These events are being produced by the industry’s main music promoters working together with support from various organisations from New Zealand and other parts of the world.
“We just had to step up together and do something to help the devastated families but also to show that we are one country” - said promoter Brent Eccles, Eccles Entertainment
“Music has the power to heal and bring us together in ways nothing else does. It is a unifying force across cultures, languages and religions and we will use music to honour the ones we have lost, their families and all affected by this tragedy,” said promoter Mark Kneebone, Live Nation.
Additionally, Ticketmaster and Ticketek will donate the booking fees from purchased tickets to the Our People, Our City fund.
