You will get to experience world-class performances that visit from all around the world and interact with members of the public, events staff, and performers across Aotea Centre, Auckland Town Hall, The Civic, Bruce Mason Centre, Mt Smart Stadium, QBE Stadium and Western Springs Stadium, and Queen's wharf.
