SIX60: Till the Lights Go Out, a new documentary from Julia Parnell, which charts the rise of the pop-dub band, has received its world premiere in-flight.
Passengers on the dedicated A321neo flight were joined by the band, who gave a surprise performance at the gate lounge in Auckland.
According to Air New Zealand’s Chief Customer and Sales Officer Leanne Geraghty: “We’re so excited to be operating this special flight today to premiere the film, celebrate SIX60’s phenomenal success, and acknowledge our customers for their support throughout this year. The fact that tickets sold out in just seven hours is a reflection of the band’s popularity and how proud we are of them as Kiwis.
“We specifically built the package around a one-way ticket to Dunedin as a way of supporting tourism to the city and the region.”
SIX60’s Matiu Walters said: “We love new challenges and are always trying to push new boundaries in SIX60, so we are so stoked to be hosting the very first World Premiere in the Air. To be able to have the opportunity to fly alongside a planeload of fans back to Dunedin where it all began for us feels really special. This is the first time fans will be able to check out SIX60: Till The Lights Go Out, so it definitely feels like a day of firsts!”
SIX60: Till The Lights Go Out produced by Notable Pictures in association with the New Zealand Film Commission and NZ On Air is in NZ cinemas from 26 November 2020.
