Etihad Stadium is no stranger to hosting major events, but they took this to a new level recently welcoming more than 150,000 people across one weekend to five magnificent Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo performances.

Demand for tickets was immense, with all five of the events selling extremely well. The events, which were held from February 12-14, were widely applauded with the very best of Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo on display.

Etihad Stadium’s arena was transformed for the Tattoo, with a replica of Edinburgh Castle erected at one end of the stadium. The crowds were treated to a spectacular entertainment experience and the precision of the performers was mind-blowing. REMT Close up

The success of the event was a major tick for the working relationship between Etihad Stadium and Ticketmaster. Now 16 years into a very long and successful partnership, Ticketmaster is proud of the work it does with Etihad Stadium to assist to bring world class events to live entertainment fans.

The venue is renowned for pushing the envelope with regards to events, which was evident in 2015 with Etihad Stadium hosting AFL, A-League and Big Bash League matches, major concerts featuring One Direction, Foo Fighters and AC/DC as well as an international darts tournament, UFC 193 and the 2015 FIM Speedway Grand Prix.

The versatility of the venue – which has the largest retractable roof in the southern hemisphere, retractable seating on Level 1 and an elaborate curtaining system to create a smaller, more intimate venue within the stadium – allows Etihad Stadium to attract the best events in the world, regardless of genre.

The stadium’s ability to attract the best events in the world is testament to its reputation for seamlessly staging major local and international events for millions of patrons every year.

A venue of such significance requires a ticketing partner that can handle the demands of multi-genre onsales and the operational aspects of getting tens of thousands of patrons into the venue at any given time.

Ticketmaster and Etihad Stadium have enjoyed a wonderful relationship for more than 15 years and we are excited to yet again assist the venue to bring live event fans the very best sports and entertainment events in 2016.
