Ticketmaster Australia and New Zealand have united with the New Zealand music industry to raise funds for the victims of the Christchurch terror attacks.

Many of New Zealand’s biggest musical acts will come together at Auckland’s Spark Arena to raise funds and stand in solidarity for those affected by the Christchurch terror attacks.

All proceeds from ticket sales for the concert events, You Are Us/Aroha Nui, will go to the Our People, Our City fund, which was set up by the Christchurch Foundation in the wake of the attack.

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. Live Nation’s Mark Kneebone said: “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.”

As well as donating the booking fees from all ticket purchases for the Auckland event, Ticketmaster has also made an additional $10,000 donation to the Our People, Our City fund.

The Auckland You Are Us/Aroha Nui event will take place on Saturday 13 April at Spark Arena. Christchurch Stadium will also host a You Are Us/Aroha Nui event on Wednesday 17 April.
