SYDNEY, NSW (CelebrityAccess) — British singer Adele appears to have knocked it out of the park during her Australian tour, shattering attendance records at every show on the tour.
According to Billboard, tour promoter Live Nation said Adele's tour numbers place her 2017 visit to the South Pacific nation in contention for the top tour to ever visit the ergion.
“It has been both a privilege and truly a career highlight for all at Live Nation to have been able to present Adele’s record-breaking Australian and New Zealand tour,” Michael Coppel, chairman of Live Nation Australasia said in a press statement.
Adele performed in front of 600,000 people during eight stadium shows, including 200,000 people for 2 shows at Sydney's ANZ Stadium and 70,000 at the Oval in Adelaide. At Melbourne's Etihad Stadium, Adele sold 150,000 for two shows and more than 130,000 tickets have been sold for her final three shows in Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland.
“The audiences have been ecstatic at their opportunity to see a true superstar at her peak, and, as the tour promoters, we have been gratified to be able to fully satisfy the expectations of Adele’s management, agent, production and security teams in the presentation of such a high-profile and challenging series of major concert events,” Coppel added. – Staff Writers
