Motorpoint Arena Sheffield is an Ice Hockey, music and events venue that opened in 1991 under the name Sheffield Arena. In 2002 the name was changed to Hallam FM Arena, then it went back to Sheffield Arena in 2007, and in 2010 settled on its current name. In spite of this apparent identity crisis, it’s now renowned for its headlining shows and is a popular venue, with award-winning artists and groups such as Beyoncé, Oasis, Elton John, Britney Spears, Take That and One Direction having graced the stage. Comedians also perform here, with the likes of Miranda Hart, Lee Evans and Ricky Gervais selling out the arena. It is also great for children with over 260 Disney on Ice shows since the building opened, and they're still going strong!
