Suncorp Stadium to bring further boost to local economy

By James Brown

An extensive public consultation has been held in Queensland, and members of the community have voted overwhelmingly in favour of plans to bring more major events to the Suncorp Stadium.

Previously, only four concerts could be held at the venue each year, but this will now be increased to six. This is expected to bring a significant boost to the local economy, by enticing more visitors and creating jobs for those living in the area.

"When I launched the public consultation exercise in April I said hosting stars like U2, Foo Fighters and Taylor Swift helped to raise Brisbane's international profile and brought significant economic benefits," noted Minister for Sport and Racing Bill Byrne.

Mr Byrne revealed that nearly 80 per cent of those responding to the consultation believed that they would receive a better entertainment experience when they visited Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium. Promoters had imposed the four-concert cap back in 2006 and some artists have been turned away as a result of this limit.

Attention will now turn to what measures can be taken to ensure the concerts can take place without causing too much disruption. It is hoped that local tourism and businesses will be able to reap the benefits of the increased footfall that is created once the details have been finalised.

Earlier this year, Suncorp Stadium launched an interactive application on its website that enables sports match and concert-goers to see what the view will be like from their seats. By accessing the Your Seats page, ticket holders can determine how good a view they will have of the field.
