Posted on 24 Jul 2015

SMG’s UK Arenas are amongst the busiest in the world, according to industry bible Pollstar.

SMG’s three UK arenas all placed within the top thirty busiest arenas in the world, according to Pollstar’s mid-year reports.

Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle came in at number 27, Leeds’ first direct Arena at number 19 and Manchester Arena once again secured its spot as the second busiest venue in the world. 
The first direct Arena in Leeds only opened in 2013, but has quickly established itself as an important venue on the touring dates of leading artists and is now within the top five busiest venues in the UK.

Manchester Arena and Metro Radio Arena both celebrate their 20th anniversary in 2015 and Pollstar’s latest figures show how important both venues still are within their regions.

All three arenas have a busy calendar still to come in 2015, with shows from Wet Wet Wet, Simply Red, Michael McIntyre and more.
