OPSHOP Honours Christchurch Earthquake Victims


OPSHOP Honours Christchurch Earthquake Victims



Local Cantabrian band OPSHOP made a heartfelt tribute to the victims of the 2011 Christchurch on the anniversary of the disaster
Releasing 185 balloons during their sold out show at The Groynes as part of the More FM Summer Vineyard Tour, the crowd took a moment of silence to honour the lives lost.

The band, who are originally from Christchurch, reflected on where they were when they first found out about the disaster. Coincidently, they were meant to be playing another vineyard show and dedicated themselves to making this show everything that one was meant to be.

OPSHOP played to a sold out crowd at The Groynes, alongside Australian singer/songwriter Missy Higgins, and local legends Che Fu and Aaradhna.

The tour plays its final show at Auckland’s Turanga Creek tonight.
