Here’s what we got up to in June!

Bublé Brilliance Back On Display At RAC Arena

Despite nursing an illness, Michael Bublé was his usual impressive self when he came to town on June 5th. His show was packed with comedic one liner’s, effortlessly cool vocals, smooth moves, and an equally impressive musical ensemble for what was Buble’s third visit to RAC Arena over the years. It was well worth the wait too for those that ventured out on the WA Day Public Holiday, coming to the concert after it was rescheduled from it’s original date in December last year.

Thanks for coming, Michael!

Fever Fall Short In Prelim Final Thriller

After another impressive year, the West Coast Fever have fallen agonisingly short of securing a spot in the SSN Grand Final after being handed a 1-point defeat at the hands of the NSW Swifts in the Preliminary Final. Consequently, the Fever won’t be able to defend last year’s championship but will be looking to come back in 2024, stronger than ever before.

This year couldn’t have been possible without the support of the Green Army across the seven home and away games and one final held at RAC Arena. We look forward to welcoming you all back next year!

Venue Record The Icing On The Cake After A Magical Weekend For Disney On Ice

For the first time since 2019, Disney on Ice returned to RAC Arena with nine shows across four huge days throughout June. The fresh, new show featured plenty of skating, performing, and even some acrobatics from everyone’s favourite Disney friends.

Disney on Ice: 100 Years of Wonder also broke the venue record for the highest number of tickets issued for a Disney on Ice performance when 9,575 tickets were issued for the Sunday 2pm session. The previous record was held by DOI: Princesses & Heroes, way back in July 2013. Until next time, Disney!

Celebrating Banks The Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo This World Mascot Day

June marked one year since the WA public voted for Banks the Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo to be the official mascot of RAC Arena. To celebrate the occasion, and in line with World Mascot Day, we wanted to get to know a little more about the loveable creatures, so we ventured out to the Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre in the Perth hills.

You can take a look at what we got up to at Kaarakin, with Rickeeta from Aboriginal Productions in the video below.
