We went to a concert at Sage 2, which was marred on as many levels as the auditorium. My wife had a glass of wine which came in a plain plastic glass at the exorbitant price of £6:50. I know you expect to pay a...More

We come here often. Sage Gateshead offers so many musical experiences - from pre-shool children - to OAP and Silver members. Many big names give concerts here, and the building has 3 concert halls that are all sealed and separate - so that the music...More

I have been to several gigs and shows at the Sage now and it really is a stunning venue. I have never seen another building quite like it, inside or out. It has a large concert hall (Sage 1) and a smaller, circular hall (Sage...More

I’ve been to numerous music venues but this is one of the very best. Beautifully designed and extremely comfortable inside. The vast majority of the seating, even in the upper circle, offers you an excellent view of the performers. Like most venues, the bar is...More

Hi. We went to see Neil Sedaka . Our seats were row 5 six seats in on the right. Wonderful seats. I think the way the sage is designed means there really are no bad seats
