We attended a concert here in February 2017 and it was very organised. For those who want to queue early in the day security operated a very fair system so that those who had waited longest were able to enter the venue first.

Cheap seating, emergency exit lighting disturbs view for rows, very little parking, hall is not very attractive. Difference between higher price seats and lower is minimal. Public transit access only by bus because venue is in suburbs. Acoustics ok.

Was there during the farewell concert of Vaya Con Dios (Dani Klein) The concert was great. But the hall was terrible. The airconditioning was totally insufficient. The doors, used by late comers and early leavers, were very noisy. The seats small and uncomfortable. If it...More

Large arena. Very diverse performances. Large waiting area in front. Food & drinks available inside. Difficult to reach in a car, to park and to leave. Police distributes tickets like they're candy. Tips & tricks: If you arrive early (~1h before the start of the...More
