Great concert and venue. Spoilt by the box office reselling our tickets so new seats issues despite the venue being sold out? Tip ...... never leave your tickets for collection on the night, big mistake despite buying 8 months earlier. Not sure what the resolution would have been if there actually had of been no seats left.

A very modern and impressive structure which nestles alongside the Tyne and Millennium Bridge. I was fortunate enough to be at a business event at the Sage and what a fantastic structure. Staff were great here and certainly a very popular local and tourist attraction particularly for business meetings with its bars and cafe. Recommended!

We popped into The Sage for a quick bite to eat. Lovely building, so glad we visited. Food was good and not bad prices. Hope to see a concert here sometime in the future.

Myself and my wife saw Bonnie Raitt at the Sage. Before the show began we dined in the restaurant. The food was very good. Afterwards we found our seats for the concert. The acoustics were excellent , much better than other venues we have been to. Outside parking is also good

I love The Sage, the acoustics are fab and it always has a great atmosphere. The staff on the other hand, can be a nightmare. I have attended two concerts recently, during the first one I had to discreetly, check my phone, due to ill health within my family. The staff were straight to me, I was pointed out by... More

We had a lovely evening listening to this national sporting hero all in aid of a great local charity, the Percy head ly trust. The venue is ideal for this kind of event. The staff were helpful but the best bits were the views down the river. Absolutely stunning My only gripe was the parking cost. The car park was... More

Without doubt this is one of the worlds finest concert halls. The acoustic is as good as anywhere in the UK. The futuristic design is very striking. The building dominates the surrounding area and first impressions have the wow factor. Spacious cafe and nice gift shop. Great views across the river to bridges with Newcastle as a backdrop. This is... More
