Keith Urban First Artist to Headline ICC Sydney Theatre

International music icon, Keith Urban, will be the first artist to headline International Convention Centre Sydneys (ICC Sydney) entertainment theatre on 14 December 2016.

The special performance will take place at the ICC Sydney Theatre, part of Sydneys premier business and entertainment events precinct in Darling Harbour.

Featuring an innovative fan-shaped design which brings audiences closer to the stage and provides unobstructed views for all, the 8,000-seat (9,000 capacity) venue promises an extraordinary entertainment experience for visitors.

We are thrilled to have a famous Australian icon launch what will be one of the nations leading entertainment venues. ICC Sydney Theatre will provide visitors with an unparalleled experience and is just one of our premium entertainment venues within the integrated precinct which will host a year-round calendar of events including major concerts, comedy shows, theatrical performances and more, said Geoff Donaghy, CEO of ICC Sydney. The concert will mark ICC Sydneys arrival on the citys cultural radar and put us front and centre on the nations main stage.

The Hon. Stuart Ayres MP, Minister for Trade, Tourism, Major Events and Sport, said that as Australias first fully-integrated convention, exhibition and entertainment centre, ICC Sydney will further emphasise Sydney as one of the worlds most desirable business and leisure destinations.

ICC Sydney is the centrepiece of the AU$3.4 billion, 20-hectare transformation of Darling Harbour and will help draw people from around the world to the city. Its seamless integration, stunning architecture and unique facilities will create a focal point for the area, which is only a moment's walk from the CBD, Barangaroo, local universities, Sydney Harbour Bridge and The Sydney Opera House. The announcement of Keith Urban as ICC Sydney Theatres first headline act shows the immense pulling power of the venue and the team behind it, which will help boost tourism and the economy, he said.
