Troye Sivan Breaks Two Records on Homecoming Tour of Australia
Troye Sivan made a triumphant -- and record breaking -- return to his neighbourhood earlier this month.
The producer and singer broke a pair of venue records on his first major tour of Australia and New Zealand, which wrapped up Aug. 13 at HBF Stadium in his hometown, Perth.
Sivan’s sold-out show at Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne on Aug. 9 set a highmark for a music concert event at 6,719 ticket sales and his Aug. 11 date at Adelaide’s AEC Theatre established the standard for a music concert event at 2,962 ticket sales.
All shows on the 10-date trek sold out (36,212 tickets sold), according to Michael Gudinski’s Frontier Touring, which presented the Blue Neighbourhood Tour. Gudinski and Frontier Touring tour manager Michael Harrison presented Sivan with a special memento to recognize his achievement (see above).
Sivan, whose Wild EP bowed at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart last September, had previously only played headline shows in Sydney and Perth. Nicole Millar supported on all Australian shows on the most recent run.
Sivan’s Suburbia Tour will move on to Europe for a Sept. 9 stop at Gröna Lund in Stockholm, Sweden, followed by a string of U.S. shows starting Oct. 16 at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.
