Great venue for concerts. Sound is good, and venue is warm if cold. Easy to reach from CBD, though we often at Southbank. Food available, and plenty of restrooms.

We have seen several acts including Nickelback, Motley Crue, Metallica & Pink at this venue over the years and it never disappoints. Excluding the restriced view seats there is not a bad seat at this venue and we have sat on the floor, the first level and also the highest seats in the arena and all were great.
