  • Great venue with easy access to public transport and parking. If you use the parking, I highly recommend taking a photo of the nearest numbered post. I don't usually get befuddled and lose my car but this car park does it to me every time. And I had many people in the same boat. One thing that really annoyed me was that I had received an email during the day about venue rules which allowed for bottled water in a clear unopened bottle. But on arrival was told that no drinks were allowed. This was the second night of seeing Queen and they had changed the rules from the night before. The arena needs to sort its security processes out.
  • Great night out. The venue was nice although air-conditioning could have been a bit cooler. A lot of time wasted by staff having to open bottles and pour liquid into cups. I can understand the reasons why so maybe a few more staff to assist would take the pressure of the few there.
  • I was amazed at how the well people flowed through the venue. Full house and i was never shoulder to shoulder with anyone. Chairs comfy and roomy for us fatties. Venus & Toilets are clean. Food is limited, expensive but fresh and tasty. There was a bar but i didn't use it. I was impressed
  • It’s a good venue. We saw a concert and the sound and views were good. My chief complaint is the overlong lines to just get a drink. Getting a plastic bottle of water opened up and dumped in a plastic cup and then using a plastic straw seemed about the worst idea environmentally as well.
  • Watched Bruno Mars concert here. Venue was big, but not the biggest. Very clean, and easy to navigate. Lots of choices for food and drinks, however the price is very expensive compared to the outside.
