Back in the 90's, the arena was the idea of Chas Chandler, the charismatic bassist of 'The Animals' and the producer behind the great Jimi Hendrix Experience. With David Bowie first gracing the stage, the Metro Radio Arena has a rich musical background.
Today, the venue still attracts millions of visitors with huge concerts, high-octane sports and industry leading conference and exhibition events.
