Visited the Sprint Center in May for the Billy Joel concert and in June for the Jimmy Buffett concert. DO sit on the lower level. DO not sit on the upper level. It is too warm on the upper level. The seats are not as spacious and there are no drink-holders upstairs. Also, arrive at your event with plenty of... More

We've attended a couple of concerts here and enjoyed them. However, if your seats are in the upper deck, they are a little more difficult to find. Parking can be tricky as there are many bars, restaurants and theaters in the area. Get there early.

My review title is reflective of the fact that this is about the only place you've going to go to see an inside concert or inside sporting event in Kansas City. I'm not sure that there's anything particularly good or bad about this venue. Parking can be a challenge but I think that's true for any inner-city venue. The Power... More

The acoustics were not the best and the temperature in the building was very stuffy and hot. People were very uncomfortable and sweaty for a climate controlled facility.

The Sprint Center is clean but lacks parking. Depending on which night you attend an event you may be forced to park miles away, sometime leaving you to catch a cab. You need to arrive early for the events because there is only one used entrance and it can be chaotic. However, once inside the venue is massive and so... More

Even the nose bleed section up top were good seats. Very well organized getting in and out. Restrooms were clean, drinks were expensive but that is expected.

The upper section stairs are VERY steep, and hard to climb. There were no ushers for our area either. People were coming in late, and sitting in the wrong section, or going in one side, only to find their seats all the way across the row. I would definitely have to think twice about going again.

We were the for Jimmy Buffett"s concert. The arena is nice, however once again the women are short changed on facilities. Long lines at every ladies room. It did get very warm in the arena as the evening progressed also, so might be time for some renovations.

The Sprint Center is the place to go for a large concert or a great basketball game. The parking is only $10 for most events, and it is really close. Not a bad seat in the house.

Loved being seated on the floor close to the stage. Could see very well while standing. Security on the floor was a little annoying. They kept bumping into me. One pulled out a long pocket knife to slit a beachball (aren't allowed). Freaked me out a bit that a person was carrying such a big knife right next to me.
