The ICC Theatre is a new venue in Darling Harbour that replaced the old Entertainment Centre. This is our first concert here and while we got “nose bleed seats” the sound was brilliant and the show was outstanding. Easy to get to by public transport,...More

What an awful venue. Absolutely no atmosphere and the most uncomfortable seats. Herded in but dozens of security staff. It did seem that there was a good view from all seats.

We went there for the home show. The place is great as you can also enjoy other places in Darling Harbour. The place is clean and tidy and it is a great place for the home show.

Perfect locations but will charge you an arm and a leg if you park here. Best to prk across the road in wilson carpark. After the show you can have dinner at the wharf .

We'd watched this venue emerge from the ground over the past few years and the Bob Dylan concert was our first look inside. The patrons were dutifully managed in and out of the building by many security personnel but they did their work well and...More
