Just been to see Sarah Millican at the Music Hall - great venue and a fun show. Aberdeen is very lucky to have a spot like this that is so versatile and able to present everything from rock concerts to opera in such a comfortable spot.

Went to see Avenue Q here when it was on and the venue was very cosy, I would definitely go back to see something being put on there, although some folk appeared not to get seats moments before the show so that was a bit awkward and there was no parking nearby but other than that great sound and good...

The Restaurant consists of a few tables and chairs inside a (has been at one time) beautiful circular and domed... More

Mostly I attend the Music Hall for orchestral concerts. The acoustic is fine, the decor pleasing to the eye. The seating is comfortable enough. It's a good venue which serves its purpose.

The Music Hall is a great venue to see a comedian or whatever you are into, the sound and view is good from most corners, but I would advise choosing a balcony seat.

I have been to many different types of show at the music hall; while gigs are usually good, some comedy shows I've seen have been of poor sound quality. Although I saw Jason Manford last month and it was very clear so maybe it's just dodgy microphones ;)

How very nice that one of Britain's music halls has been retained, and maintained so very well. Immaculately in fact. The stalls seating is removable, but quite comfortable, presumably to allow for a multitude of uses, and the wrap around circle, which we did not visit, looked great from where we were sitting. We went to see the Hollies. Only... More

Its not the most comfortable of seating, but we were there for a Dublin Legends concert (some of The Dubliners) so it was small enough to feel like a good folk club. Even though it is an old building, the sound quality was good, the ambience was nice, and my hubby tells me the bar was excellent. The ladies loo... More

This was our first visit to the music hall its a lovely old building with character. our seats were upstairs at the very back so couldn't hear very well. There was a vent underneath our seat that cold air and an awful smell came out of all through the show that spoiled the night

This music hall is in the centre of the city. It is the sweetest music hall I have been to. We went to see Nicola Benedetti and sat upstairs at the back, but that did not take away any of the experience. It is a beautiful old building, lovingly restored and going there feels like a good night out.
