Celine Dion's concert at the Rod Laver Arena would have to be one of the best concerts we have been to … up there with the Eagles. What an incredible voice and obviously a beautiful / sensitive person. Also, the support act French Canadian singer...More

We've been to quite a few events at Rod Laver Arena, and event management has generally been good, but last night's performance by Celine Dion was severely impacted by the lousy approach to patrons who paid over $400/ticket. We arrived early, but missed the entire...More

We have used The Loft the past three visits to Rod Laver (Madonna, Pink and Katy Perry) and each time the experience has unfortunately become worse. The "exclusive" food menu is overpriced for what it is, you'd be better off lining up with everyone else...More

It was easy to get in to the area where we were seated. Although we were side of stage, we still had good vision, although there were only a few large screens. The one nearest us was directly above us so we weren't able to...More

Great place to visit for events and the atmosphere is great. if a hot day with open roof i suggest taking shade or vice versa for rainy days. Tennis is hosted here and well worth the visit.

What an amazing venue. It was quick and easy to get in, toilet cues were not too bad. Seats were comfortable and we had cup holders so no one kicked over drinks. Arena is not too big, so it did not feel like you were...More

You can get on to the Rod Laver Arena website, which will give you the option to put in your dates, and then chose what type of tour you wish to do, and gives the prices also. I hope that this helps :)
