Frontier Touring’s position as the leading promoter in Australasia has been reaffirmed by the Billboard End Of Year Charts, where Frontier ranked third in the world.

During the qualification period (Dec. 2, 2017 to Nov. 17, 2018) Frontier sold 2,768,259 tickets across 440 shows.  Tours across the period encompassed a stellar line-up of artists including Paul McCartney, Sam Smith, Foo Fighters, Harry Styles, RNB Fridays Live, David Byrne, Celine Dion and the record-breaking Ed Sheeran tour.

Frontier is set for another bumper year of tours in 2019, with dates already announced for Bastille, Eagles, Kylie Minogue, Lily Allen, Bryan Ferry, Arctic Monkeys, Norah Jones, Shawn Mendes and many more.

Managing Director of Frontier Touring, Michael Gudinski, said of the achievement,

“Frontier has gone from strength to strength over the past decade and I’m incredibly proud to see us, as an independent promoter exclusive to Australia and New Zealand, playing in the same space as global promoting giants AEG Presents and Live Nation.

“Frontier’s business model has always been an artist and fan-first approach.  We don’t believe in discounting tickets, we fight passionately on behalf of artists and fans against ticket scalping and we don’t believe in price gouging.  They’re not revolutionary concepts but I think those who have toured with us appreciate the way we work and that is ultimately reflected in our results.

“2019 is set to be another incredibly busy year for us and we’ve got some exciting announcements to come.”
