Resorts World Arena in the 90s

We're dedicating each day in the run up to our birthday to an iconic era of live events which we've hosted here in Birmingham. Yesterday we took a trip to the 80's (which was incredible) but today, it's all about crimped hair, jelly shoes and CD Walkmans as we step back to the 1990's!
