Adele says “Hello” to Brisbane at the Gabba!

The Gabba played host to Adele’s first Brisbane concert and the QC Club unveiled their newly refurbished venue to their members and guests.  It was a spectacular night enjoyed by all, with most staying on long after the concert had finished enjoying more dancing, drinks and canapes.

For those who wanted to make it an extra special evening we created special areas in the Champagne Lounge and Glass Viewing Room which included a canape and drinks package throughout the evening.


The Adele event hosted by the Club was sensational. The entry & exit from the club was extremely smooth , seating great, catering inside fantastic & the band after really ended the night off well. It really made our night. Well done!!!

– Adrianne Jones


It was a spectacular and most memorable night. Thank you all very much. Everyone at the Club was amazing, as usual. You all did a stellar job, especially considering the short turn around time from the remodelling handover.  Thank you so much and see you soon.

What an absolutely fantastic night we had at Adele with you all on Saturday! We can not thank you enough for organising the tickets, and for your very well informed emails leading up to the event. What an amazing experience it was, thank you. It was very generous of you to include us with all with your other guests. We have to mention too, that we were blown away by the venue – absolutely outstanding! I am not a fan of concerts and large venues, but to do it this way was just incredible. The Cricketer’s Club area was also just superb – that food was incredibly fresh and delicious! And to be able to buy our Moet by the bottle was just the best! We came away with the biggest smiles on our faces after enjoying such a wonderful evening with superb food, company and Adele of course!!

I would like to congratulate you and the Club more generally for what was a superb evening at Adele on Sunday night last. I thought the organisation in advance and on the night was fabulous. The Club did very well. I had my wife and 3 of my daughters there and it just could not have been better.

I just wanted to thank you for all that you did towards us being able to attend the Adele concert. Our seats were terrific. The whole show was just a quality production. A memorable evening for us. For us from start to finish the evening ran like clockwork. The best experience ever. Well done and “Thank you” again.

– John and Shirley Byrnes


On another note congratulations to all of your staff on what must have been a crazy weekend there. I attended the Adele concert on Saturday night (I think someone looked after me and my guests with great seats thank you very much) and we had a blast. It’s hard not to when Adele performs, but the club seemed to run smoothly, considering you were at full capacity and I’m sure all of your guests took that into account when queuing for food or drink which was only for a short time anyway, and to be expected with those numbers. The refurbishment is looking fantastic and I can’t wait to show it off to our Sandgate-Redcliffe Cricket Club members on April 13th. Once again well done to all the QCC staff. I hope you are all having a well-deserved rest today!

I just wanted to pop you a quick e-mail and thank you both very much for the wonderful night that Steven and I had at Adele last night! We thoroughly enjoyed Adele and your newly refurbished club, is wonderful! The security were on top of everything and very professional too! Thanks again for your assistance with our tickets – Paula Myler

Congratulations to you and the entire team at QC Club on pulling off an exceptional event at your shiny new venue last night.
We had a great time, the food, service and overall experience were brilliant. The venue is looking sensational and you have managed to transition and reopen for the biggest event of the year without any noticeable hitch.
I know what a mean feat this must have been behind the scenes. Ka pai (well done) to you all and thanks for taking such good care of myself and our Air New Zealand guests last night.

Good Morning all QCC. management and staff. Just a short note to express my thanks for the wonderful way the Adele concert was handled by everyone involved. Having been a member of the QCC for nigh on 38 years I can say that Sunday night was one of the best evenings I have experienced in the club. From my point of view, every detail went very smoothly and the choice of food items from the cafe was excellent. Notwithstanding that I am a member of the club mainly for the cricket, I can only say that if any more such concerts are staged at the Gabba I will certainly be very interested. Once again, thank you
