the show was great but the food a r... from kayleigh farman, 10/03/14
me and my 4 year old girl loved the show but what shocked me was the prices for the food. popcorn priced between £3 to £8 and the candyfloss because it had a hat was priced at £8. i will be going to the next Disney show but will not be buying food in the arena, ill wait to go for food before or after the show. the show was amazing, we was sat front row and was worth every penny.

Great event from JB, 10/03/14
A well stage event, only disappointment was we thought we had purchased tickets centre stage to find out when we arrived we were at the side and the arena had been only half used.
The Australian Pink Floyd Show
28/02/14
Absolutely brilliant from Brian Twigg, 03/03/14
This was the second time I have seen this band live in Leeds. The first time was at the Grand, and found that the venue was too small and therefore too loud. The arena was perfect, been purpose built for this type of concert. The band are absolutely brilliant been true in every detail to the original Pink Floyd. The light show, the sounds, superb. Cant wait for them to return.
The Australian Pink Floyd Show

Brilliant show from sothstand Geordie, 03/03/14
Have listened to this music for over 40 years and this is the first time I have seen Aussie Floyd. What an amazing tribute to the writing of Pink Floyd. First heard Dark Side Of The Moon in the rather short lived Sony Quadraphonic system; a great pity more of there early stuff hadnt been done in this format. However 5.1 systems nowadays make up for this.
The Australian Pink Floyd Show

Superb Show ! from Gary 58, 03/03/14
Tribute bands can get a bad press but The Australian Pink Floyd must be the best at what they do , Superb musicians and singers combine to pay homage to the music of Barrett,Waters,Gilmour,Mason and Wright and do not let anybody down......the chosen set list ticked all the boxes and the Lights/Lasers and Visuals add superbly to what is a top class show.....highly recommended

Fantastic night from BevCav109, 25/01/14
This is the 5th time we have been to see Strictly and it gets better every yr!! It is one of the best nights of our year...I took my Son 8 and my Daughter 10, they loved every minute, we had front row seats and were high fived by some of the dancers as they made their way to the stage....and afterwards Robin signed my Sons book and had his photo taken with them both....if you want entertainment and love Strictly, you MUST go to the tour, you will go year after year....like us x

Fantastic from Xtina Aucky, 15/01/14
What a wonderful evening we had. Its a superb arena with great acoustics. The presenters did a good job of moving around the arena interviewing many different sports personalities. The atmosphere was electric. Will definitely go and see many more events here.
Boyzone
09/12/13
Great night from Prawnie, 31/12/13
I had a great night singing along with Boyzone. This was at a slower pace than previous concerts with maybe a little too much of memory play backs. I found the part where the boys acknowledged Stephen memory very moving, especially when the table, single chair and glass of wine disappeared into the staging. All in all a great night!
Peter Pan - The Never Ending Story
26/12/13
Fantastic Show from Prawnie, 31/12/13
I attended this with my mum and teenage daughter. We all loved this version of the Peter Pan story. The use of the fans with the fabric at the start set the magical feel to the show from the beginning. The size of Nana and the crocodile were great, added to the story. The sky diving flying was just the best. All made this a fantastic, very enjoyable show for all ages!!

Fantastic event from Bramley Rhino, 27/12/13
A great night watching a live TV show. The warm up was interesting and the show itself was very good
Peter Pan - The Never Ending Story
26/12/13
Not Peter Pan that we know from 1weetwood, 26/12/13
Some will find the show very good, but sadly, not our family. The songs were all sung with a classical edge. Hook sang Opera and Smee wore a dress. This really dissapointed us and i noted that quite a few near us left at half time. My son was bored throughout. Im sorry to say that i would not recommend.

Could Do Better from Richard Barrett, 24/12/13
Never having been to a similar event, it was everything I thought it would be. There was a tremendous atmosphere with excellent compares. The whole evening seemed well rehearsed. The bag containing programme and torch was a nice touch.

BBC SPOTY from Debro, 24/12/13
Fabulous. The audience was brilliant. The seating was comfortable and the whole layout of the arena is great. The sound is exceptional and I certainly would not hesitate to go there again. Oh and the staff are all knowledgable and helpful. Disabled access was good as well.
