The newest – and largest – addition to Leeds' impressive range of venues, the FirstDirect Arena has been built on a revolutionary design that allows you a great view of the stage from wherever you sit.

Unlike most other arenas built in the 20th century in order to accommodate indoor sport as well as entertainment, the FirstDirect Arena puts the stage first, with a crescent seating layout meaning that even those at the back are barely any further away than those standing in the stalls.

Although officially opened by Elton John in September 2013, the first artist to play the 13,500 capacity venue was none other than The Boss Bruce Springsteen, while artists who have since graced the stage include everyone from Leonard Cohen to Miley Cyrus and homegrown heroes Alt-J. Comedians including Miranda Hart have also performed there, while wrestling fans have enjoyed a stop-off by the WWE on a yearly basis. [William Gunn]
