I've been to hockey games, concerts, and a monster truck rally here. This is a great place for any kind of event. Good view from any seat. Area roads and (event) traffic control make it easy to get to and from the arena. There is also plenty of parking... just bring an extra arm and leg to pay for the... More

Obviously, this venue books some shows/sporting events/etc that on your "must see" list, but I would REALLY consider how badly you want to go before buying your ticket, because this place will DRAIN your wallet and act like they're doing you a favor. First, they stick it to you with hefty parking fees. And they don't even scale those fees... More

We love going to PNC Arena--except for the outrageous parking fees. For concerts, we try to park nearby and walk to the arena. For hockey games, we buy the parking passes by the season and don't pay quite as much. The PNC Arena is a great venue for hockey, basketball, concerts, and other events. The staff is generally helpful and... More

Great Place to See a Concert or Sporting Event!!! However, parking has gone from $5-10 to $10-25 depending on the event; so be aware. There used to be a free parking lot across the street but the State Fairgrounds now charge $5 or $10 per event to park there. Concessions are impressive, but they are expensive. An ice cream cone...

I love the arena, it's very convenient to park and go in where you're seats are. It has lots of options as far as beverages and stuff like that. It can be a bit pricey but that's the nature of living in Raleigh. The staff is awesome & very helpful!

My family visited here to see Sesame Street Live. This was our first visit to PNC as we had just moved to the area. The show was great, but the arena was very nice. The staff were super friendly and there were in great supply. There was someone at every turn to help you in finding restrooms, seats, etc. We... More

Nice arena. Seats are tight, but tolerable for a few hours. There is tons of parking and lots of bathrooms.
