Great venue, easy access, plenty of bar staff and room. No humongous ques like other concert halls, there was plenty to go round. Staff were great and the whole arena had great views of the stage and bands. Definitely visit again.

Visited with my daughter to see Australian Pink Floyd, wonderful show, the music was amazing. We sat in block D and the view due to seating arrangements was excellent. Will visit again and would highly recommend.
