    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!

    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

    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.

    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

    Tired old venue. Expensive food/drink. Avoid.

    Helen Hodgkinson · May 10, 2012

    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

    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.

    Whatever you do don't park in the official car park - look behind the discovery museum!
