  • Overall a good venue - once you get over the shock of the extortionate drink prices! I guess that's to be expected though in these types of venues with a captive audience so to speak. Security was goo...  more »
  • A show can only be a great show when all elements are taking into consideration. With regards to recent incidences it was reassuring to see the level of security prior to entry to the venue. The staff...  more »
  • I loved seeing Celine Dion. What a masterclass in singing live! It took a while to get in but the high levels of security checks made us feel safe. The seats although in row J gave us some viewing of ...  more »

  • Visited recently for Neil Diamond concert. Now rebranded as 'Arena' Birmingham, formerly 'Barclaycard Arena'. Thought it was poor that people were sitting on floor to eat food purchased, so more seating required for this.Signage to toilets,merchandise, could have been bolder and clearer.Signage for seating (blocks and seats) was good and staff helpful and friendly. Sound quality for concert was good and also video screens clear (useful as I was in Block 8 at rear), seating comfortable with reasonable amount of leg room. Quite a few steps to negotiate to enter building but getting and and out of venue, given amount of people was easy. Travelled by Midland Metro to Grand Central and a 15 minute walk to Arena.Enjoyable night out and generally good venue.
  • Went here for the first time to a Neil Diamond concert. He was very good. The venue however - very crowded foyer. Seats in arena have less legroom and width than an economy class seat. Air conditioning none existent. No staff at end of night to direct people out if the arena. Next time I will stick with the Genting Arena. Far better.
  • Amazing venue. We sat in block 4 lower row q and had a fantastic view. The food and drink is very expensive inside but that is to be expected. The stewards are very helpful .
  • I was here to see Celine Dion in concert with my best friend and her family. What a night! It's was the first ever concert I'd been to and it was amazing! The hospitality of the arena and its staff was so welcoming and friendly. Getting into the arena was a smooth process thanks to the staff. All together it made for an absolutely fantastic night!
  • Visited back in April for the Ed Sheeran concert. There were longs queues all day which could be seen from my office. But think this was more to do with the artist as had never seen queues like that before. We had standing tickets and were quite near the back but there was plenty of space and didn’t feel overcrowded. Prices are typical of a large venue.
