It’s Showtime at the City’s New Entertainment Precinct
A new era of live entertainment was born to Sydney last night, as ICC Sydney Theatre launched to the public with a spectacular concert from world famous music legend, Keith Urban, joined by the sensational Carrie Underwood.
The special performance was part of Urban’s ripCORD World Tour Australia 2016 and took place at the state-of-the-art new venue to a packed house of 8,000 fans. The audience was blown away by the stellar sound, lighting and visuals on display at ICC Sydney Theatre, and were brought closer to the legendary performer than ever before, thanks to the unique tiered and fan-shaped design, which provides unobstructed views from every single seat.
Geoff Donaghy, CEO of ICC Sydney, said the venue will fundamentally change the way events and entertainment are experienced in the city.
“We are thrilled to have had the iconic Keith Urban launch Sydney’s new entertainment hub. Their appearance demonstrates the immense pulling power of the venue. Our exceptional facilities have truly set a new industry standard for performers and visitors alike, and we cannot wait for everyone to get a taste of the world class offer we have here.”
The Hon. Stuart Ayres MP, Minister for Trade, Tourism, Major Events and Sport, said ICC Sydney is winning over the world’s event planners and promoters, with the city set to boom thanks to a year round calendar of conventions, exhibitions and concerts within the integrated precinct.
“ICC Sydney is the first venue of its kind in the country and underpins Sydney’s reputation as one of the most desirable destinations in the world. It will help draw some of the most coveted artists to our shores for years to come, and inject over $5 billion into the local economy over the next 25 years. It’s a real game changer.”
