With a seated capacity of 32,500 and a concert capacity of 40,000 our stadium bowl is attracting considerable interest from promoters and UK governing bodies across the UK and Europe.
Both Bon Jovi and the Red Hot Chili Peppers chose the Ricoh to be the only West Midlands date for their respective UK tours.
The Ricoh Arena's stadium bowl experience was further enhanced in summer 2009 after hosting three sell-out nights of Take That with their Circus Live tour which saw nearly 150,000 fans through the gates which was closely followed by an Oasis sold out gig. Both Pink (2010) and Kings Of Leon (2011) have also entertained fans.
The stadium bowl has unparalleled disabled access and is served by bar and food outlets which offer quality easily accessible refreshments for customers.
Access for production is easily accessible via two main tunnels on to the pitch. A conveniently placed bone yard is located in close proximity to these entrance tunnels and our back of house facilities are able to fulfil and meet all artist and production requirements.
May 2012 saw the Ricoh Arena host Coldplay on their Stadium tour which sold out in 90 minutes.
In addition to hosting world class artists, the stadium bowl is home to Coventry City Football Club. It has also hosted high profile sporting events such as the Heineken Cup Semi Finals, EDF Energy Cup and in 2012, 12 matches of London 2012 Olympic football were played over 8 days, attracting over 250,000 visitors to the venue.
