The rest of New Zealand moves to Alert Level 2 at 11.59pm Tuesday 7th September. This will be reviewed by the Government on Monday 13 September. Please see the updated Alert Level 2 restrictions info HERE.

This means a raft of live gigs are now being postponed or cancelled nationwide. Here's a rolling list below of which UTR-related shows have been impacted thus far, follow the links below for more details — all ticket holders to UTR events will be contacted via email of the updated event info.

How to help support our music community:

- For those who have the means to do so, we encourage ticket holders to consider opting to hold onto tickets, opting out of refunds and opting out of booking fee refunds.

- If you haven’t done so already, now is the time to download the contact tracer app and use it — download it here.

- Here are the health and hygiene guidelines to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 — please mask up
