She’s also scheduled for Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on Monday March 7, then Adelaide on Thursday March 10, finishing up on Perth’s Burswood Dome on Saturday March 12.

So called big names dont attract me to Mardi Gras.

Sure if I happen to be in the right spot at the right time they are generally a hoot
but no way do I spend an hour of my night crammed into a hall for someone supposedly coming on at 2am but they dont till 2:30 or 3 etc and they do 1 song maybe 2. All over in 10-15mins.

I go for the music and so long as the styles I like are being played I will be there.

Rihanna is awful live.

Epic fail!!

What's the point of paying a celebrity all of that money to sing one song? If a celebrity is going to make an appearance, have at least a 30 min set. Rather than 3 or 4 celebrities, make it one. Have them play the RHI between 1am and 2am. I'm sure it'll cut down costs which in turn could cut the cost of tickets to the event.
