- New Zealand held it's largest concert since the coronavirus outbreak, with thousands of guests in attendance.
- The country has been able to effectively contain the virus, currently sitting at alert level one.
- No social distancing was required from those attending the live event (see photos below).
Remember concerts? Oh, how we miss the days of packing into a music venue to see our favourite acts take to the stage.
But with live events and large gatherings banned in many countries around the world as the battle against the coronavirus continues, attending a massive gig may be a distant dream for now. Except for New Zealand, of course.
New Zealand has been able to effectively contain the virus, with the country currently sitting at alert level one, NME reports. Adding that mass gatherings without social distancing have been able to run since the end of 2020.
The latest is a concert by the band Six60, which the publication says had close to 20 000 guests in attendance - no masks or social distancing required.
While the number of partiers reported by New Zealand's Northern Advocate differs - they reported about 14 000 attendees - it still is one of the largest live events to take place during this global pandemic.
According to Metro, the concert is part of a nationwide tour by Six60.
But, due to Covid-19 restrictions, an international tour is off the cards for now.
Since the beginning of the outbreak, New Zealand has reported just over 2 000 cases and 25 deaths.
The country also reportedly permitted a number of New Years Eve events while many others around the world, including South Africa, were required to adhere to strict lockdown measures.
