First Direct Arena – events this summer

Since the First Direct Arena opened its doors in September 2013, it’s welcomed a host of big names in entertainment, giving Leeds residents the opportunity to enjoy events of a scale that the city was previously unable to cater for.

The largest venue in the area, the First Direct Arena, is continuing in its fast established tradition of hosting some of the biggest names in music this summer. Here are our picks of what’s on in June and July…
