We've been to lots of concerts at the Sage, and it's a fabulous concert venue, which caters to all musical tastes. Only problem is that it's easy to miss the turning off the Tyne Bridge.

During the year we visit The Sage maybe 10/12 times! The building is just beautiful! The acoustics in Hall 1 are just magnificent and if you visit the smaller Hall it becomes so much more intimate! The only thing which annoys me is the price...More

Hi, The screen is at the back of the stage so it's not the same as sitting in the front row at the pictures. However, you may get a better view of the screen by sitting further back. Many thanks,
