What to Expect in 2016!

Okay, so 2015 was a pretty awesome year for us here at the Barclaycard Arena - but we may just top it in 2016 with what we've got in store, check it out!


First up in January we’ve got this man


Throughout the month we’ve also got the BBL Cup Final, Strictly Come Dancing Live, The Libertines, Jason Derulo and TNA Wrestling! What a way to start 2016, right?


We’re declaring February as the ROCK month with three huge rock shows heading to our arena. FebROCKry… okay, perhaps that doesn’t work, but seeing the Carnival of Madness, All Time Low and Foals certainly does work!



Whether you love sport, pop, rock or R&B, March has something for everyone! We kick off the month with two back to back sporting events with the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas First Round and Yonex All England Open Badminton Championships… we think these events will bring some “racket” to the arena… get it? Racket… this joke is as good as it gets!  

Right, back to the shows, we’ve also got Joe Bonamassa, a-ha and The 1975 for your air guitar fix, Ellie Goulding and the amazing Mariah Carey for you pop lovers and the legend Janet Jackson bringing the R&B vibe to Birmingham!


There’s no signs of slowing down as we head into April with NINE huge events heading to the Barclaycard Arena. Look out for the likes of Years & years, Muse, Hans Zimmer, WWE Live Wrestlemania Revenge, Peter Kay’s Dance For Life, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Betway Premier League Darts, Dixie Chicks AND Harlem Globetrotters… and breathe, told you there’s a lot going on.



You may like what we’ve got coming up this Spring. We’ve currently got three massive shows taking over our arena this month with UB40 ft Ali Campbell, Astro & Mickey, The Sessions at Abbey Road and James all coming to Brum!

Keep a look out at all our listings as we’ll be adding more and more shows throughout the year.

June & July

Usually the Summer is a nice time to wind down, kick back and relax in the sun…you can still do that, but you’ve also gotta come check out these sizzling events.

Funny-man Bill Bailey, pop rocker Busted, the legendary Jeff Lynne’s ELO and the one and only Lionel Richie all bring the heat to our arena this Summer!
