The Metro Radio Arena Newcastle is one of the largest concert and exhibition venues in the North East of England and is owned and operated by SMG, who prides itself on employing local staff within its venues who know the area and its people, and using local suppliers and services to help support the local economy. The Metro Radio Arena has a strong commitment to the North East as a region, and is more than capable of supporting the very best in entertainment in this superb 40,000sq metre site.
The 11,000+ seater purpose built Metro Radio Arena Newcastle was the brainchild of former Animals stars, the late Chas Chandler and his partner in Park Arena Nigel Stanger. It opened in November 1995 with basketball, and the first concert, David Bowie, was on Thursday 7th December.
Since its opening, the Metro Radio Arena quickly established itself as a superb venue and major North East landmark, alongside the Tyne Bridge, Angel of the North and Hadrian's Wall. It has already played host to millions of visitors to concerts, exhibitions, conferences and Premier League Basketball.
Concerts - 11,000 +
Ice Shows- 5,500
Some of the biggest names in the entertainment world have paraded their talents, featuring the likes of: Oasis, Snow Patrol, Coldplay, Shirley Bassey, Disney on Ice, Wet Wet Wet, Phil Collins, Simply Red, Neil Diamond, Diana Ross, AC/DC, Elton John, Tom Jones, Cher, Michael Flately's Lord of the Dance and the internationally acclaimed Riverdance and Les Miserables.
The 40,000 square feet of exhibition and conference space is the largest under one roof in the North East and has hosted many prestigious events, including the BT AGM and the Northern Rock Building Society's Special meeting proposing their change to a plc.
