The Newcastle Metro Radio Arena, officially ranked the 7th busiest venue in the world by Pollstar magazine, is the largest concert and exhibition arena in the North East of England and is owned and operated by SMG Europe.
The Newcastle Metro Radio Arena has a strong commitment to the North East as a region, and is more than capable of supporting the very best in entertainment in its huge 40,000sq metre site.
The 11,000 plus seater purpose built Arena was the brainchild of former Animals stars, the late Chas Chandler and his partner in Park Arena Nigel Stanger. It opened in November 1995 and the first concert saw the legendary David Bowie grace the stage.
Some of the biggest names in the business have wowed crowds at the Arena including the likes of Oasis, Rod Stewart, Coldplay, Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Beyonce, Rihanna, Take That, Kings of Leon, Kasabian, Peter Kay, Mamma Mia, Cirque Du Soleil and the internationally acclaimed Riverdance and Les Miserables to name just a few.
Since its opening, the Metro Radio Arena quickly established itself as a leading UK venue and major North East landmark, alongside the Tyne Bridge, Angel of the North and Hadrian's Wall. It has already played host to millions of visitors to concerts, exhibitions, conferences and world class sports events.
Thousands of children and adults alike have watched the sensational Disney on Ice performances, whilst sports enthusiasts have enjoyed World Championship boxing, WWE wrestling and Premier League Darts at the Newcastle Metro Radio Arena.

The venue was easy to get to, parking was good and also easy to exit. The only fault was the bar was slow we waited 15mins for our drinks and missed the beginning of the show
Ant and Dec (16/09/14) - Very entertainig
I thoroughly enjoyed Ant and Decs takeaway live at The Metro Radio Arena, there was lots going on to take part in which the audience loved. Ant and Dec were amazing, their guests were good, I cant say anything bad about my experience it was all FAB!
Ant and Dec (15/09/14) - Absolutely Fantastic
We had a brilliant night everybody was in good spirits and you couldnt help but get involved with everything on the show.I would most certainly recommend the show to people.
This was my first time inside the arena and I was impressed. It was spacious, with good quality lighting, sound and the atmosphere was fantastic.
Ant and Dec (15/09/14) - Great Evening of Entertainment
It was a great evening of entertainment, everything youd expect from the hit tv show. Everything was right, there was lots of audience participation and, as youd expect, lots of singing along. Especially with the return of Sing-a-long Live, which was fantastic. The special guests were amazing and were willing to take part in what the mischievous duo had in stall for them, including the very popular and extremely funny Im A Celebrity, Get Out Of My Ear!. There was a special appearance form Little Ant and Dec, to which we were told would be their only venue, but I was then disappointed to see them (or lookalikes, the picture wasnt great) at the last of the Irish shows. Overall though it was a fantastic experience and one that I will never forget.
