Eminem Smashes Attendance Records

Eminem Smashes Attendance Records at Wellington’s Westpac Stadium with Over 46,474 Fans at His Rapture Show Tonight!


Eminem’s massive RAPTURE 2019 show at Wellington’s Westpac Stadium tonight with 46,474 fans in the audience, has not only eclipsed the attendance record previously held by the Robbie Williams concert in 2001, but also sets the record for the largest ever audience for a single-day event at the stadium.

Paul Dainty, Promoter, President and CEO of TEG DAINTY, who scheduled this concert into Wellington, said “It is an outstanding achievement for Eminem to break the live concert attendance record at Westpac Stadium with a total of 46,474 fans in the audience. Eminem is one of the greatest showmen in the world with a fiercely loyal fan base that continues to grow with each tour. He is no stranger to selling out stadium shows but he is continuing to break attendance records across both New Zealand and Australia, which is just phenomenal.”

Across Australasia, Eminem’s 2019 RAPTURE TOUR has sold a total north of 300,000 tickets to his five stadium shows, including Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and the one New Zealand show in Wellington.

Westpac Stadium Chief Executive Shane Harmon said “We are thrilled to have hosted an international artist of this calibre in Wellington and deliver a smooth event for this record-breaking crowd. It’s certainly a night to remember.”

Eminem’s 2019 RAPTURE tour not only set the record for the fastest ever sell-out concert at Westpac Stadium but also for the highest percentage of ticket purchasers from outside the Wellington region, with 56 percent of the crowd travelling for the event. Those 25,000 visitors also set a new record for a single-day event for Wellington.

Eminem’s previous New Zealand visit for 2014’s RAPTURE TOUR thrilled another sold-out stadium audience at Auckland’s iconic Western Springs, noted as being the stadium’s fastest selling show ever and having the largest audience seen at the Springs since the 1980’s, with over 55,000 in attendance.
