The actual concert i went to was fantastic. However the venue not the best.Was in block 16 seat s i wished i had worn my parachute for safety. The stairs up to my seat was really really steep and the hand rail disappears leaving you feeling very vulnerable going up and down.Some poor folk really struggled and i felt sorry... More

Last night was very disappointing. We were in seats M on the balcony and could not clearly hear any of her songs. The sound was distorted. Even songs we knew were hard to follow. This is the last time we will use this venue.

Couldn't fault the staff all very friendly polite and efficient. Wish we had a venue like this in Leicester. The show was fantastic and although we were on the floor seats the view was pretty good and the big screens obviously helped. Looking forward to going again

Went to watch an Elton John concert at the Arena. Fantastic show. However the food and drinks concessions were the worst managed I have ever seen at an event. Hugely overpriced, untrained staff and constant panic and disorganisation as the stalls continually ran out of product even with low demand and before the event started. Dreadful quality and pricing that... More

What a buzz!! Im not a fan of wrestling but this was a fantastic evening. My 8 year old son was swept up by the atmosphere in the place. This is not just for fans, the wrestlers really work the crowd. Only downside is make sure you got money to spend as there is loads of merchandise that the kids... More

I took my Mum here for her 60th pressie to see this show. She was kept in the dark until we came into the stadium and she saw the ice arena at the bottom. The penny dropped and couldn't believe her luck. The show was beyond anything I could have hoped for. I've only watch dancing on ice here and... More

Saw Nine Inch Nails here and it was a good show. Of course, most of this was down to the act playing and the gear they brought with them, but the venue itself was good. Easily reached with bars and the usual amenities dotted around the place.

Went to see Nine Inch Nails during the bank holiday. The tickets were picked up easily, we were ushered through the turnstiles with minimum fuss, drink prices were reasonable and we found our seats quickly. The acoustics were fantastic and people were able to disperse from the immediate area quickly and without incident. A pleasurable and fuss-free experience.
