There are many reasons to visit Leeds, but one of the biggest draws for many visitors are the gigs and music in Leeds – and it all happens at the Leeds First Direct Arena. There are, of course, lots of different venues to enjoy live music and events in Leeds, but the Arena, being one of the biggest and best, attracts the top names from around the world.
Music at the First Direct Arena this summer
Live music enthusiasts are in for a real treat this summer, with artists and bands such as Olly Murs (20th April), Pharrell Williams (12th June), John Legend (1st July), and exciting newcomer Ben Howard (23rd April) all headlining the Leeds Arena this summer. Between June and October, you can rock out with 5 Seconds of Summer, Fall Out Boy and rock legends Fleetwood Mac, as well as enjoying the incredible voices of Bette Midler, Neil Diamond, The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons – not all in one show, sadly, although that would be sensational!
