|Global rock legends Guns N’ Roses will join the high octane charged V8 Supercar Championship Series to combine for a one-off East Coast concert at New South Wales’ premier sporting and entertainment event, the Sydney Telstra 500, at Sydney Olympic Park this December.
V8 Supercars Australia today confirmed it is bringing the famous rockers Down Under this December to headline the heart-thumping ride that is the Sydney Telstra 500. The street race was the biggest single event in NSW in 2009, its inaugural year, when 184,000 walked through the gates.
Guns N’ Roses will be joined by fellow American great Tony Hawk, widely regarded as the world’s greatest skateboarder, at the Sydney Telstra 500 as a great coup for the youth and skate markets. Hawk will have daily shows on Saturday and Sunday at the skate complex at Sydney Olympic Park.
Public tickets go on sale next Monday, July 19, through Ticketek. Prices range from just $91 for a Saturday only ticket including an entire day of action and the Saturday night concert at ANZ Stadium, or a three day pass from just $156, representing incredible value for money. The concert is FREE with any Saturday ticket.
Guns N’ Roses have sold more than 100 million albums worldwide and will headline the Sydney Telstra 500. Last year’s one-show only Cold Chisel concert attracted just under 50,000 fans to ANZ Stadium with Guns N’ Roses already tipped to fill the famous arena.
