“excellent venue”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

First time at a concert at Motorpoint but was very impressed, the seating is tiered so well that e everyone can see the stage clearly. The concessions are not too expensive either so you don't feel that you are being 'ripped it'd.

“Little Mix in Cardiff Motorpoint Arena.”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Been here recently to see Little Mix and in the past I have been here various times. Good sized venue, not too big and not too small. Always a good atmosphere and always people to help. Only downside is the prices of soft drinks & food etc.

“Security”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Brilliant Concert by Barry Manilow. shame the security guards spoilt it. Felt like we were back at school. Poking people hard in the back to tell them to stop recording is not on. Especially as Barrys team has enjoyed seeing all the video clips from all his UK concerts.

“Couldnt see”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We went to SEE Little mix and althought the venue was ok we couldnt see because despite having good seats every one stood up blocking my young very upset daughters view ,If we stood up ,we still couldnt see ,I think there should have been an anouncement saying no standing up or a standing bit for those who wanted to dance or stand up and they should have been told to sit down ,as it ruined their first concert, very selfish in my opinion ,I certainly wont be paying that much again for tickets ,I be buying the cheaper tiered ones ,what a waste of money !!!

Good Afternoon,

I am sorry to hear of your negative experience at the Little Mix concert here at the venue.

I can understand that everyone standing at this show caused you & your family viewing issues and we sincerely apologise for this. As a general rule we tend not to refer too eagerly to the terms and conditions on the back of the tickets, however point 15 states; Live Nation reserves the right to allow audience members to stand in seated areas of the venue. This goes for all shows that are held in our venue, this is because concerts such as little mix most people will want to dance and enjoy the music and performance. We are aware Little Mix audience members very in age range from young fans to young adults including parents attending which can make a variance in heights in the venue. The set this year included video screens and a higher stage.

I hope this hasn't tainted your view of the arena and if there is anything I can do to make your next visit a more enjoyable one please give me an email on gabrielle.giffard@livenation.co.uk

Kindest Regards
Gabrielle

“Perfect Sized ”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

Have previously come here to see many concerts - very good atmosphere always, the space is also great as it is not too spacious such as the O2, but also not to cramped either.
