Ben Williams is the manager of Leeds Arena and promises a diverse range of events at the venue.
The first tickets have been sold for a concert at the new Leeds Arena. Fans queued from half past five in the morning to be the first to buy tickets for pop band JLS who have included the venue in their 2013 Arena tour.
The group will perform in Leeds in December, but they won't be the first act to tread the boards on the brand new stage. Details of the official launch are top secret but organisers hope to confirm who'll perform in the next few months. Victoria Whittam spoke to the very first customers.
