I was there to see iron maiden. General layout and sound quality were poor. On leaving it’s very chaotic. Cars everywhere and transport links into town rubbish. Hopefully the new one will be better planned and designed.

It's not the best venue but I know they are building a new one in Aberdeen. However, it didn't detract from a fantastic show by Michael McIntyre.
