    I think I did an amateur drama thing in there when I was a kid or something.

    IIRC, the floor is carpeted. I imagine they'll have to replace it after the gig. It's a big hall, unusual venue though.

    I think I saw the Beastie Boys in there many moons ago. It's a big cow shed.

    [trivia]That was my first non local gig way back in 1995. Blues Explosion and DJ Hurricane supported. [/trivia]

    The venue is about as sexy as its full name of The Balmoral Conference Center name suggests.

    I saw Ozzy Ozbourne somewhere in the King's Hall complex in 1989ish but not actually the Kings Hall, I think it was the bit out the back of it. If it's the same place, it was pretty sound.

    The place has the acoustics of a baked bean can.

    I've heard the sound depends on who's running it, Aitken set up back boards etc... and all sorts, apparently wonderland don't bother... but that story is from a few years ago

    edit; ...but yeah didn't hear anything about this until last thursday there! bit stupid not hyping this up to be huge, as it will obviously go down amazingly with metallers
