We are celebrating 40 years of Resorts World Arena

On the 5th December, we officially turn 40-years-old…and what a ride it’s been so far. We’ve been kicking it here in Birmingham since 1980 and although this year has been one to forget, we’ve had 39 before it that were anything but dull.


Join us this week as we dedicate each day in the build up to our birthday to an iconic era of live events. From Queen in the 80’s to Elton to the 90’s, Beyoncé in the 00’s to Adele in the 10’s – we’re heading out on the ultimate trip down memory lane.

You can get involved too by sending us your photos and memories from the over the years via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. C’mon, let’s get nostalgic!


On Tuesday we'll be talking about the 80's, Wednesday the 90's, we'll swing by the 00's on Thursday, before wrapping things up on Friday with a journey through the 10's. Then, on Saturday, we can sit back, relax and stick our feet up - I mean, what else should we be doing on our 40th birthday!?


Whether you've been rockin' it here with legendary bands for the last four decades or you attended your first ever gig last year, we want to hear from you and everyone in between!


We wanna hear about your favourite shows, the best live performances, the most unforgettable moments, photos, blurry selfies, beer stained t-shirts, sepia ticket stumps, we want it all! Get sending them in and we'll be sharing the best ones!


Here's how you can get involved...
