I went to the Queen + Adam Lambert concert which was excellent! However, this building is ugleeeey! But it matches the ugliness of Penn Station. Sadly, this is the first impression many 1st time visitors get. While exiting the the building after the show half the buildings exits/entrances were closed and guests funneled to one side of the building AND... More

In NY early July and wanted to see a show/concert and saw that Billy Joel was in residence at MSG, performing once a month, so we booked it from the UK. For those of you from the UK, Madison Square Garden is just like the O2 in London. Lots of seating all around, plenty of toilets and places to get... More

Saw a college game here so the seat prices were fairly cheap. Basically a standard arena. No different for a lot of arenas except that it is Madison Square Gardens in New York! Worth a visit to get the feel of the arena and to say you have been. There is a tour but it was not available whilst we... More

Been to way too many hockey arenas/concert facilities to care but my little guy wanted to tour the Garden so we did. Tour guide was excellent and we learned about some history of the first gardens. I didn't enjoy it as it was not a subject of interest. Unless you are a die hard - save the time. A rink... More

I had the pleasure of seeing an event in the world famous Madison Square Garden. The site lines were amazing and very clean. The building is very well maintained with cup holders in every seat. I will see future events here when in town.

Wasn't really worth the money for the tour, unless you're a die hard Knicks or Rangers fan. Other than that it's nothing that would blow you away.

Great venue -- very well maintained. Saw Michael Buble here with a soldout crowd. Seats were comfortable, not a lot of knee room, though. Each seat had its own cup holder, so that was nice.

Great concert!! The 20,000 seat sold-out crowd had a blast in the new venue. Be prepared to stand the entire time if you have a floor seat.
