People tend to check in during these times:
Food and drink isn't cheap here
Although the staff are great help & do have everything under control when in the room outside the stage I wouldn't recommend going early as it stinks of chips, beer and doughnuts !!
Queue at bar often long. Buy the double pints.
Went to see Nicki Minaj here. It was a pretty intimate arena, small compared to others. On the plus it means we were closer to the stage. Arrange a lift. Don't even attempt to get a taxi!
-take your own food
The Metro Radio Arena is a fantastic venue in Newcastle city centre and hosts many of the top name performers for people of all ages e.g. from Dolly Parton to Disney on ice
I saw Ed Sheeran here and it was absolutely epic
Like listening to music in a gigantic biscuit tin. Worst acoustics ever.
The acoustics are terrible. Like listening to music inside of a gigantic biscuit tin.
Seen Thirty Seconds To Mars & You Me At Six Here
You can have a bottle of water but they won't let you keep the lid.....
Parking is a nightmare.
Absolute shambles when it came to queueing. Queued all day to get to the front at blink and then they split the queue into two doors and let the other door open first. Security were assholes too
Sing. A. Song.
Tired old venue. Expensive food/drink. Avoid.
Pointless queuing up early to get to the front as have two separate queues and open up doors at separate times. So people who turned after you at the other queue has a high chance of getting to front

The big drinks are £2.50 but by the time the show starts you'll be sick of holding it, people tip them on the floor. Share a drink with a few straws!
Park over the road. It's called the Arena Car Park but it's not the official one
fab arena a must to visit
Excellent service and utilities :)
Get a few drinks in you b4 hand! The beer is well expensive!
Good venue for sport or concerts but smell of doughnuts and beer not good (unless u like beer and doughnuts!)
Don't get the nachos. Burnt cheese sauce.
If you go straight to the box office and pay cash you avoid the HEFTY booking fees incurred through paying by card.
Check in here under MOTC Promotions for our shows :)
Went to the UK Wedding Show and it stunk of chips and stale beer. Not the place for wedding shows!
Whatever you do don't park in the official car park - look behind the discovery museum!
