Impressive arena but seriously lacking staff. Toilets had massive leak so floor covered in water. Loads of people smoking inside the area which was disgusting and a hazard! Fantastic gig and area has potential to be so much more!

Great facilities, architecture, staff, logictics and anything else you want at a music venue, but worst sound experience you can have on a live concert. This venue was designed intending to have the sound speakers hanging from the ceiling. That way the acoustic is stellar....More

An interesting addition to the landscape. The MEO arena is a great contemporary building providing good space for large performances.

We saw AeroSmith here. What a fantastic venue with friendly, helpful staff. Well organised, tight security which made us feel secure in a venue which holds 20,000. Sound was great. Queues for refreshments moved quickly. No queues for toilets. We had booked Balcao 1 tickets....More

Worth a visit outside and inside for the architectural details, an amazing ceiling. But the worst acoustics I have ever found for a musical venue, strident reverberations, annoying echoes. It should rather be a sports' arena, one of the greatest.

Parque das Nacoes
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s
mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and

attractions and exhibits are still culturally and
artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll
explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping
center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car
ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the

They were when we went for Metallica although the very front row on balcony 2 wasn’t and we were able to sit together there (although it had a glass screen in front so viewing slightly restricted)
