This was a great show at the Concert Hall. The hall itself is a wonderful arena with uninterrupted views from every seat. The sound and acoustics are marvellous too. The bars are always busy but fully staffed and it's easy to get a drink. Although it's best that you order your 'half time'' drink before you go into the show.... More

Fantastic atmosphere particularly when the house is nearly full. Carlos Nunez is a great showman and his concerts are lively and very polished and professional

This was the most amazing venue to go see a concert. Never been there before and to be honest didn't even know it existed. It was not too big and not small either, but the sound was incredible.

This is a lovely building, spacious, light, and an oasis away from the busy city, right at the top of Sauchihall street, the auditaurium is huge, but not over powering. There is a good Cafe. We came to see The Johan Stauss Concert, pure magic,

The Royal Concert Hall is a lovely hall with an impressive seat layout and great acoustics. However, the venue fails badly in a number of respects: It is barely accessible to disabled people (the web site claim that, 'All our auditoriums are fully accessible to those with mobility difficulties' is untrue); the only way to obtain even very basic food...

Although our home is in Aberdeen, we have travelled to Glasgow two or three times per year ( over the past 30 years) to take advantage of the superior shopping and entertainment opportunities - and, the GRCH is one of the "jewels in the Crown" Have been to many concerts here of all varieties ( but, in particular, the RSNO),...
