Forsyth Barr has started the year off on the right foot after hosting more than 50,000 music fans at two concerts in March.
Dunedin Venues Management Limited (DVML) revealed today that the Eagles concert on March 2 and the Six60 show seven days later brought in $16million to the local economy.
Of the 50,000 people who attended the two shows 27,453 were from out of town.
Fleetwood Mac would also be making a return to play in Dunedin on September 21 after previously injecting $10.1m into the region after performing at the stadium in November 2015.
Forsyth Barr played host to eight concerts last year and DVML chief executive Terry Davies is optimistic about what is to come.
"The support from the region through high tickets sales has been outstanding and gives very positive signals to promoters for future concerts. With two concerts already on the calendar for February next year and Fleetwood Mac still to come this year, we are feeling very positive,” Mr Davies said.
Earlier this year, Elton John announced his farewell tour would include a repeat visit to Forsyth Barr Stadium on February 4, 2020 and Queen and Adam Lambert perform the following week on February 10.
