Absolutely Fantastic from bryanfan, 01/12/14
We have seen Bryan Adams at different venues this has to be one of the best. He came on stage at 8pm and we were treated to over two hours of hit after hit. First time at Leeds Arena and really impressed being a wheelchair user from arriving to leaving treatment was first class. We didnt have to que were taken straight to viewing position which is excellent no one in front to spoil the view, will definitely be going again

Hes still got it! from BigJo, 01/12/14
Fantastic, intimate concert. Bryan did not disappoint! Full of old classics and some new thrown in. Very impressed that he was on stage from 8pm through til 10.15pm ... even though the band had breaks, he did not. Slick set up, really enjoyed it. Have seen him a number of times, this was as good as any of them years ago!

Fantastic from Lemmy, 01/12/14
Absolutely brilliant gig. Firstly, the Leeds First Direct Arena is an awesome venue tailor made as a music venue. Acoustics and viewing are superb. Secondly Slash and the band were unbelievable. After 40 years of watching live rock music I thought I had seen it all but Slash takes it to another level. Brilliant, 11 out of 10.

Awesome yet again! from DaveKimBates, 01/12/14
One hell of a night at the Leeds Arena! Slash & Myles on stellar form once again! We cant wait for the next time we can see them! Standing tickets provided a brilliant setting but the whole arena had a great view too. Highly recommended!!!!

Sound quality was awful from Dave Thorpe, 01/12/14
Good view of the stage, long varied high energy set with audience interaction, let down massively by one of the worst sound mixes Ive experienced in a long time. Not impressed on my first visit to the first direct arena. A shame

Phenomenal performance from Rachelford7422, 01/12/14
James blunt....... Absolutely amazing. Words can not describe what your concert meant for me and my mother. You blew me away. I can not wait for you to tour uk again. It cant come quick enough. I cant fault your concert in any way at all. Big well done to the dunwells who were supporting you. Amazing up and coming band. Cant wait to hear them again either.

Fantastic! from Sarahottaway, 01/12/14
the concert and bryan Adams were absolutely amazing it isnt the first time I have been to see bryan Adams and it certainly wont be the last but he was just great! The only criticism I have is there isnt enough room between seats and you dont have a lot of room to put your legs. Also beyond peoples control but people were coming into the concert halfway through and at one point we had about 4 people stood I. Front of us blocking our view we couldnt even see the big screen for them.

Great gig but... from Fletch87, 01/12/14
Brilliant night with all 3 bands... the only criticism Id say is with regards to Slashs lead channel.... it wasnt loud enough, you could barely hear his solos, it wasnt cutting through and over the rest of the band where necessary. Other than that - it was amazing.

Great Gig from NeilDD, 01/12/14
This was a memorable gig and with the bones of two good support acts. This is the second time attending this venue and it is very well designed and laid out.

Amazing performance from Faz, 01/12/14
Slash absolutely rocked the arena at Leeds we had an amazing time. Myles Kennedy and the conspirators where also amazing and interacted well with audience to get the house rocking more.

Top Notch Effort from Adam Hardwick, 01/12/14
Top effort from the never aging Bryan Adams - He got the crowd involved, played all the classics as well as the newly added songs from the fantastic Reckless album - kicking off strong and carried all the way through - enjoyed it - maybe one of the better gigs I have been to (Singing and General music wise) - Bryan Adams and Keith Scott on Song as usual - Already looking forward to his next tour!

To much disruption from Terrier26, 01/12/14
We had a great night watching & listening to Bryan Adams but the night was spoilt with the continuing movement of people not only on our row but others when they kept going out for a drink, coming back with full glasses in the dark, spilling some of the drink on the steps, which we think could be dangerous, then minutes later deciding to go to the toilet. We dont object to drinkers but cant they do without for a couple of hours and consider other people who want to watch the show.

Waste of time and money from Chris B, 17/11/14
This wasnt my first time seeing wrestling but it may be my last especially a house show as this show was. Lineup that was promised was nowhere near the standard on the night (99 of the top talent was sent to Nottingham event on the same night or saved for Liverpool taped show the following evening). There were are pyrotechnics at the disney on ice show. This venue is not set up for wrestling and this showed. Im awaiting contact from the venue regarding a refund but Ive heard nothing yet.

Great Evening of Entertainment from Claire Shakespeare, 17/11/14
The kids absolutely loved it, was a little disappointed that John Cena wasnt there but still enjoyed seeing some of there other favourites. I never imagined how great it would be and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
