BENEE – ‘Never Ending’

“The Finals Festival will be an incredible way to wrap up what is shaping up as a spectacular AO23,” Australian Open Tournament Director Craig Tiley said in a statement. “It’s an exciting new initiative for the AO, which has always led the way with music and entertainment alongside the world-class tennis. The Finals Festival also gives us the opportunity to showcase our newest stadium, Kia Arena, in a unique new way.”

Tickets for each Finals Fest event will be $34 on their own. Alternatively, fans who buy either a ground pass or Rod Laver Arena stadium ticket for any of the three days can upgrade to enter the Kia Arena for an additional $5. Find more information and purchase tickets here.
