Record breaker

Noble shifts 20,000 tickets

Ross Noble has broken box office records at the Melbourne festival.

His show, Noodlemeister, has sold out the full festival run, shifting more than 20,000 tickets at the Athenaeum Theatre and claiming daily sales records along the way.

Demand has been such that Noble, a festival favourite since collecting the Barry award in 2002, has added an extra Melbourne date.

He will now play the Arts Centre’s Hamer Hall on Tuesday April 19, with tickets going on sale from 9am on Friday.

Noble, who has been based in Australia for several months, will then continue touring the country until June. After that, he is expected to tour the UK.
