“Rocking Rod!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Excellent venue, Rod Stewart was incredible! Access is easy & efficient as is leaving the Arena. Drinks are a bit pricey at £4:40 a pint but a great venue in a great city.

“Good venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Arena situated just a few mins walk from the City Centre, if using the tram alight at the Lace Market stop.

Visited for the first time Sat 1st June for a Rod Stewart concert. Huge arena with lots of staff on hand to guide you to the correct block entrance and then on to your seats.

Good venue for concerts, sound and lighting very good and seats on the downstairs floor area were quite comfortable. I'd always opt for tickets for the floor area, not sure I could cope with sitting at a slant in the wings.

Couldn't get into TJ's bar, it was packed but with nearly 8000 people there, not surprising! Plenty of places to pick up a drink, snack or a bite to eat and even places selling a veggie burger, which is good to see. Also prices were reasonable, unlike so many venues there was no cheeky price hikes, so well done to this place.

Lots of toilets, so no real queues, they were dated but kept clean.

All in all a good experience and although we live a 3 hour drive away, we'll have no hesitation in returning to see a concert there.

“No problems”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Good ease of entry and egress. Perfectly suitable for purpose. Liked location and design. Perfectly suited for what it was designed for! This minimum 50 characters rubbish really irritates me! Sometimes less is more etc etc etc etc!
