The event is already scheduled for five performances at the Melbourne venue with the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo set to perform on Friday February 12 (7pm), two performances on Saturday February 13 (1pm and 7pm) and in the evening of Sunday February 14.

It seems Victorian and Australian fans cannot get enough of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo with tickets to the fifth show expected to be snapped up when they go on sale.

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is a spectacular large-scale event that will take place on the Etihad Stadium oval in front of tens of thousands of people. The stadium’s retractable seating on Level 1 will be used to create a rectangular seating configuration around the performance. The retractable seating allows patrons on Level 1 to get much closer to the action and almost feel like they are genuinely a part of the show.

And Etihad Stadium’s famous retractable roof will ensure the show will go on uninterrupted regardless of the weather.

Ticketmaster and Etihad Stadium have been extremely proud and overwhelmed at the huge demand for tickets for the first four shows. The announcement of a fifth show is testament to the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo’s immense reputation throughout the world.

The upcoming performances will be the first time the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo has been performed in Melbourne. More than 1200 performers will be on hand to create a truly spectacular sea of colour, precision, atmosphere and excitement.

The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo attracts the best massed pipes and drums and the shows in Melbourne will feature international acts, including leading military bands from the UK, as well as local bands representing the Australian Defence Forces.

The first Edinburgh Tattoo took place in 1950 and since that time more than 14 million people have attended a performance. In that time, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo has travelled overseas just three times, appearing in Wellington, New Zealand in 2000 and in Sydney in 2005 and 2010.

The rarity for the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo to travel abroad makes its visit to Melbourne even more precious. The opportunity to see the incredible show will no doubt appeal to Melburnians and Victorians as well as people from interstate and overseas.
