During Michael Bublé’s whistle-stop Australian tour he played only three shows – a Sunrise concert in Sydney’s Martin Place, a one-off stadium show to close Allianz Stadium and smoothfm’s Feel Good Night show for just 400 people at Sydney’s Seymour Centre.
Even though Bublé was playing for a small crowd in an intimate space, he didn’t skimp on the presentation, bringing his complete 26-piece orchestra to the Seymour Centre stage.
