“Positive experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014

Went to the Michael Buble concert at Vector. The food/beverage service was efficient and the selection of items was really impressive - Rekorderlig cider, chocolate topped donuts etc. The usher staff were polite and unobtrusive but when there was a large queue at one of the bathrooms they politely told everyone that there was an empty bathroom just round the corner that we might like to use since the act was about to start. Great service!

“Michael Buble!”

I disliked being up in the Gods. Took two mountain goats and a Sherpa to get me up there +oxygen. BUT when MB came on, it was worth every gasping breath!

“Good venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

Saw the artic monkeys play seated tickets and it's a decent gig venue. Does not feel to big. Prices are pretty standards for food drinks in these type of venue. Queues can get pretty long once main acts start as they start closing a lot of the tills.

“Good venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Good location. Nice venue. Expensive alcohol. Staff helpful. Once all the entry doors were closed and the concert began I noticed the place really heated up. It was a full house and got sooo hot. Needed a door open or air conditioning.

“Sport only”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

This an absolute joke as a venue. Poor acoustics, terrible seating, your taller than 5ft you feel like you sitting on a child's seat. More than hour and you the lack of cushioning becomes painful. You will also find they never read reviews so will take no notice. Even Billy Connolly mention how far back some the seats were. This really isn't a venue to watch anything but netball and basket ball.
