Saw The Killers who were superb but awful experience at the Riverside Stadium - couldn't cope with the volume of people in attendance, no chance of getting a drink, huge queues at all bars and then small stalls selling warm cans for £5 a pop before running out. Toilets like something out of a horror film, could smell them before tou walked in - disgusting and having everyone exit down the narrow tunnels in the south stand nothing short of dangerous. Upon finally exiting the stadium down the death trap corridors then endured a 45 minute queue to walk back through the two tunnels/underpasses back to the town centre, a nightmare. Won't be returning, a s**t hole and an accident waiting to happen. Don't host a major concert if your venue is not fit for purpose!!

Fantastic show bit very very poor bar serving. Staff were polite but clearly undertrained. I lined at 2 separate bars only to be told they were out of larger when I reached the front. The 3rd bar a qued at for a very very long time. When I was next to be served I could see there was issues with the large tab. They young lady serving was pouring glass after glass of nothing but foam. This seemed to go on for 7-8 pints. When one patron shouted "you need to ask for some help" the lady replied "I've been radioing and radioing but not getting any response". I then left without a drink.

Gig was fab, but the ground and facilities were absolutely atrocious. The bar situation was shocking. Queue after queue for drinks….queued for about an hour to find the 1st bar only served bud, queued for all of the manics playlist to find the 2nd bar had ran out of alcohol and wouldn’t serve or get more supply’s (so called manager not bothered and said join another queue); joined a third queue outside of the concourse and missed the first few songs of the killers. Severely understaffed, lack of leadership, lack of training and just not equipped to deal with large crowds any more. Seat numbers also missing from some of the east stand so hard to locate seats. Great to have bangs on at the riverside, but this was such a poor reflection on the ground and the facilities.

Killers Gig let down by shocking service at all of the bars and food stalls inside and out fan village needed to be double the size with 3 times more bars and toilets ,, not set up for big bands to play, unfortunately missed 50% of the night queuing for drinks and basic toilet needs. Staff clearly overwhelmed , Management failed to plan correctly for the numbers. Basic event organising failed.

Queues for food and drink were horrendous. I have been to many stadiums and arenas and never experienced anything like it. 1.5 hours in a queue for a drink is unacceptable.
I live in Middlesbtough and I'm embarrassed to think people have traveled here to our town for this, I doubt they would return. It's been 2 years in the planning, it should of been more organised. If you can't cope with the amount of people and can't provide a service, then don't host!!!

Absolutely wonderful evening at The Killers. Amazing organisation in terms of the stewards, security, Happy to Help people etc. The fanzone outside was chaotic, but insde the stadium there were plenty of bars and facilitities. Also got food inside with no queue. Well done to the many people working at the event that did a wonderful job.

England v Austria, so first visit to the Riverside.
Looking a little tired around the stadium, like it needs a lick of paint.
Mind you, my last visit to a football match in Middlesbrough was at Ayresome Park, so this is a big improvement. Shame about the England fans.

Don't host a concert if you have no clue how to organise one. Ridiculous night at the Killers, spent half the night waiting for a drink. Micky mouse organisation who didn't know what they where doing.

Yet again an outstanding Sunday Lunch, 3 courses coffee and mints silver service very good selection on the menu that changes every time you go. Discount if you are a season ticket holder and stadium tour for free if you want it. Could not get any better value for money with a high standard, Exellent.

Food ok service is not very good. Attended during match loads of staff stood in large packs not much service going on. Asked if I could change starter, no other choice. So didn't have one staff member was going to ask if anything else available never came back. Ordered half time drinks only one of four arrived.. Then more arrived after meal. No organisation needs a good person in charge as too many people just wandering. Service disappointing but food good.
