Visited with my wife to see the amazing Alfie Bowe and Michael Ball. Although we were near the rear of the top tier the view and sound was great.

We decided to combine a weekend away in Brum and a concert here (Beethoven and Adams) and were glad we did. This is an impressive building both inside and out with good acoustics, decent seating and right in the heart of the city.

We have visited numerous times to see bands, singers and comedians. The design offers great views of the stage and is much better than large arenas. This is my favourite venue. Good central location too with good restaurants locally

Went to see Deacon Blue tonight. Had great view of stage from row x until everyone stood up. Couldnt see a thing as I couldnt stand due to a knee injury. Were going to leave but spoke to staff and they moved us to empty seats on level 5. Very courteous and helpful. Saved the night. Thanks very much

We went to see Beth Hart on 11.11.16. Love Beth Hart and have seen her lots of times. However sound quality in above seats was awful. The speakers at that level seemed to be rigged primarily to Beths mike (and the sound of the band was drifting up from below). The Engineer was running up and down the stairs trying... More
