“G’Day, it’s me – I was wondering if after 10 years in this game you’d finally like to meet me in: Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide?”
“Yep! I am coming Down Under!” the star wrote.
Treasurer and Minister for Sport, Curtis Pitt, says Adele’s performance will be the biggest live music concert at Brisbane’s ‘The Gabba’ since 1973.
“The Grammy-winner’s concert in March will be the first major concert at The Gabba since Aussie band Sherbet in 1973,” Mr Pitt said.
“This will be one of the most anticipated concerts of the year and the first big concert at The Gabba with fans seated in both the stands and on the field.
Mr Pitt said big concerts such as Adele’s were not just musical events, but also delivered significant economic and employment boosts.
“Around 1,500 staff will come together on the night to make the show happen, from catering and hospitality staff to security and event operations,” he said.
“We haven’t had a concert of this magnitude at The Gabba and I expect pubs and restaurants in the Woolloongabba precinct will benefit from a boost in patronage before and after the event.
The English singer-songwriter has sold more than 100 million records globally thanks to chart toppers such as ‘Hello’ and ‘Rolling in the Deep’.
