After a long battle the venue was earlier this year granted permission to hold six concerts a year, despite deep divisions in the community about traffic and noise disruptions.

The first concert to be confirmed was New Zealand pop group Six60, scheduled for 24 April.

Now, an international big name has been dropped, as one of the next potential acts.

Eden Trust Board chief executive Nick Sautner appeared before Auckland Council’s Finance and Performance Committee this week. He was asked by mayor Phil Goff whether the stadium could be self-sufficient.

And Saunter’s reply piqued the interested of the councillors: “Obviously there’s commercial sensitivities around each of the events, and it differs from Six60 through to Barbra Streisand, what I will say is our corporate suite interest has been enormous since we’ve announced concerts.”

Sautner avoided further questioning about whether Streisand would in fact be playing at Eden Park.
