Aotearoa Level 2 Gigs For Halloween Weekend

Aotearoa Level 2 Gigs For Halloween Weekend

A major question looms over Aotearoa for the forthcoming weekend like a dark foreboding shadow: what are you dressing up as for Halloween? Whether you're going as a psychedelic witch, a synth-playing wizard, a cheeseburger addict, or simply everyone's favourite sheet-wearing ghost, there's a raft of seated shows for you to spook along to for those dwelling outside of Tāmaki Makaurau (where gigs are presently still on ice due to Alert Level 3).

The government announced late late week the forthcoming new system of three traffic light levels (Green, Orange, Red) that will allow live events to operate at various degrees of restriction once 90% of eligible New Zealanders are fully vaccinated. We're all for gigs to open up safely as soon as possible for those most at risk from Covid-19 in our community. We encourage you to help protect yourself, friends and family by getting vaccinated if you haven't done so already (our team is now all double vaccinated) — you can get the ball rolling by booking HERE.

Here's what's on the cards across Aotearoa this weekend under Alert Level 2. Don't forget that masks and social distancing are required, but gigs are no longer capped at a specific number of attendees — check out the updated Level 2 guidelines for bars HERE and for events / entertainment HERE. We recommend grabbing presale tickets for the shows below (where available) while you can...
