Ed Sheeran concert venue was excellent, organised well considering the large number of people. Easy access. No problem with sound quality and leaving the venue no problems. Within easy walk of city centre.

Been for rugby games & lastly Ed Sheeran. Excellent venue. Does get chilly though. Annoys me so much they take lids off bottles. No parking or always closed off so far everytime I've been. Lots of toilets & food stands both of which move quickly....More

Love the fact that it's got a roof. Great atmosphere for a concert. So fast to get 35,000 people seated, and even faster to get them out at the end of the concert. Most impressed. Best stadium in NZ by far.

Attended the Ed Sheehan concert in early April. Well staffed, ample food and beverage outlets and the roof means no worries about weather. Centrally located, walk or a short taxi ride.
