We went to a phenomenal Don Henley concert here, but our enjoyment was marred by a few things that could easily be addressed: the volume of the music was ridiculously loud - I wore earplugs throughout, and it was just the right volume. Hubby commented on the ringing in his ears as we were leaving. The seats are very uncomfortable,... More

This venue is great for family shows as the seating is angled at such a gradient even little people can see without 'the taller' person in front blocking their view We saw Ice Age on Ice here and it was great, staff were friendly and helpful and even had a armband service for kids where you could tag them with...

We paid $300 for what we thought would be good seats for the Nick Cave concert last night. What a disgrace. Sound reverberation was shocking, our view was blocked by the Sound Tech desk, multi light consoles and equipment blocking our view. We were so disgusted we didn't stay for the encore. A real disappointment and certainly not to be... More

Watching the amazing Nick Cave at Vector Arena was almost an out of body experience! The man was on fire and the venue was superb. Great vantage from any angle and terrific acoustics. The man himself was stellar in his performance.

Booked late and could only get seats in the clouds. Couldn't see the entertainer, so basically watched it all on a tv screen. Would have been more comfortable at home. Seats were so bad that if there was a fire we would be dead, don't know how they got planning permission. Too many people, not enough exits and hot as.... More

Lots of bands choose this place because it's the only indoor venue of a reasonable size. So I guess you have no choice if that's where they are playing, but go prepared, I have been to at least a dozen gigs here and the sound is consistently bad! Many of my friends simply refuse to go to any sort of... More
