Waves World Tour - taking the two acts across Europe in October and November, before heading downunder for four massive New Zealand dates in January.
The band has spent much of 2017 working on new music, recording in Auckland, London and LA alongside Printz Board, who also produced the band’s platinum second self titled album - an album that remains in the NZ top 40 charts after a staggering 128 weeks.
The band has just touched down in New Zealand after their latest stint in the recording studio in LA, and promise that new music will definitely be included in the setlist for the tour.
SIX60 frontman Matiu Walters says that the band can’t wait to get back on stage. “This tour is really exciting because we’ll be travelling across Europe supporting Nico & Vinz in their part of the world, before they come to New Zealand for the first time to support us on the New Zealand dates.”
“We met Nico & Vinz when we were recording in their studio in LA and discovered that we’ve got a lot in common in what we believe about music and the way it affects and connects people, and how our music is influenced by our roots and genres like R&B.”
“The New Waves World Tour represents how music is like the tides that ebb and flow, eventually ending up on the other side of the world. Both bands have got new parts of the world to see, and fresh music to share with our fans."
Nico & Vinz are best known in NZ for their hits ‘In Your Arms’ and ‘That’s How You Know’ and #1 single ‘Am I Wrong’.
Nico & Vinz say “New Zealand has been a market that has supported our music so strongly, so we are really excited to get down there and play in front of the fans. We saw some of the footage of Six60 tours from the past and it's exciting to think about playing in front of such a passionate incredible crowd.”
Also joining the tour is Kiwi hip hop musician and producer Kings, who burst on the scene last year with ‘Don’t Worry ‘Bout It’ seeing him named Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards last year his continuing success garnering him four Vodafone Pacific New Zealand Music Awards this June.
