Other arenas (like London) you... More

I have visited this arena a few times to see Snow Patrol, Peter Kay and this weeked Johnny Mathis. I find the staff to be excellent and I never mind they check my bag as it's what they have to do. They are always helpful and try to get you to your your seats by the easiest route. The only... More

This is my first ever one star review as I think to give a 1 or a 5, well it has to be very very bad or just absolutely amazing. Went there with my girlfriend to watch Back Street Boys and at the door my girlfriend was asked to open her bag, because they wanted to check for food or... More

Justin Timberlake was amazing, couldn't fault him and he was worth the journey to see him. The venue needs serious TLC. Unless you have a head for heights don't bother because even the lower tier induces vertigo, and when the lights go out its every man and women for themselves...take a torch.The greeter put us in the wrong seats, told...

Went to see Justin Timberlake last nite, we got a VIP package which I must say was worth it. The view was amazing from our private balcony and also nice food served in our suite. I will definately use the VIP package on my next visit..

We went to see Dancing on Ice. The signs inside the arena were clear and easy to follow. The seats were very good with unobstructed views and reasonable leg room.
