We attended a WWE wrestling event at the arena and are attending another one this August. The seats we had were almost at the top, but a great view of the event was still there. There doesn't appear to be any obstacles that would block any view. The seats were comfortable.

Can't lie, I had pretty good seats. I wouldn't want to be in the 200/300s in the back or upper deck though. There were screens to see the artist but definitely worth paying a little more for closer. Concessions were pricey as you'd expect but at least they offered more than just Bud/Bud Light. Much easier to Uber in than... More

We've taken in some hockey games in the arena as well as some different shows and gotta say that we've loved it each time. The place is laid-out well and easy to get around. The lights / sound set-up is great. We'll keep going back! The only downside that I saw had nothing to do with the Arena--it's more for... More

We were here to see the Eagles in concert. We stayed overnight at a hotel down the street and used hotel transportation to get to the arena. Prevented us from having to fight the parking crowds. The arena was large, but the sound was excellent. Although our seats were in the upper level, we could still see and hear very... More

I go here multiple times a year for concerts and my favorite, Lightning games! The arena truly is electric during hockey season! Best Hockey Arena in the NHL!

really no bad seats. Even in the upper deck you are still close enough to the action on the floor, and the high def jumbotron is right in front of you.
