  • The SSE Arena is one of the worst venues I've been too. For a start they have untrained staff on the door, one of whom kept getting told off in front of everyone, which clearly showed lack of training...  more »
  • Poor ventilation. Uncomfortable cramped plastic seating. Massive queues for inadequate number of toilets. No restriction on people wandering in late, despite comms saying otherwise. These factors comb...  more »
  • We went to the SSE to see Brian Cox. It was a very hot day , and although we didn't enter until 7:00pm the arena was still warm, and for warmer ! Seating layout was not particularly clear, and without...  more »

  • Went to see The Cure here December 16. Would watch them anywhere to be honest and so that helps towards the 5 stars. but it's an excellent venue with a more than decent sound. We had good seats to the left of the stage but looking around, I couldn't see many seats I would have been too disappointed with apart from the stand down the back of venue. Drink/Food as per usual for concert venues so nothing to complain about there.
  • Place is huge. Really easy to see the main act on stage if you have floor seating. Lots of choices for food and drinks. Alcohol wasn't too expensive. On their website they say you can bring your own bottled water or soft drinks. However on entrance they made me empty my water bottle into a glass and said actually no your not allowed to take it in. So they need to get their facts right on the website as its misleading. Apart from that had an amazing time.
  • It's a really nice small arena. The staff are really helpful and take you to your seat with a smile. The acoustic set up is outstanding . Watching Hans Zimmer is beyond anything iv heard before and Iv seen the prodigy a few times. A good venue all round.
  • We watched Hans Zimmer perform here and had an excellent time. The venue itself isn't much to shout about, though it offers everything you need from such a facility. The acoustics weren't terrible, but could have been improved in my opinion. Be prepared for long queues, as security is very thorough (clear, a good thing). There are rules for what you can take in, so ditch any bottles or cans of drink beforehand.
  • Famous London indoor events arena. Originally opened in 1934 and had a fairly recent refurb of £35 million. Capacity of 12,500. Stages all types of events from music to comedy and many more. Many of the highest class of performers have taken to this stage. Nice environment with food and drink available. The staff have always been pleasant each time I have visited.
