Industry experts have long lamented Edinburgh’s lack of suitable venues for major international acts – such as Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, Ariana Grande .Katy Perry  and Fleetwood Mac – many of whom choose to perform their Scottish tour dates in one of Glasgow’s four stand-out 

Two venue operators drew up blueprints for seven options – with arenas ranging in capacity from 7000 to 12,000 – but all were frozen due to a “very large funding gap”. Since then nothing else has been considered. We the people of Edinburgh Lothians and fife petition city of Edinburgh council to look back into developing a works class venue our city can be proud of we have various small venues that will never attract the big name artists 

we are the Athens of the North during the month of August, Edinburgh has maybe been too complacent,” 

“There is room for something else in Edinburgh and the city has been crying out for it for years.”
