The woman was placed in an induced coma at a nearby hospital, but her death was confirmed today (November 21).
The incident occurred on the first night of the Australian leg of Robbie's XXV world tour.
"Rather than use stairs, the woman attempted to step over seating rows. She lost her footing and fell," said a Venues NSW spokesperson.
"This is a terribly sad incident and our thoughts and wishes are with the patron and their family during this time."
A family friend added to the newspaper: "Robyn was the most beautiful human I have ever met.
"Through all adversity, she smiled, hugged and laughed her way through. Broken hearts amongst all her family and friends, she will be missed by all who knew her."

"Sydney: that was an unforgettable evening, thank you - I love you, Australia," he said on Instagram after the show.
He added: "I'm very lucky to be loved as much as I am *by my audience*. But Sydney was the most I think I’ve ever received. I’ll store it in my heart for the bumpy nights.❤️"
