Fred again.. caused quite a stir in Sydney yesterday with an unexpected live show at the iconic Sydney Opera House.

The English producer’s show sold out in a flash due to overwhelming demand, with over 120,000 people vying for tickets, causing the Sydney Opera House website to crash temporarily.

Those fortunate enough to snag a rare ticket were in for a treat: a two-hour set, a stripped-down version of his usual extravaganza. Fred hinted, “no lights, one small screen, me, Tony, and maybe the most beautiful venue in the world.”
