I think, this place is for sport events more, it does not work so well for the concerts. Though we had a front view, it was hard to see the concert. It is too huge, too crowded to enjoy the performance. The parking fees are locos. You have to come by train.

Been here many times in the platinum club. They have great dinners prior to the games. When going to sporting events, there are nice large screens so you can see close up also.

If you are going to visit the AAC for a music concert, think hard before shelling out good money for "music". If you strictly want to SEE the musicians, then it's not a bad venue. It is smaller than the seating plans you see. You want to sit as close to the ground as possible. There are seats super up... More

I have been to the American Airlines Center for several Dallas Mavericks games and I have enjoyed it every time. The hype and feel of the entire venue is clean, inviting, and proud. It has lots of amenities, it's easy to get around and there is not a bad seat in the house. I will say the seats are a... More

Have been here before, about 25 years ago. Place is pretty much the same except I don't quite remember all the panhandlers back then. They shake you down on every corner and at every landmark.

I have 't been to this center, but seeing how much they spent to build this out, they should offee a much better service, just like as all other worldwilde airlines : 1 free checked-in luggage. I just experienced to pay extra 25$ on a flight from New Orleans to Miami and as European I just think this is cheating... More

I love going to the Stars games at the AA center. There isn't a bad seat in the house. Sometimes the Stars can be great; othertimes, not so much. I prefer seating in the lower section....lower seats in the lower sections. Not on the end. The corners can be great fun!!!! Especially where the Stars girls come out! We especially... More

Fantastic place for big concerts and obviously mavericks basketball and star hockey games. Always check the online map for proper seats as it depends a lot on where the stage is. They do need to keep taco beuno open for all events as not much for vegetarians to eat.

It was a very nice arena. Saw a hockey game and had a lot of fun. The arena was clean and easy to get around. A lot of nice features. The employees were extremely polite and friendly. I can't wait to go back.
