joker97: You guys have nothing on Dunedin.

They built a stadium that we can only just afford to pay the interest on the costs. And that's with some clever rates rise.

 

 

 

Although arguably it is the best rugby stadium in NZ. But the ultimate of white elephants IMO. They need to make these stadiums multi use, so they can be used all the time. eg build offices around them. They seem to be more successful with building and managing stadiam overseas.

Larger population helps overseas. They don't have enough population in dunedin to fill their existing shops & offices, so new ones are really not needed.

Dunedin stadium has provided the opportunity for the public to watch many concerts they would arguably not had without it.
Not my cup of tea, but Neil Diamond, Elton John, Fleetwood mac, probably more (these are ones my folks have gone to)

Events like the crusty demons.

But I don't pay rates in Dunedin. :)
