A concert promoter is frustrated at the lack of support for the sector. 

Several events have already been cancelled this year due to the Omicron outbreak. 

The latest includes Wellington's Homegrown Music Festival and New Plymouth's Womad. 

Capital C Concerts Owner Phil Sprey told Mike Hosking it's devastating to see more concerts being pulled for another year. 

“We’ve actually to the Government, to the Prime Minister’s office et cetera saying here’s a way from our industry perspective that we can keep some of these things alive. Did we get an answer? No.”
