I have been trying to attend a performance at the Sage for some time. The location is in a fabulous location and the Lord of the Dance did it and the venue proud. Seating arrangement made it easy to see all the action comfortable too.

We were staying at Malmaison on the other side of the Tyne and for once decided to walk across the Gateshead Millennium Bridge so that we could have a look at the Sage close up. IT was well worth the diversion on the way into the centre of Newcastle as the Sage looks just as good close up as it... More

Excellent building, location, facilities and riverside location. Lovely to be inside and look out over Tyne & Newcastle. NOISY Riverdance/Lord of the Dance Concert - why the tremendous volume.? Do they think we are all profoundly deaf! Lovely location and facilities with good access/car parking.

We were visiting Newcastle and enjoyed the double Beethoven concert with Lars Vogt. Had seats in the upper circle that were excellent. We could see and hear well. We had a pre concert meal that was well cooked and reasonable.

We were there for a concert by Loreena Mckennett. The venue is really well designed. It's well signposted if you travel by car and there is a car park with plenty of spaces (although at £4.50, it's not cheap). The venue also has an arrangement with the metro so you could travel there and back from any metro station for... More

Saw Mike and the Mechanics here and the sound in the auditorium was excellent. Good staff and very comfortable seats make this venue a must when your band is in town!

Really surprised by this place. From the outside it looks like a work of art. From the inside, you get clean conveniences, good conference facilities and even a stage where you can hire bands

The sage has several halls of differing size. On this visit the gig we saw was in hall 2 (which is much more compact than hall 1). It worked well for the band we saw. We were on level 3 but you still feel close to the stage. There are a quite a few steps but the is also a... More
