It’s not long until the nation will come together to honour and raise money for the victims of the Christchurch terror attacks at two huge charity concerts, You Are Us/Aroha Nui.

The Auckland concert this Saturday 13th of April is sold-out, however tickets remain available to the Christchurch show on Wednesday 17th of April from ticketek.co.nz.

Some of New Zealand’s biggest acts will take to the stage alongside performers and speakers of cultural diversity where the proceeds of both concerts will go to the Our People, Our City Fund.

Both events will be hosted by MIKE KING (New Zealander of the Year). The official line- up of performers and cultural speakers will differ in each city.

YOU ARE US/ AROHA NUI WILL BE BROADCAST LIVE, April 17th, 7pm on Three, and streamed live on ThreeNow for New Zealand. International audiences will also be able to watch the concert live and commercial free on ThreeNow . It is also available to listen to on pop up channel YOU ARE US/AROHA NUI on Rova music app.

These events are being produced by the industry’s main music promoters working together with support from various organisations from New Zealand and other parts of the world.

You Are Us/Aroha Nui is also fortunate to have the support of some of New Zealand’s top fashion designers – Harman Grubisa, Karen Walker and Zambesi – alongside New Zealand artist Ruby Jones, who have all created individual designs for special commemorative t-shirts [see below]. A very limited number of t-shirts [made with the support of Love Police] will be available to be purchased at the event only and will cost $40 with all proceeds going to the Our People, Our City Fund.

Artist Ruby Jones, who’s globally-shared image of two women from different cultures embracing each other fast became a powerful representation of New Zealand’s resilience, explains the meaning of her design.

"This design represents us growing closer as a nation, moving forward from the Christchurch attacks. A greater closeness, a greater openness to others, which I hope will not fade into a moment, but instead will bind us to a national identity we can truly be proud of.”
