RX Venue Management says the lockdown-related ban on public gatherings meant the Dome could not fully operate since restrictions came into place last year.

It warned the fate of the Ticketpro Dome is an alarm bell for the events industry.

It's called on government to address the dire situation for businesses in this sector.

Black Coffee, Katy Perry, and Lionel Richie were among the sell-out artists who performed at the venue.
