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.

Selected reviews for this venue:
sarah mae macmaster, 18/11/14
WWE Live (18/11/14) - amazing!
greats show! took my boyfriend to the see the stars as an early birthday present and it was fantastic, I think I enjoyed it more than him haha
Plenty of food and drink stalls around, normal prices for venue. Lots of people wanting to be in and out of seats all the way through, lots of us getting fed up with missing some of the moves and dancing.
Kylie Minogue (18/11/14) - Fantastic Event
The whole concert experience was fantastic, Kylie came over as a really friendly person, who actually was interested in her fans. The lights went up twice in her concert for her to see us, she went round the crowd to see what was going on and what banners where around. Kylie picked out a few people to talk too. The main 2 I remember was a man who wanted her to sign his tattoo. After taking him on stage she was flabbergasted to see her on his tattoo and she happily signed it. The other was a girl who was turning 16 in 2 weeks, Kylie invited her on stage and took a selfie with the shaking and tearful young girl, who Kylie hugged and spoke to. For me this added to the amazing night of old and new songs, great costumes, dancers and a lot of bopping about by me. I went with my daughter, who tagged along for company and she is now a fan. Well done Kylie. xx
