The new Liverpool Arena, built on the site of the old Kings Dock, on the waterfront next to the Albert Dock Complex. It is sponsored by the local newspaper, the Liverpool Echo, and holds up to 10,000 people. Seen here in a test event last weekend, it is formally opened today (Saturday) with the first major concert for Liverpool's European Capital of Culture year, 2008.
At the far end is a new conference centre, sponsored by British Telecom. Both venues are heavily booked for the coming year. The building has been dubbed "the Scouse Bowl" by the locals
