As far as a concert venue goes it is pretty good. The tiered seating gives good views even if you are not directly in front and have to crane your neck one way throughout. Still that’s better than the flat floor in front of the...More

I've been to many concerts here at Rod Laver, it's a great, broad venue and have amazing sound. Have sat/stood in several spots and in my opinion the best place to be is on the floor. It's where I've been able to see the most.

Went to this arena in November and when we got there it was under construction and no one can get in, from the outside it looks good, once it’s finished it will look the part, so the advice is check it’s open before you go

You can get on to the Rod Laver Arena website, which will give you the option to put in your dates, and then chose what type of tour you wish to do, and gives the prices also. I hope that this helps :)
