Figures released by Dunedin Venues yesterday showed major events at the stadium had together contributed $77 million to the city’s economy last year.
The icing on the cake was country pop star Shania Twain’s concert on December 22 - the last of eight major concerts at the venue in 2018 - which drew a crowd of 17,884 people.
Of those, 61.5% came from outside the city, and together the fans had pumped $5.5 million into the city’s tills.
The concert came after the stadium also hosted Roger Waters, Robbie Williams, Ed Sheeran, Kendrick Lamar and Pink, as well as the All Blacks rugby test against France.
Dunedin Venues chief executive Terry Davies said the major acts - among 218 events held at the stadium during 2018 - made last year a record-breaker at the stadium.
Mr Davies said 2018 was "one out of the box for us and we’re thrilled with the results."
"The team worked extremely hard across all areas of the business and were very proud of the outcomes we have achieved for the stadium and the city."
