Robbie Let Me Entertain You Tour

Pop superstar Robbie Williams will be returning to Australia in October with the “Let Me Entertain You Tour”, performing all the big hits that have defined his dazzling career. Kicking off in Perth on Friday 9th October, he will then head to Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne. The tour will sign off at Sydney’s Allphones Arena on Tuesday 27th October before heading to New Zealand.


Friday 9 October - Perth Arena, Perth

Tuesday 13 October - Entertainment Centre, Adelaide

Saturday 17 October - Entertainment Centre, Brisbane

Thursday 22 October – Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne

Tuesday 27 October - Allphones Arena, Sydney


Robbie Williams was last in Australia in 2014 for “The Swing Tour Live”, which saw him perform to sell-out arenas across the country, delighting fans that had waited eight long years for his return down under. The tour was something of a departure from Robbie’s juggernaut 2006 “Close Encounters World Tour”, which saw the pop superstar perform his biggest hits to over 500,000 Aussies nationally.


This time around Robbie will return to Australia armed with a glittering collection of fan favourites and a handful of unique covers. The aptly-named “Let Me Entertain You Tour” will boast a set-list perfected over a career spanning two decades at the very pinnacle of pop and will include all-time hits Angels, Rock DJ, Better Man and Bodies.  


Visa Entertainment Pre-sale tickets are available to all Visa credit, debit or pre-paid cardholders and can now also be purchased using Visa Checkout. The Visa Entertainment pre­sale starts at 9am Wednesday 20 May until 9am Friday 22 May, or until tickets sell out at www.visaentertainment.com.au.

Tickets to the general public will go on sale 10am Monday 25 May at www.ticketek.com.au or 132 849.

Above & Beyond

Venue:idney Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne
Date:Friday 25th September

Above & Beyond delighted fans when they revealed their annual Group Therapy Radio celebrations (#ABGT150), previously held at New York’s Madison Square Garden and London’s Alexandra Palace, would be heading to Sydney.  Demand for tickets was extraordinary and the event declared a sell out after being on sale for a matter of hours.

"We’re aware that a good number of our Melbourne fans missed out on tickets or couldn't afford to make the journey up to New South Wales for ABGT150,” says Above & Beyond’s Paavo Siljamäki, "and since New Year’s Day at the Sydney Myer Music Bowl was one of our favourite shows of the year, we decided to check with the venue to see if it was available on Friday September 25th.  I'm delighted to say that it is available, so we have booked it for a special ‘We Are All We Need’ album show, the night before ABGT150.”

Hello fellow Atlanteans: we hope you are ready to return to your spiritual birthplace.  Come now, and submerge with us to the bottom of the ocean to visit our long lost island home.  Please dive deep with open mind and heart and prepare to be captivated by a trance state: ATLANTIS.
The lost city will reveal its magic for the first time in recent history to modern Atlanteans, across the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, celebrating the true essence of Atlantean ideals.. Misunderstood, but ultimately progressive, considerate and kind, Atlanteans think not of material possessions, instead striving to advance their soul and spirit.  Friendship, peace and respect were celebrated lovingly, intertwined with music, laughter and dance.  Submerging together to an underwater reunification, the citizens of Atlantis will defy modern concepts and negativity.
Captivated by some of trance’s most loved and rising artists, the ATLANTIS experience will surface in Melbourne on Friday (June 5th) and disappear back into the dark depths after the last Sydney show on Sunday (June 7th). 
Atlanteans need wait until this Thursday for Totem Onelove to reveal the trident-bearing artist lineup.  Expect legends from across the oceans and the next wave of modern Atlantean gods to perform upon the powerful and almighty ATLANTIS coliseum with the production different to all other lands.
Atlanteans and dreamers alike, trapped amongst modern societal woes, rejoice in ATLANTIS, and experience a truly special evening.
ATLANTIS  - A utopian society unified by a love of music, an unbreakable bond that transcends time & space
