Country superstar Keith Urban and Australian heavyweights Amy Shark and John Butler will be the first to perform at Sydney’s newest live music venue, Sydney Coliseum Theatre, when it opens this year.
The Rooty Hill-based venue, to open on 21 December, has already seen tens of thousands join a pre-sale waitlist for its opening night.
“Today’s announcement heralds for West HQ our vision to be the leading landmark destination for entertainment, fitness, lifestyle, and accommodation in the Western Sydney region,” West HQ CEO Richard Errington said.
“Our new Sydney Coliseum Theatre will be a magnificent world-class facility, fit for world-class performers, and our opening line-up is proof of that.”
Urban and Butler will also perform solo shows following the opening, while other names confirmed to play Sydney Coliseum Theatre include Tina Arena and Dame Edna.
“Our Opening Program Week is just the first step in putting the genius and creativity of the Australian entertainment industry on the global cultural map; an achievement Greater Western Sydney can call its own and be truly proud of,” Errington said.
General public tickets for all shows go on sale from midday AEST on Tuesday 6 August.
