Nice view and well organized. Full of fast foods (extremely expensive) but no heathy food. The view and the concert was amazing though.

We were amazed at the size of the arena. We had great seats two rows up from the main floor - which provided a good view of the stage and catwalk. Dislike: the attendants were rude. The job can be accomplished without that bossy attitude.

Have been there for numerous basketball games and actually attended the first rock concert (the Eagles) that they had when it first opened. Easy parking, or you can take the DART train and get dropped off right there. A great time, no matter what the event is.

This sporting facility is awesome. Whether it is an NBA game, NHL game, or a concert, you will not be dissapointed one bit by the atmosphere. This facility is very easy to find and very easy to get to, even if you are walking to this facility. I am amazed with how many food options there are here at the... More

If you have some time to kills between flights at DFW, take the time to see the CR Smith Museum...you can actually stand inside a jet engine, and they have kid-friendly exhibits that detail the long history of American Airlines...

This is a perfect venue for seeing a Mavericks game, but a little too big for a concert. We didn't have the greatest seats so the music was not the best sound quality. See a game its awesome not a concert!

Don't forget to have a drink at Havana cigar bar before or after the game. Great place to people watch when you go to the center for an event.

Been here numerous occasions for concerts, if you know where to park it is an easy in and out so be careful to map out the streets and know where you are going. Once inside well organized, sound is always excellent and great seats for viewing with high screens for additional views. Good choice for concerts.
