Iron Maiden paperless, Block 101

Love this arena, been so many times to so many different concerts and never disappointed. Because the arena isn't too large you get a great view wherever you are and it's a great atmosphere.

I went to see Iron Maiden here ,the venue is dated ,tatty and needs a major update. It's dirty poor choice of lager the only choice was Carlsberg which is like drinking washing up water. Most of the security staff were teenagers and my rucksack didn't get searched , which in the current climate is beyond belief. Having been to... More

The Sheffield Arena can be easily reached by tram. At the entrance people are put into different queues (according to ticket) and everything should go rather smooth - when I was there even the staff didn't have a good overview on the queues and it got a little messed up. There are no lockers or cloakrooms, so be sure not... More

This is a very good venue, although the cost for car parking has been increased excessively ~ it used to be £5, but is now £7 if you book on line in advance or £10 on the day of the event. If you use the Park and Ride at Meadowhall (which is free of charge) and get the tram to... More

Went to sea Rod Stewart. Got seats on floor level and had to stand up to even just see his head. Never expected the need for this after paying £160 for 2 tickets. Wife had high heels on , if known would have put suitable footwear on.

We bought Ticketmaster O2 presale seats for Iron Maiden and these were paperless, which lead to some delay in getting into the arena as checking paperwork, ID & credit card took some time at the doors. We had parking pre-booked at the arena and this went smoothly. There are places to eat just across the road from the arena. We... More

This was my first visit to Sheffield Arena, and probably my last! Parking was ok but at £10 a bit steep (just a field!) We were about 45 min early so thought no problem, grab a drink and bight from the bar! Wrong!! This place is so inadequately set up to deal with the volume of people on a sell... More

Went to see Micky Flanagan. This arena cannot cope when it's full. There are so few toilets and drink/food outlets, and the queues for all of these were ridiculous. I felt sorry for women, the queue for the one set of toilets in the Blue block was just crazy. Even queuing for the gents, and the crazy state of the... More

Went to see Micky Flanagagan but night was ruined because of greedy management keeping bars open throughout the show & disorganisation, with ineffective staff & lack of announcements. Micky was late on due to people being late to seats, then not content with drinks they'd bought, selfish people were constantly up & out seats to the bar during the show!!... More
