Member Alert: Townsville Secures Neil Diamond 2018 Concert

Townsville Enterprise and Stadiums Queensland are proud to announce that Neil Diamond will perform in Townsville in 2018 as a part of his highly successful 50 Year Anniversary World Tour. Townsville is one of three Queensland shows Neil Diamond will play as a part of his world tour, which begun in April 2017 in the U.S.

Neil will perform at 1300SMILES Stadium in Townsville on Tuesday 20 March, with the concert the first of the music legend’s Australian leg of the tour. After kicking off the tour in Townsville, Neil will then perform at the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Sydney, Regional Victoria, Melbourne, the Hunter Valley, Adelaide and Perth.

Stadiums Queensland and one of the world’s most influential event promoters, TEG DAINTY, approached Townsville Enterprise in the early consultation process on why Townsville should host Neil as a part of his Australian tour. TEG DAINTY was recently ranked by Billboard as the fifth largest promoter in the world, touring the likes of Guns N’ Roses, Katy Perry, Rolling Stones, U2, Bon Jovi and many more.

President and CEO of TEG DAINTY, Paul Dainty is thrilled to bring international artists of Neil Diamond’s calibre to Townsville for the very first time and hopes this will be one of many artists he brings to Townsville in years to come.

Paul Dainty is an incredibly successful promoter who has instilled his trust in Townsville to deliver on this event. As a community we must ensure major event organisers have no hesitation in selecting Townsville as regional Australia’s destination of choice to host global entertainment icons. The community holds the key to the success of this event and if promoters believe it is well supported, the potential opportunities are endless for our region.

A Telstra pre-sale starts at 2:00pm on Tuesday 14 November through to 2:00pm Thursday 16 November. Go to for details. Tickets go on sale to the general public at 2:00pm Thursday 16 November via Ticketek.
