Throughout the concert, crowds around the Quay will be dazzled as they gaze upwards to a brilliantly synchronised pyrotechnics display that lights up the summer night sky, showcasing Sydney internationally as a major event and travel destination.
Paying tribute to the Australian spirit, the Sydney Opera House sails will light up during the show with an array of inspirational images that encapsulate the nation and its people.
