The special performance took place at the new state-of-the-art venue to a packed house of 8000 fans.

Geoff Donaghy, CEO of ICC Sydney, said the venue will fundamentally change the way events and entertainment are experienced in the city.

“We are thrilled to have had the iconic Keith Urban launch Sydney’s new entertainment hub,” he said. “Their appearance demonstrates the immense pulling power of the venue. Our exceptional facilities have truly set a new industry standard for performers and visitors alike, and we cannot wait for everyone to get a taste of the world class offer we have here.”

Minister for Trade, Tourism, Major Events and Sport Stuart Ayres said ICC Sydney is winning over the world’s event planners and promoters, with the city set to boom thanks to a year round calendar of conventions, exhibitions and concerts within the integrated precinct.

“ICC Sydney is the first venue of its kind in the country and underpins Sydney’s reputation as one of the most desirable destinations in the world,” he said.

“It will help draw some of the most coveted artists to our shores for years to come, and inject over $5 billion into the local economy over the next 25 years. It’s a real game changer.”

Exhibits like The Hunger Games: The Exhibition and Brickman: Wonders of the World will be on display from December 20, and sets from other international singers including PJ Harvey and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are lined up throughout the season.

“With a non-stop parade of hotly anticipated acts set to play at the precinct over the coming months, it’s clear the future of live entertainment in Sydney is bright. This is just the beginning,” said Donaghy.
