Adele, Paul McCartney Tours Power a ‘Record-Breaking Year’ For Live In Australia

Stadium runs by Adele, Paul McCartney, Guns N’ Roses and Justin Biebercontributed to a “record-breaking year” for Australia’s live entertainment business, according to a new report.

After a handful of relatively quiet years, Australia’s concerts business came roaring back in 2017, Live Performance Australia explains in its 2017 Ticket Attendance and Revenue Report, published Thursday.

The business of concerts is powering growth across the entire live sector. In a period when Bruce Springsteen, Drake, Yusuf / Cat Stevens, Ariana Grande and the Dixie Chicks played arenas up and down the country, and homegrown acts Midnight Oil and Sia mounted open-air treks of their own, concerts generated historic levels of ticket sales and revenue, at A$826 million ($584 million), up a whopping 87.7 percent.
