This was my first visit to the notoroious venue. Was great, quick entry, high levels of security. Cleanliness wasn't grey, very very sticky floors but otherwise fantastic.

I took my teenage daughter to see All Saints and the staff were very accomodating. For a predominantly adult venue the service to accomodate those 14 and above was very good.

I was at Rock City when the gas attack happened on 16/11/18. Considering Lil Pump is a huge and controversial name, security should've been tight and on alert, but I came with two giant rucksacs filled to the brim, and neither were searched; I could've...More

Saw Richard Ashcroft here .It was my first visit to this venue but I would definitely go back. We got right to the front. Staff helpful. It was a very cold night and the only downside was the venue didn't feel warm inside.

There’s a few seats upstairs at the back but you can’t see the stage from them, aside from that there isn’t. I think if someone is disabled you can phone ahead and they might put a seat at the front upstairs.

Depending on how close to the front you want to be, and how popular the band is, 2 hours could be a decent wait time (: though it really does depend on those few factors!
