Billy Joel Melbourne Concert Is Officially A Sell-Out

by Paul Cashmere on July 6, 2022

in News

Billy Joel’s one-off Australian show at Melbourne MCG in December sold 71000 tickets officially making it a sell-out

The event is a huge win for the Victorian Government who are promoting the show as part of Always Live with Frontier Touring. 52% of ticket sales came from people outside Melbourne, 42% of the ticket sales were from interstate, which was exactly the result the Victorian Government was after.

The Billy Joel tour is a state government initiative to bring tourism dollars into Victoria.

Minister for Tourism and Major Events Steve Dimopoulos said, “Another sold out major event is great news for Victoria – it will support businesses and jobs in our creative, tourism and hospitality industries.

“More than half of ticket buyers will come from outside of Melbourne for this one-night only experience, reinforcing the importance of the state’s major events calendar as a drawcard for visitors.”

The event is now considered a sell-out.
