The big daddy of Manchester venues, this is the largest indoor arena in Europe and one of the world's busiest venues, with a capacity of 21,000
Mainstream is the name of the game here, with sporting events from the likes of World Wrestling Entertainment slotting into the spaces between Kasabian, Dolly Parton, Alfie Boe and Mrs Brown.
It's a typical arena set-up with bars and merchandise in the outer shell and the main hall within. Elbow manage always to fill the place with love, Pet Shop Boys with spectacle and Morrissey with adoration, so it's worth splashing out on the higher priced seats if it's someone you really, really love, or you'll be relying on screens to make out who's on stage.
