Kiwi band Opshop have waived the ticket fee for their Greymouth gig this Saturday to help lift spirits after Solid Energy's staff cuts.

Earlier this week Solid Energy announced 234 employees at Spring Creek Mine would be made redundant.

A further 130 contractors would also be affected.

A spokeswoman for Opshop said in light of the announcement the band decided to make their Greymouth show at that the Railway Hotel free.

All those who had brought tickets to the R18 concert would have their money refunded, she said.

The group is teaming up with comedian Brendhan Lovegrove for the nationwide "Hits and Giggles" tour, which is being run across the country over this month and October.

It has been over two years since the band last headlined their own tour.
