To mark their commitment to one of Melbourne’s most iconic venues and celebrate an enduring partnership, AAMI is bringing one of Australia’s biggest stars, Amy Shark, to perform live at an exclusive, money-can’t-buy event at AAMI Park on Friday 11th February 2022.

Amy Shark will perform some of her most loved songs, under the stars and on the field at AAMI Park, to an intimate audience of just 1,000 people. Tickets to this exclusive event can be won through the AAMI Lucky Club customer loyalty program, plus limited competition tickets available to the wider public through AAMI’s Facebook Page.

“I’m so excited to stage a special solo acoustic performance in Melbourne to celebrate the renewal of AAMI’s naming rights partnership with AAMI Park. I can’t wait to bring live music back to the venue after a long hiatus and I would love for you to join me, Amy Shark, live at AAMI Park, after dark on the 11th February!” – Amy Shark

Lisa Harrison, Suncorp CEO Insurance Products & Portfolio said the renewed naming rights sponsorship of Melbourne’s premier sporting venue until 2026 demonstrates AAMI’s ongoing commitment to the Victorian community. “We’re delighted to be extending our partnership with AAMI Park and look forward to being part of its future as it reopens and brings people together again. “Through this ongoing partnership with AAMI Park, we can’t wait to bring some joy to Victorians as the stands fill up again. Live entertainment has been one of the hardest hit industries during COVID, particularly in Melbourne, so it’s exciting to be part of one of the first live music events on the 2022 calendar,” Ms Harrison said.

“Supporting Victoria is really important for AAMI, whether it be sport, arts or road safety. We’re committed to continuing to back Victoria and our renewed partnership with AAMI Park will help us build an even stronger presence here.”

Melbourne & Olympic Parks Chief Executive Officer John Harnden AM reflected on over a decade of partnership with AAMI, while looking forward to seeing the stadium continue to thrive under the AAMI brand.

“Since 2010, AAMI Park has become one of Australia’s most loved and renowned sporting and entertainment venues. With the support of AAMI, AAMI Park continues to be a prominent brand and venue on our Precinct.

The Trust are pleased to continue our strong partnership with AAMI, and look forward creating many more memorable moments at the Stadium together.”

Not one to slow down, 2020 saw Amy release her ARIA award winning, platinum accredited single, ‘Everybody Rise’, which is nearing 34 million streams globally and spent 12 weeks in the top 10 Australian airplay chart. Amy’s latest album, CRY FOREVER was her second #1 ARIA debut holding the top spot for two weeks consecutively. Shark teamed up with blink 182’s Travis Barker on Gold accredited single ‘C’MON’ and global superstar Ed Sheeran to co-write platinum single ‘Love Song’s Ain’t For Us’ featuring Grammy award winning artist Keith Urban.
