  • We visited this Arena for the first time to see Cat stevens. He is still fantastic. Unfortunately the Arena let him down, at first we thought the massive crowd were singing along but we soon realised ...  more »
  • The Yusuf/Cat Stevens performance was wonderful - but the echo in the arena was shocking. A fraction of a second after hearing Cat Stevens sing a note we heard the same note echoing back. This would b...  more »
  • Arrived early as recommended. Went to the new (to us) restaurant on the ground floor and had a fantastic meal. When we got to our seats, booked 8 months ago, we had a large visual block (bottom of sta...  more »

  • Attended the BTS concert here and this is definitely one of the better venues I've been to. Great sound system, security team was good, comfortable seating. It was great. Only thing is, I saw that there were only two people handing items out of the cloak room which definitely seems quite lacking for a concert with around 11,000 attendees.
  • I went to the IEM event in May 2017 and it was great. The sound quality was amazing, the size was good too. The seats were perfect and had bottle holders for water and cups and the staff were very helpful. The only downside is the toilets were too spaced out and had huge lines and the same with food availability and cause 30 minute Line ups
  • The arena itself is quite good, with comfy seats and good views. The venue management, however, was very poor at the double header game we attended. Huge queues to get in, due to not enough staff allocated to check bags, no signs or directions as to where to go. Once inside, huge queues for food, only to be told they'd run out, to find the next cashier had plenty still available (our server hadn't bothered to check). Half the food venues weren't even open, despite knowing it was going to be a big crowd. Great game, poor venue management.
  • Been there a couple of times to attend events, really like this place, its worth checking out.
  • Went to an ice hockey game. USA vs Canada and the staff were friendly prompt, no delays at all. The dome is quality! The sound, lighting are amazing!
