The demolition of the QEII stadium
Thu, 16 Aug 2012 7:00p.m.
You name it; they’ve played it at QEII: cricket, water polo, diving, and greyhound racing. David Bowie played there too, and AC/DC, and the first concert Campbell Live reporter Jendy Harper ever attended - Split Enz in January 1984.
She was also there a decade earlier for the Commonwealth Games. It was of course, for the Commonwealth Games the QEII stadium was built - and now it is being pulled apart.
Since it was damaged in the February 2011 earthquake, no TV cameras have been allowed inside the complex until we were given permission to film a final tour.
So final in fact, that just a few minutes after Jendy and cameraman Christie Douglas left QEII, the demolition team moved in.
Watch the video to see the final tour.
