Mother’s Day Wish List with Qudos Bank Arena

Mother’s Day is approaching, and while it’d be all-too easy to gift our mums the obvious bouquet of flowers or hundredth pair of pyjamas, the best presents are experience-based. Attending the concert of your mother’s favourite artist or sitting alongside them during a stand-up comedy set is infinitely more memorable than a new pair of socks, which is why Qudos Bank Arena has your Mother’s Day wish list sorted come the 12 of May. 

From the long-awaited return of 90s boy band favourites to the killer sets from the world’s starriest comedians, here’s all the Qudos Bank Arena events that would make perfect gifts this Mother’s Day. Earn ultimate brownie points with ticket’s to an upcoming event in the list below. 

Jerry Seinfeld

Parents the world over look back fondly on Seinfeld, the global juggernaut of a show that defined the 90s and made a star out of the eponymous comic. Now, Jerry Seinfeld will return to audiences following his sold-out Australian shows in 2017, bringing the laughs with a show at Qudos Bank Arena on 16 June 2024. Seinfeld’s brand of observational comedy, spanning the quirks of married life to the hilarity of parenthood, is sure to win over parents this Mother’s Day. Find event and ticketing details here.
