Swansea Arena

It does exactly what it says on the tin. If it's not about football then it belongs in here for discussion. Once again we ask that you respect your fellow posters.

I'm sure they did their research on which acts/bands would be likely to come before they went ahead with ploughing money into it.

Right?
I don't think bands will be the main focus, and unless you like ABBA tribute shows you'll be disappointed. Esports is growing and is huge in quite a few places. It could be a very good venue for things like that as well as conventions like ComiCon. Give me those over second rate bands any day. :D
Could they do something like ComiCon? Not sure what the set up is like inside, but it’s not really an expo-type of place is it?

E-sports is a good shout though.

I haven't seen what it's going to be like inside was just something I thought of

Never understood that. We have roads and a train station.
Yeah but it’s usually pointless then coming past Cardiff when they’ve got better arenas/venues.
Ewe need to have a word with your buddies Cheap Trick to get a booking there

It does a bit look like a larger Newport Centre but the sides are kind of like the MotorPoint /CIA. I reckon with the seating out downstairs you'd get an extra 1000 people taking capacity to 4500 maybe.

Too big for Cardiff to play there then, and the roof is too low. 😉
