AMAZING EVENT! from Beatris, 14/11/14
It was perfect. The tickets arrived on time and the event was amazing! Very very satisfied!! Me and my best friend saw all our favorite wrestlers. It was an amazing show from WWE. Very happy. We were on the second row all we could even touch them if we try. It was an unbelievable experience and I am very happy that everything turned out great !!!

Age relevant new material! from Nutter, 11/11/14
Funny from the start - all new material which was so relevant to our group age! Just long enough with a break in between - would have shortened this to 20 mins instead of 30 but all in all good value for money & would definitely come to another event here as this was our first visit.

Il Divo

A superb show ! from VonnyfromDonny, 05/11/14
This was my first Il Divo live show and it was a fantastic experience from start to finish ! The group were excellent, performing songs from all the great shows on Broadway. Each of the guys sang individually, then together, and they were superb ! We were entertained by little anecdotes from each of them, along with a lot of humour and interaction with the audience. They made everyone there feel that they were speaking personally to each and every one present in the room. Some of the songs, particularly Somewhere over the rainbow were very emotional and delivered with such passion as to bring a tear to the eye...Supporting the group was the lovely Lea Salonga, whos fabulous voice is a great match to accompany the guys in the group.Time to say goodbye was delivered in spectacular style and it must be said, was as good if not better that the original ! Standing ovations were given throughout the show, then again at the end by a very appreciative audience. I look forward to seeing them again in the future, all in all - a very emotional affair !

The Big Reunion - Boy Band Tour
27/10/14
shocking from mick kelly, 03/11/14
We werent expecting a night of great vocals or dance moves just to be entertained but the show was so so bad you had men singing!well they call it that but it was clearly very heavy on auto tune each band did two songs then just walked of stage like they bus had come Then an xfactor build up for the next lot The show set up,the groups and they whole night was a wash out The only saving grace was that they was an interval yes an interval at a gig !!!so we could leave and we did

brilliant singing from Linda, 03/11/14
Enjoyed this event very much but would have preferred them to sing in English more. It didnt last long enough thought only 1 encore was a bit stingy. The cost of the programme at £15 was far too expensive

One for the Ladies from TonyB, 03/11/14
First time at an Il Divo concert. A bit cheezy and unashamedly targeted at mature women. I found the singing a bit samey, usually starting with one singer then maybe another or duet/trio eventually building up to the crescendo finale of all 4 singing with a couple of key changes for effect. Was ok for most of the songs but they sadly murdered Youll Never Walk Alone with poor orchestration/arrangement, and need to understand that sometimes simple is best. The supporting artist Lea Salonga was excellent and easily the best musical theatre singer on stage, her solos were the highlight of the concert. Overall I found the concert enjoyable if a little underwhelming but was clearly aimed at their target audience who seemed to love every minute.

Excellent music, shame we couldnt s... from Sow1, 21/10/14
Fantastic concert by Caro but desperately needed a big screen, we couldnt see her face at all so it spoilt it really. Kris Berry the support act had a brilliant voice but god her music was depressing. The whole audience must have thought so as well as when she finally said she was going to liven things up they all cheered. Used the premier lounge prior to the show which was great but I do think they are taking the mickey charging £5 booking fee for that as well.

Fantastic night from With cucumber, 21/10/14
Fantastic entertainment. Caro Emerald was just as amazing live as she is on her recordings. I think enough is said above but I cannot file this post without writing 100 characters, definite believer in less is more

Wonderfull singer and backing group from Reggie, 20/10/14
The venue is superb and the leeds audience reacted well to caro and her band. Caro appreciciated the audience participation and came back for a prolonged encore, indeed apart from the support artist, then then she was on stage for just under two hours. Everyone was up for the night, however as usual there is always the couple who want to get up in their seats and dance within the first 10 mins and have no respect for the people who sit directely behind them, having paid the same money. It would be nice to be given car parking locations and costs

A great night! from fleetpete, 20/10/14
Ive been a someday fan for a while now; my wife however, is a real fan so, as it was her birthday last week it made sense to go. What a good decision that turned out to be, we had a fabulous night. Caro was everything (and more!) than we expected; absolutely blown away was our feeling at the end of the night. The band was excellent, the venue (Leeds First Direct Arena) was just right...all in all a perfect end to a birthday treat. We will definitely see Caro Emerald again!

Caro Emerald is amazing!! from Lubylou60, 20/10/14
Caro Emerald was amazing in Leeds on Saturday. Shes as good live as she is on CD. What a fantastic voice. A great performer. The musicians in her band are individually impressive too. A really good night out. The support act was a little disappointing though. Although Kris has a great voice, shes not really right as a warm up act but would be good on CD Im sure.
