My husband was delighted to receive for Christmas, tickets to the only Uriah Heep concert in Sydney. He was looking forward to seeing one of his favourite bands of his youth. We arrived at the venue to discover there were many stairs to climb to the theatre, and no sign at all of a lift. We were stunned to discover... More

While visiting Sydney we saw two concerts at The Metro and thought it was a cool venue. It's big enough to feel like there's a decent sized crowd, but small enough that you get up close with the artists. We also loved that it was a standing venue, because a crowd that can move and dance always has amazing energy.... More

We went to see a Ska band here,from the 80's called The English beat , a few weeks back. The doors opened half an hour late. The support act took another hour to come on, and then the main act took ages to get on. The sound mix was atrocious, we couldn't make out any words. A very small amount... More

Rather a dodgy and dirty place this Metro Theatre… Walked in very skeptical, did not dare to use the restrooms. The floors were sticky with old beer, the acoustics were terrible. It was a shame because the band was amazing, they should have been set to play at the Opera House. You cannot keep your ticket because it has to... More

We saw Newton Faulkner perform here. The place was well laid out with a good sized standing area in front of the stage and then terraced standing behind. Felt like about 1500 people. It was easy to get a good view of the stage from pretty much anywhere and the atmosphere was fantastic. Would definitely see another band here if... More

First visit to this venue - great atmosphere but drinks too expensive. Some seating need to be provided as standing from 7 -11pm is abit difficult for anyone over 50!

Came from Melbourne to see Marianas trench. Brilliant venue, loved the atmosphere. Arrived early and the doorman was so lovely, polite and helpful - as were all the staff in the place. Most refreshing.
