After 20 of planning and North vs. South Yorkshire controversy, this 13,000 capacity venue finally put Leeds on the arena touring circuit when none other than 'the boss' Bruce Springsteen opened the curtains back in 2013.

Situated on Arena Way, First Direct Arena’s so-called super-theatre seating design means everyone sat inside gets a great view – so there’ll be no craning those stiff necks just to catch a glimpse of the band you’re there to see. On top of that, the arena boasts “high quality acoustics providing the best sound experience in the UK”, helping it win the title of 2014’s Best New Venue in the World at the Stadium Business Awards. Inside are a host of restaurants, merchandise stalls and bars serving ‘mega-pints,’ so you can drink twice as much for your queueing efforts.

The opening times for First Direct Arena vary depending on events. For box office opening times, see the First Direct Arena's website.
