East to get to, great stadium in Auckland for all types of concerts, went to Cher and the stadium was packed. Definately would go back to the Spark Arena again, no problems with crowd, no queues

Great venue for concerts, easy to the stage if your close to the front of the standing area. The security team was super friendly and handed out water when asked for it.

Great place to catch a show, plenty of food and drink, doesn't appear to be any bad seats so buy with confidence.
