This Homebush entertainment arena is the largest indoor entertainment and sporting venue in Australia. While it's known as the 'Sydney Superdome', it's currently called the Qudos Bank Arena, and was formerly known at the Acer and Allphones Arena. It boast some pretty awesome sound and lighting, plus stall views provide a decent view from right around the arena. If you want primo spots opt for one of the corporate boxes or book tickets down on the right front hand side.

What’s on

Jonas Brothers

  • Pop

Hear that? It’s the sound of JoBros fans and anyone who was raised on a diet of the Disney Channel in the noughties firing up the group chat because Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas are officially coming to Australia in March, 2024.  Yes, the beloved boy band that we’re all a sucker for is hitting up Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena on March 2 and 3 for two exclusive concerts, before heading to Brisbane and Melbourne. It’s all part of the Five Albums. One Night. tour and marks the very first time that the Jonas Brothers will perform in Australia. Wild, right? We can’t believe it either. In case you needed a little refresher on just how successful the trio is, here’s a reminder: the Jonas Brothers have sold more than 20 million albums, scored two Grammy Award nominations, logged three consecutive number one debuts on the Billboard 200 and generated billions of streams. That’s a lot of people listening to ‘Waffle House’. You can expect to hear all the big hits from their five albums on the tour, including ‘Only Human’, ‘Cool’, ‘Sucker’, ‘What A Man Gotta Do’ and (our personal fave for nostalgic reasons) ‘Burnin’ Up’. Vodaphone customers can secure tickets during a pre-sale that will kick off at 11am on August 4, while the Live Nation pre-sale will commence at 12pm on August 7. All general public tickets will go on sale August 8 at 1pm via the Live Nation website. Now excuse us while we go crank the ‘This Is Jonas Brothers’ playlist on Spotify.

Aqua '90s Tour

  • Pop

Come on Barbie, let’s go party, because Euro-pop icons Aqua are headed Down Under for their first Australian concert since 2018. You won’t want to miss this nostalgic trip back to the raddest era of them all – the ’90s – also featuring special guests 2 Unlimited, East 17, Phats and Small, Big Brovaz, Booty Luv and Urban Cookie Collective. The party will turn Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena upside down on Sunday, March 24, following shows in Brisbane and Melbourne. The bands will then take their beats to Adelaide Entertainment Centre on March 26 and round out their tour at Perth’s RAC Arena on March 28. Dress like you’re about to star in an MTV music video – neon scrunchies and slap bracelets are mandatory – and get jiggy with it to Aqua’s smash hits, including ‘Barbie Girl,’ ‘Doctor Jones’ and ‘Lollipop (Candyman)’.  Aqua will be bringing along their best mates from the ’90s, so obviously, you should too. Together, you can raise the roof to club anthems from Belgian-Dutch electronic dance duo 2 Unlimited, English pop boy band with all the swagger East 17, and UK R&B hip-hop heavyweights Big Brovas. Also joining them are British dance divas Booty Luv, electronic dance duo Phats and Small, and Eurodance group Urban Cookie Collective. Tickets to this unforgettable throwback tour are available via pre-sale at 10am AEDT on Tuesday, January 23. You can also try your shot in the general ticket sale at 10am AEDT on Thursday, January 25 here. Want more?  Here are the best bars and pubs to

Marvel Universe Live

Unless you've been living under a rock (or at least, haven't set foot in one of Sydney's cinemas), you'll know that the Marvel movie franchise has taken the world by storm in recent years. Its extensive roll call of beloved heroes has cultivated a passionate fandom across the globe, and now there's an exciting new way for Aussie Marvel fans to get their super-powered fix, other than the silver screen.  After sold-out tours across the United States, Latin America and Europe, it’s finally Australia’s turn to host Marvel Universe Live. The production was originally planned to arrive on Aussie shores in 2020, but because of that pesky pandemic, it was cancelled and we missed out. The eye-popping, cutting-edge arena spectacular is packed with death-defying stunts, high-octane special effects, immersive video projections and more Marvel characters – in the flesh – than you can sling a web at. Without a single pixel of computer-generated imagery, your favourite Marvel heroes like Iron Man, Thor, Spider Man, Doctor Strange and Black Widow, as well as the Guardians of the Galaxy, all rub shoulders on stage in one epic show. And because every hero needs a villain (or several), you can expect action-packed battles as the heroes unite to fight against the evil Nebula, Loki and Green Goblin. The show is aimed at Marvel lovers of all ages and promises to be every bit as thrilling as its cinematic counterparts, supercharging the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney from Friday, April 19 to Monday, Ap

SZA Sydney S.O.S Tour

In major news for R’n’B fans across Australia, the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter SZA has just announced the dates for the Australian leg of her S.O.S Tour – she’ll be taking over Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena for two consecutive dates in April. When is SZA in Sydney?  SZA will be taking over the Qudos Bank Arena on April 23 and April 24 2024, before heading to Melbourne. How can I get tickets to the Sydney SZA show and what are SZA ticket prices for Sydney?   The ticket pre-sale will start on Friday, February 9 via Ticketek – with prices yet to be confirmed. The general sale will begin on Monday, February 12 (2pm local time), with a limit of 10 tickets available per transaction. What will SZA concerts in Australia be like? Few details have been released about what Sydneysiders can expect from the show, but based on previous shows on her S.O.S. Tour – which has taken the artist through Europe, America and Canada – we’re expecting something pretty special. SZA’s shows have been described by The New York Times as "vigorous, confident, theatrical and intimate.” We'd expect nothing less. Who will the Sydney SZA support acts be? The support acts for SZA’s Sydney show are yet to be announced, but special performances at previous shows have included angelic vocalist Phoebe Bridgers, Cardi B, Summer Walker and Lizzo – so we’ve got our fingers crossed for some similarly epic girl power to take to the stage.Keep tabs on updates over here.   Want more?

Take That and Sophie Ellis-Bextor Sydney

In news that is causing nineties music fans Sydney-wide to tremble in their Reeboks, the English pop group Take That (the band that launched Robbie Williams, who were responsible for some of the most impossibly catchy ballads of the decade, including Back for Good) have announced they’ll be performing in Sydney later this year. And the best bit? They’re bringing Sophie Ellis-Bextor – the powerhouse behind the comeback song of the summer Murder on the Dancefloor – along with them.  Take That and Sophie Ellis-Bextor's Australian leg of This Life On Tour will take them from the Barossa Valley to Queensland’s Mount Cotton – with Ricki-Lee even joining them for the Hunter Valley show, and additional guests still to be announced.
