Superb Concert from Alan, 03/07/14
One of the best concerts I have ever attended. They sang all there songs - well known and not so well known - and were on stage for about 2 and 3/4 hours. The atmosphere was fantastic and the acoustics were brilliant, Only downside was the arena got very hot.

Fantastic! from Annie54, 03/07/14
The concert was absolutely fantastic. No gimmics, no support act, it was all about the music and the songs. Joe Walsh was brilliant. At three hours long we certainly got value for money too!

The bare minimum from Alpal, 03/07/14
I was really disappointed with EC at the Leeds gig. He didnt really put any effort in. A few songs, boring versions, nothing very special at all. I am a long time fan and wanted him to do so much beter than this mediocre performance

Eric Clapton from Kenneth, 27/06/14
Eric Clapton gig at Leeds Arena was brilliant while it lasted. But again for some reason (like Glasgow, night before) EC did not finish the concert. We were told gig to finished (by e-mail) at 10.45pm.) Allow people to book taxi or lifts. He went off stage with no explanation, but just to wave to the crowd at 10.10pm. The lights did not go on in the arena for a few minutes as I suppose the management thought he was going to come back on. The audience were amazed lights come on, and people walked out. During the performance, the audience saw the typed list of music on the piano. (through video screen). It contains 3 songs that where never played, biggest one was to be the last one was Layla. How on earth can you leave that out? I was seated floor level, seeing as I paid £80.00 should think so. The only problem with that was seeing, as bar open all the time people where constantly walking in front of me, to go to the bar and then of course to the toilets. Was slow hand annoyed at people walking on and off the area all night, who know? As I say brilliant while it lasted but you can’t treat fans like that. I don’t know how many gigs are left in this tour, but other fans will have got to know about Glasgow and maybe Leeds and think twice about spending there well-earned cash.

Fantastic evening from Caroline, 26/06/14
I was really impressed with Robbie Williams performance at Leeds Arena. He was absolutely fantastic... The whole show was non-stop entertainment. I also think Leeds Arena is a fantastic venue :0) the acoustics were amazing. Well worth the money....

Sounded great-pity I couldnt see hi... from Lynneow, 26/06/14
I was so looking forward to the event and whilst Robbie sounded great the seats we had been allocated were dreadful. They were in block three half way up and I completely accepted that we were not going to be near the stage but expected to be able to see Robbie on the big screens -unfortunately the arena speakers and lighting completely blocked the screens. We complained to the stadium officials during the break and they acknowledged it was problem a lot of people complain about!!! Dont bother booking tickets if they are in block three -they are not worth the money.

A swinging night! from NikkyG, 25/06/14
Robbie did not disappoint ;-) As brilliant as ever and we loved all the tracks he performed. The only bad point was that from our seats we could not see the front of the runway which came out in front of the stage. I contacted eventim about this but have had no reply. Very disappointing as I really feel that our view of the show was very restricted. Had I known this, I would have opted for other seats or even standing.

Restricted View from Dissastified Punter, 25/06/14
So much for the meticulous planning than went into the arena. I could not see either of the two big screens which were situated at the side of the set nor could I see the majority of the set due to a ridiculously long speaker stack/lighting rig which was hanging from the ceiling. Also with regards the show itself did anyone else think Robbie was struggling with his voice? His dad actually sang much better than he.

Robbie excellent from KSW, 25/06/14
Robbie was at his entertaining best and couldnt fault him. Unfortunately the sound production let him down - there were several songs where the band drowned him out and the overall sound was distorted. Not convinced its just down to sound engineers having had similar experience at Dolly Parton - think the venue has a fundamental problem.

AWESOME Event!!! from Lewis Nicholson, 19/05/14
This was our seventh time seeing WWE and it was definitely one of our best times attending a WWE Event. The whole atmosphere on the night was great, we couldnt have asked for a better experience. Our seats were fantastic and we had a great view of the ring. Many fans were disappointed that Daniel Bryan was injured and couldnt attend but the highlight of the show for us was definitely watching Kane!!! Overall great night out, we will definitely be coming to see WWE again in Leeds someday!

Entertaining with a couple of negat... from Emm, 19/05/14
My first time at the new arena and I have to say I was impressed and happy that we now have an Arena fitting to the city of Leeds. Didnt know what to expect as it was my first time watching wrestling but the atmosphere was great and my son loved every minute of his birthday present. He was however extremely disappointed at Daniel Bryans absence as he is his favourite. The other downside was there wasnt any sound on our tier therefore for a novice I couldnt get the jist of the ring banter. Our seats on the third tier were budget driven and I thought the view and the length of the show was spot on for the price but thought it bizarre such a new venue didnt have the sound figured out.

Brilliant evening from Michael, 19/05/14
When I went to wwe in leeds I did not know what to expect as I had never been to wrestling before,but I must say it was a brilliant night from start to finish the atmosphere was electric at all times with numerous chants going and they was a wide variety of ages from young children and families to middle aged couples there also.there was some entertaining matches with the main characters winning which helped the atmosphere also.
