Sydney Prepares for Music Royalty in 2013
5 August 2013
Several major superstars will be playing in Australia in mid-to-late 2013. Pink will begin a busy concert season with nearly fifty shows scheduled between June and September. Bon Jovi will be touring stadiums during the summer, while Taylor Swift is the big name on the schedule for December.
Fans of One Direction will likely be seeing the shows that they have been waiting on for over a year. Promoters have also listed Beyonce, Justin Bieber, and The Rolling Stones as possibilities for late 2013 or early 2014.
Sydney remains concerned about the state of the local music scene and a taskforce has been created to attempt to increase the number of live shows in the city. A meeting was held on June 26 to discuss issues related to music venues and what can be done to improve the situation.
Suggestions included adding more live venues and providing fewer regulations for the existing locations to increase the number of concerts held.
