UTR Update: NZ Shows Cancelled / Postponed Due To COVID-19 Restrictions

UTR Update: NZ Shows Cancelled / Postponed Due To COVID-19 Restrictions

C.C. / Monday 16th March, 2020 11:51AM

UPDATED 24/03/20: Aotearoa will enter alert Level 4 for the next four weeks, from midnight this coming Wednesday 24th March onwards in response to the Covid-19 coronavirus, meaning everyone in NZ has been instructed to stay at home during that time (full details over here). Jacinda Ardern's latest announcement and earlier restrictions have unavoidably resulted in a number of Aotearoa events now unable to go forward as originally planned. Here's which UTR-related shows have been impacted thus far – follow the links below for more details, we'll keep this list updated as more relevant info comes to hand...
