Andrea Bocelli was amazing!!!

Arena was great, but arrive early as traffic was a nightmare before and after the show. I used Uber or would have been late trying to get to a parking lot with so much traffic.

My wife took me to see Andrea Bocelli on a beautiful Tampa evening. This is a wonderful concert venue. Acoustics on the floor were supberb. Andrea Bocelli was simply spectacular! A once in a lifetime event. I wept like a baby through half the show. Highly recommend seeing a concert at Amalie Arena and if you ever get the chance... More

The Amalie Arena was easy to get to. The police did an excellent job in directing traffic before and after the show. We saw the Circus and it was easy to buy tickets at the door. The arena is very nice and clean.

We make it a point to visit at least 1 away game a year, so we've been to a lot of hockey arenas. I gotta say Amalie Arena is by far the most impressive. When you arrive into the plaza you know without a doubt you've arrived to an event! The outdoor space of the arena is jaw dropping impressive... More

Went for a Pittsburgh Penguins vs Lightnibg game. Had 10 people in 300 level and we all enjoyed the seats and view. Good, fun crowd and no one was rude to us being from another city. As in all arenas beer was too expensive but that is the case everywhere. We LOVED going to Ferg's before the game. Enjoyed.

We watched the Lightning vs the Penguins and what a game...the hockey was fabulous! We rode our bikes and discovered the arena has valet parking for bikes! The arena is spotlessly clean, the employees very friendly and the food, oh the food! We recommend you eat at one of the food trucks at the arena before the game or wait... More

We sat it section 302 so comments about the arena are reflected on where we sat. The banners covered the side screen so we could not see. The lights set covered center screen showing special shots that went along with the songs and had scenes with Andrea Bocelli. The small screen to the right was not adequate from our view.... More

We went to a hockey game there and enjoyed the game despite being WAY up in the seating area near the top. Great sight lines. Someone took I'll in the stands near us and we're helped quickly.

We traveled to Tampa in January to see the Pittsburgh Penguins vs. the Tampa Bay Lightning. It was our first trip to the area, and we were excited to visit a warm-weather team. The atmosphere and area around the arena was lovely. Places to eat and drink, the Riverwalk, and Channelside are all right there. If you go to a... More
