Good sound system, unpleasant guards
Oct 2017
Attended concerts for 4 nights at the Hong Kong Coliseum, impression before going is that this is an old place (it was built in the 80s!). But it didn’t look or feel old. Nothing impressive of the exterior, zone and gates were clearly labelled, plenty of space around for concert goers to gather around before entering the coliseum. Entrance into the coliseum was fast and fuss free, no security check (surprise surprise) and there were ushers all round to lead you to your seat. As I got tickets from my friend, there was one show where the ticket we had was: Section 54, Row2, Seat 84 Section 55, Row2, Seat 96 Seemed like it was totally away from each other? They were side by side to my relief. Completely didn’t understand the numbering mechanism of this. Inside the coliseum, the seats were well arranged, staggered steps, all have a pretty good view of the stage. Have to praise the sound system, absolutely enhance the performer’s show. The only very unpleasant experience at the coliseum was with the guards. They were all around during the concert, catching people doing photography with phone / camera. The issue was with the way they carry out their job, it was disrupting to the other concert goers. They would walk to the errant audience’s row and use a torch to shine if they were not able to access them to give a verbal warning. Due to their frequent pacing up and down on the walkways, it was very distracting and irritating and it blocks the view of the stage. I sat at the first row right after the aisle and personally felt that they were very very disrupting, some guards thought that half bending while walking would render them invisible, but not! After the concert, they were very harsh in chasing the audience to leave the coliseum as fast as possible. They were rude and really unpleasant! The venue or events manager should give their guards proper training and station them strategically in the coliseum so that majority of the concert goers would not be disrupted. Tips: - Don’t bring big luggage bags to the coliseum for concert, the guards won’t allow entrance and there is no bag deposit area. - Queue for the toilet will be very long before and after the concert. Leave some time for that.

Vivian Chow Concert
Jan 2018 • Couples
Attended Vivian Chow’s concert. The view of the stage from my seat was not too bad. Red sector, seat 92. The seating platform is steep, which is good. Allow unblock view. Sound system was not as good. There was a lot of reverb. Maybe the floors should be acoustic treated again. The security were quite rude in the sense, when they catch you taking photos, they will shine their torch straight to your face. Firstly it’s rude, secondly it disturb the other concert goers. The management should relook at this again. After the concert, please be prepared to queue at Hong Hom MTR station.

The premier venue for concerts in Hong Kong. Conveniently located right next to Hung Hom station.

Transport is coodinated to allow concert goers to leave with little worry.

If you ever want to see a good show, this place is the place to go.

When to see concert at Hong Kong Coliseum and the show was brilliant.

The lighting, effect and firework was wonderful and worth paying for the ticket.

I'm from Spore and came here to attend concert, the sound system and stage mechanism is very good. Seats wise also unblock as the height of the rows is alright for photography. I used exit D3 of Hong Hom mtr, so I find this shortest walk back to mtr. Will come back for other concerts!

Sportscomplex with annoying guards and no foodstalls
Nov 2015 • Solo
Its is unbelievable how ignorant the stewards are at this place. They come across as a team who has absolutely no clue what they're doing. We were moved several times without good explanation, and ended up with seats with limited viewing.
Furthermore you can't get any food or drinks at the venue which is totally surprising.

I went there for 3 times, 2 for Sammi Cheng's concert (2006 and 2014) another for Andy Lau (2008). This is a dream for all the Superstars. Unbeatable, this is my dream also. The location is great, able to reach by MTR. This is a wonderful concert hall in Hong Kong.
