Excellent Service But Bigger Arena ... from John & Christine, 10/12/14
Excellent Service from ordering the tickets online right through to all information re parking nearby etc, our only complaint would be that the arena screens were just too small which was a pity, ( I forgot to bring my Binoculars ! lol ). Didnt get Emails / Info on Michael Buble though, as would have gone if Id have known. Excellent Sevice, will use again, Many Thanks for a great expeience.

Although Leeds wouldnt have normally been my first choice as we live near Preston Lancs we had a really great time at the First Direct Arena. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Bryan Adams was terrific an night to remember for sure

Immense Concert from Polly, 03/12/14
Bryan and his band were amazing. His voice is so much better in the flesh (as it were). He was so lovely too, interacting with the audience in a very understated but funny way. We loved it.

Great show from Mitty, 01/12/14
James gave a great performance, although his use of bad language was not necessary and was commented upon by many at the event. The Dunwells gave a good show and we would see them again. Seats 17 and 18 on row F black 213 had bad visibility as the safety rails completely blocked the view of the artists. This seat should be flagged as restricted visibility.

Absolutely Superb from Shirley, 01/12/14
I really enjoyed the concert, the stage and lighting effects were superb. James performed with so much energy and passion in his songs. He has a wonderful sense of humour. I loved every minute of it, it was great singing along and the entire audience were on their feet for the last few songs. He ran up the aisle and down the next one during the performance and he touched my hand has he ran past, which was magical for me. I love his songs and his voice is amazing. A very special evening.

Reckless Tour from Jason, 01/12/14
I thought this concert would be pretty good - I was wrong - it was very, very good. Excellent tracks from a fantastic back catalogue, sound was spot on. Good use of lighting and video screens, very professional presentation. Bryan really good at connecting with the audience. This band rocks!!!!!

Brilliant show! from Daveo, 01/12/14
We had a fantastic time at the arena watching Bryan Adams last Tuesday he played several tracks from his restless album during the first half of the show and then proceeded to play all his hit records from his extensive back catalogue. He had the audience cheering and singing along to most of his most popular tracks. A great night for everyone.

Awesome!! from Rachael Marshall, 01/12/14
This has to be one of the best concerts I have ever been to! The sound quality and the venue ( First Direct Arena in Leeds) was superb! Bryan was absolutely amazing, he never stopped, he completely rocked. However, the crowd were the most boring I have seen. My friend and I had to move seats as no one else wanted to stand. I know we had seats, but this was a ROCK concert, and I cant understand how anyone can remain sat down when he is rocking those songs out! Thankfully we were able to move, otherwise this wouldve completely spoiled our experience. I cant wait to see him perform again, such talent!

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.

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!!!!
