First time here to see a show . lovely looking venue with a bar on each floor.
The seats are not comfortable and 2 low to the floor if you haveback and hip problems you really hurt by end of show Also need more lifts as waited ages at end of show.
Overall would we visit here again yes but wear flat shoes as there are alit of steps, maybe more escalators needed.

My very first time there saw 3 bands was fantstic I enjoyed it. The cold drinks and food are great. Going again next month on the 11th of april going with family. And thanks for the great atmosphere. A place were the music is awesomeness. Price of tickets are at a very good price. But you can choose who you want to see. Remember if the band is top notice buy the tickets early or you will miss out.

We saw a fantastic Beethoven concert. The sound and view was brilliant where we we're sat.
The only let down was the most uncomfortable seating, also not much leg room so I ended up sitting at angle. The toilets were spotless, in fact the whole building presented itself as clean.

We went to see the Aussie Floyd and loved the venue. It's light. airy and spacious. The arena is a nice size intimate without being small. However, seating is quite awful. The seats are quite narrow so you end up with your shoulders hunched but the worst bit was the leg room aspect. I was ok but my bf had his knees jammed against the seat in front and there was no way for him to move, it was really uncomfortable for him for 2 1/2 hours.

I liked the fact that if you have to nip out during the show you are only allowed back in when a song has finished thus cutting out the traffic of people trooping in and out.
