Have been fortunate enough to have visited this place twice now and will definitely be back. Saw Billy Joel in concert here 6 years ago but lately watched the New Zealand Breakers Basketball team play another team from the Australian Basketball League. The building lends itself to a variety of purposes and events. Seating for the concert was great, nothing in the road to block your view of the stage and the atmosphere was electric. the basketball was the same. Both evenings were great, clean toilets and the concession stands were great. Will I return, you betcha.

We went to see Michael McIntyre and were pleasantly surprised by the help fullness of the staff and how they served British ale. If you served it at room temperature, you would have 5 stars.

Visited for the World Fast 5 Netball series. Excellent seating and easy to negotiate. The usual food venues we apparently booked for a different event but a reasonable selection of quick foods was available.

Went to the opening Night of 'Immortal' and the venue allowed for quick easy access, had helpful staff, loads of food and drink options (though quite expensive which seems to be the norm at events) and plenty of parking within walking distance. We sat in the front on ground level and could see pretty much everything, and apart from the guitar solo it was not too loud. Would happily go back to the venue for other events.

This is a great attraction, my two girls went to see the One Direction concert on 12 Oct, booked Green Room for them, arrived at 6.30pm for an early entry, avoided the lines, provided with gourmet food and a drink and then escorted to their seats, which were the best in the house. They totally loved and enjoyed the concert. Vector Arena an awesome place to any concert.
