We got to see the Eagles play here, hot night, could have done with more air con, easy to get to from down town, lots of instruction on arrival, cues a bit long.

Rod Laver is a great venue for the Australian Open tennis and concerts. Walking distance to the centre of Melbourne, with all of it bars restaurants and other attractions. No city in the world can compete with Melbourne sports precinct

Attended the recent Roxette concert at Rod Laver Arena. Easy to access by Tram with a stop right outside and short walk into the stadium. Easy to catch Tram home after the concert too. The venue has numerous food outlets , clean amenities and great viewing for concert.

Went to The Eagles concert a couple of nights ago. A really fantastic venue for this sort of event. Can only imagine it would be awesome to watch tennis here.

Great for a tennis match and also for some music events, however its not a huge stadium and doesn't fit a mass of people. Although the Stadium is immaculate, and if you can get tickets, go! If there is no even on I wouldn't go here however. It is in prime location and likened to some of the best arenas... More

Been waiting to see The Eagles for years. I was super impressed! Fabulous music executed perfectly. The young 'entertainers' of today could learn a thing or two from these seasoned professionals. Rod Laver arena was pretty good. We were as far away as possible in row PP (paid double price from Viagogo 8 months ago!!). Acoustics were good although there... More

Great place to see a concert or go to see the Aus Open. No point going there on your own if you're not going for an event. If you're in Melbourne for a short time, don't bother walking here if you're not going to event. As it will be a waste of your precious time in Melbourne where you can... More

as we all know , February's in summer . So please cater for it and update your climate control . the only reason we stayed in the venue was because the Eagles were playing.

this stadium is beautifully designed and allows for events such as The Australian Open Tennis, Monster truck rallies, dirt bike exhibitions , and stage shows of every description. It is amazing to sit in this area and watch The Eagles and try to imagine the mechanics of running a Monster Truck Rally in the same area. We found the seating... More
