Get your tickets to NZ music’s biggest night

With less than a week to go until the New Zealand Music Awards 2006, the race is on for the public to snap up the last of the tickets on sale this year.

For the first time in recent years a limited number of public tickets to the awards are available for what is usually an industry-only event.

With a list of finalists including Bic Runga, Elemeno P, The Bleeders, Opensouls, Aaradhna, Frontline, Don McGlashan, Dave Dobbyn and Concord Dawn there will be something for everyone at this year’s awards.

The NZ Music Awards show always promises to be a big night with hosts Jaquie Brown and Oliver Driver and plenty of surprise performers and presenters.

“In the past we have seen Hayley Westenra sing with Misfits of Science, Scribe collaborate with Blindspott and Dave Dobbyn perform with Ahmed Zaoui. This year we can expect to see more exciting collaborations,” says RIANZ music awards spokesperson Campbell Smith.

Tickets are $47.50 each (incl. GST, plus any booking fee) and available from Ticketek, Real Groovy, Sounds and Marbecks.
