Had a great experience watching the thunder for my first Nuba game. They beat the Suns convincingly and the atmosphere was electric with lots of things to do pre game and lots of food choices it's worth getting there early.

This is a great place for a concert or a Thunder basketball game. All seats are good seats and the sound system is really good. Parking is available next door at the Cox Center (except for Thunder game when it's strictly used by season ticket holders).

The seats at the Chesapeake are small, crowed, and overpriced; not just for basketball events, but for all events in the arena. The Thunder shop is nice though. Be prepared for construction and congestion when you're trying to park.

We came here for the Stevei Wonder concert & left happy. A live performance by a musical icon was enough to make us happy, but the arena contributed significantly as well. We purchased nosebleed seats in section 307, but were pleasantly surprised to learn upper level sections were closed for the evening so our tickets were automatically upgraded to our... More

Good mix of concerts. We have attended as a couple and as a family. Always a great time. I love having a spot so close to home. We used to drive to the bok center in tulsa. Thunder is our main reason for going :)

This is it! Loud city and exciting to watch Thunder games. The lightening bolts from the top and with Rumble the mascot banging the drum before games starting. It is exciting and the fans are the best! I have gone and will go to many more games. Watching Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook play is the best!!

My wife and I traveled to OKC from Dallas for the Foo Fighters concert and we were blown away by how nice all of the staff working at the venue were! We have been to concerts all over Dallas as well as venues across the country, and this was by far one of the best concert venues we have ever... More
