Besides hosting the first tennis grand slam each year, this stadium is also well used for concerts. Facilities and entertainment options are top notch

Went to see Pink perform at Rod Laver Arena for Pink's last Australian show. The pre show VIP party was great, the atmosphere inside the Arena was fantastic. Show was totally awesome. Hopefully the refurbishment out front will be completed soon.

As stated in previous reviews, I cannot fault the Celine Dion concert. She was brilliant, the set up was brilliant, we were towards the back and had no issues seeing her. The venue itself is quite good. However...getting in and out was horrific. We went...More

We've been to quite a few events at Rod Laver Arena, and event management has generally been good, but last night's performance by Celine Dion was severely impacted by the lousy approach to patrons who paid over $400/ticket. We arrived early, but missed the entire...More
