In a statement Live Nation New Zealand Chairman, Stuart Clumpas said: “Live Nation NZ is excited to be welcoming back live events in New Zealand. The Together Again series is an opportunity for us to unite and celebrate the power of live with some of the country’s first socially distanced shows.
“The safety of our artists, audience, and staff is always a major focus at Live Nation events and venues, and especially so at this time. Our staff have been working extremely hard to get the doors open again and we aim to deliver not only a great live experience but also one that adheres to all the extra health and safety precautions and measures that line up with the government advice for events at level two.
“We thank everyone in advance for making the effort to follow the new rules and guidelines that will be in place for these evolving times.”
Live Nation and Tuning Fork are taking a number of precautions, in accordance with public health and safety advice, including temperature screening, contact tracing, changes to conditions of entry and processing times entering the venue, operating at a reduced 100-person capacity, staff wearing essential Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as masks and gloves, physical distancing of patrons, updated cleaning procedures and contactless technologies. Additionally, drinks and snacks will be available via table service exclusively with ordering from your seat via a mobile phone or other handheld device.
