The Star Event Centre Hosts Another First, Chris Tucker, In Sold Out Series

June 24, 2013 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

The Star, Sydney’s premier events and entertainment destination, played host to stand up legend and acclaimed Hollywood personality Chris Tucker in three sell-out shows, 17 – 19 June 2013, cementing The Star Event Centre as THE place for events.

DSC_1459_cropped.134957 Having hosted rock concerts, acclaimed singers, award ceremonies, product launches, breakfast plenary sessions and charity functions, to name a few, The Star Event Centre this week held its first series of stand up comedy shows since opening in early 2013.

Arriving on stage to rapturous applause, through a cloud of dry ice, Chris Tucker greeted an audience of over 3000 attendees to The Star Event Centre each night. Chris Tucker hit Australian shores on behalf of Frontier Touring Company for an eight show series, following his critically acclaimed appearance in Silver Linings Playbook.

The Star’s multi-purpose Event Centre was designed with retractable seating, which was rolled out to accommodate the 3000 guests over 3 levels each night with the column-free event space capable of providing clear viewing for guests from all corners of the Event Centre.

As the George P. Johnson Australia team commented, “We had a great night watching Chris Tucker in The Star Event Centre. The room looked first class – the use of the space was fantastic, it really felt like we were in a comedy theatre with everyone having a great view of him on stage. The service throughout the show was also outstanding; we’re really looking forward to using The Star Event Centre in the future.”


Chris Tucker’s celebrity filled audience at The Star Event Centre included the NSW State of Origin team, The South Sydney Rabbitohs team and Justin Melvey from Days of Our Lives.

The Star Event Centre cementing its position as a world class multi-purpose event and entertainment venue, will host International music legend Engelbert Humperdinck, 10 July 2013; the 2013 Australian Independent Music Awards, 7 November 2013 and Olly Murs, 9 November 2013.
