We drove from Birmingham for a concert, the arena had a parking area right across the street, so that was convenient. Anyone who complains about having to pay $20 to park aparrently hasn't been to any type of entertainment event in any city lately. So that was no big deal, we went to the area beside the arena that contained... More

This is a great arena for any event, concert or sporting. The staff is top notch. Don't plan on eating or drinking cheap though!

Loved Amalie Arena compared to others. Went here for the Imagine Dragons concert and as an avid sports fan I loved the atmosphere of the outside as it was still decorated as the Lightning were playing a home game. The arena was clean and large enough for people to roam without being bunched together. My only complaint was food and... More

Easily one of the best Arenas in the NHL and a great place to watch a concert. The arena is easy to get to, has great amenities, and always attracts all-star talent. If you're in town during hockey season go see a Bolts game, there's not a bad seat in the house.

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
