Allphones Arena shapes up for biggest ever year

Allphones Arena shapes up for biggest ever year
February 12, 2013

After an incredibly successful 2012, which saw stellar shows from the likes of J-Lo, Prince, The Wiggles, The Beach Boys, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift among many others, 2013 is shaping up to be an even bigger year at Allphones Arena with some remarkable shows booked, a myriad of world class acts lined up to take the stage and some soon to be announced surprises at the major concert venue.

Starting the year off with a bang was Diva, Mariah Carey. It had been over 10 years since Mariah's last visit to our shores and it was well worth the wait for the sell-out crowd who sang along en masse to a soundtrack of greatest hits from the songbird's illustrious career.

Next up multi-Grammy and three-time ARIA Award winner, and recently anointed American Idol Judge, Aussie country music superstar Keith Urban who took to the stage over two massive nights delighting fans and leaving his female followers in particular positively swooning. Keith's Voice cohorts, The Madden Brothers, also joined him at the Arena strengthening their position as honorary sons of our fair nation.

Celtic Thunder also made a welcome return Down Under again mesmerising audiences on a journey through the varying styles of Celtic music, from classic love songs to traditional and contemporary Irish songs.

One of the most anticipated bands to visit Australia this year, BLINK 182, will be making their first trip to Australia in over 10 years with Allphones Arena hosting the punk trio's first performance.

Dubbed 'Mammoth March', the month will see a comic master-mind, an unparalleled line-up of hardcore's finest and an almost unbelievable bunch of undisputed rock legends, tearing up Allphones Arena.

Among events to be staged The 'Monster Tour' rolls into town with rock bands Kiss and Mötley Crüe, followed up just two days later with rockers Guns N' Roses before lightening the mood when comic rock star Russell Peters returns to our stage on his Notorious World Tour.

Closing Mammoth March for the grand finale is Bruce Springsteen together with the E-Street Band who hit the Arena for three massive nights on the Wrecking Ball Tour.

In April, rock Black Sabbath will return to Australia for the first time in 40 years, performing with their legendary lead singer Ozzy Osbourne.

In May, one California's darkest and heaviest rock bands, Tool, return to Australia and take the stage at Allphones Arena.

As the year progresses the Arena will present International Ice-Hockey in June, the stars of WWE RAW in July, pop-star P!NK wll return for three sell-out shows in September and, in October, global pop-phenomenon One Direction will captivate audiences while Allphones Arena favourite, André Rieu, will also present his And the Waltz Goes On Tour.

With more announcements still yet to come for the rest of the year, Allphones Arena General Manager Guy Ngata explained "we have a huge year ahead of us. The 2013 calendar is quickly filling up with a range of unique and unmissable shows, and this is only the beginning. We've got more announcements on the way that are sure to keep Sydney-siders very happy."

Allphones Arena is a Nine Entertainment Co. Venue, managed by AEG Ogden.
