Michael Bublé to farewell Allianz Stadium
Global superstar Michael Bublé will thrill Australian fans after a long absence from performing during a one-off special event on Friday, October 5 at Allianz Stadium.
It will be the final event held at the 30-year-old venue, which will be closed until 2022 while it undergoes its redevelopment into a world class stadium of up to 45,000 seats.
It’s the first time Bublé has returned to Australia since his hugely successful record-breaking 2014 tour, with tickets to go on sale at 10am on Friday, August 3. SCG Trust members will also have access to an exclusive presale.
Paul Dainty, President and CEO of TEG DAINTY said the Canadian Superstar is adored by Australian audiences and the company is delighted to present this blockbuster show.
“Michael has toured Australia many times and we know Australians will be thrilled to have an opportunity to welcome him back again, particularly after his recent absence from the stage,” Mr. Dainty said.
Beginning with a passion for singing and interpreting great standards from the American Songbook, Buble’s unprecedented musical course began with the release of his self-titled Top 10 album and a Canadian Juno Award for “Best New Artist”.
Bublé has sold over 50 million albums worldwide and has had multiple number one albums in Australia. His best-seller “Christmas” has been to the top of the charts seven years in a row and has sold over one million records in this country.
Bublé has toured the globe many times and has won four Grammy Awards, 13 Juno Awards, has released three DVDs and starred in five NBC Holiday Specials.
In early July, after a nearly a three-year layoff, during which he focused on his son’s successful battle with cancer, he took the stage in Dublin’s Croke Park in front of 65 thousand fans to unanimous rave reviews.
The next weekend he headlined British Summer Time in London’s Hyde Park where 5O thousand fans stood in the rain and sang along with the Canadian Superstar.
Michael believes that the layoff has given him a new perspective on his life, which has helped him to deliver his eighth studio album, due out later this year.
“This perspective has cost a lot, but it has allowed me to truly rekindle a romance with music,” Bublé said. “And I can’t wait to get to Australia and perform.”
It marks the last of a long list of celebrated artists and bands to have played at Allianz Stadium including Robbie Williams, George Michael, Bon Jovi, the Foo Fighters, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, U2, Coldplay and One Direction.
It will mark three decades since the opening concert at the venue, which saw music icon John Denver take to the stage alongside his support acts Eurogliders, Air Supply and Dragon.
SCG Trust members presale: August 2 (10am) until August 3 (8am)
General public on sale: August 3 (10am)
