“The entire community here is excited and at the same time ready to represent at ‘ASAP Live in Sydney’”, said ABS-CBN Australia Country Manager Jay Santos. “It is going to be an amazing time and experience for us in Australia, particularly in the state of New South Wales where most of the Filipinos in the country live. With ‘ASAP Live in Sydney’, Filipinos are celebrating their presence and injecting their unique, delightful cultural flavors that add to Sydney becoming a must-visit destination city at this time of the year.”
The ICC Sydney Theatre is the latest among the world-class venues that ASAP Live is performing in, after sold-out shows in Singapore, Dubai, Los Angeles, London, New York, Toronto, and Honolulu.
It is part of the new $1.5-billion International Convention Centre Sydney complex, Australia's first and largest fully integrated convention, exhibition and entertainment center. Itis a monster technology job: it has 1,000 access points plumbed into a 10Gbit network. So, forget about wi-fi issues; the complex IS connected. Moreover, inside the theatre, every one of the venue’s seats is focused on the center of the stage, and a fan-shaped vertical seating layout ensures an optimal view from every seat in the house.
Moreover, ICC Sydney Theatre is in the heart of Darling Harbour, a splendid waterside location in Sydney which ticks off all the destination boxes: marvelous aquarium and zoo, great dining options, funky nightclubs, wine bars, bistros, shopping centers, ferries and cruises, the world’s largest cinema screen, laser skirmish and tenpin bowling, museums and parks, among a rich buffet of attractions.
And “ASAP Live in Sydney” will surely be among the area’s world-class entertainment offerings this October.
