If you're in New York and you have a New York Pass and are a die hard sports fan, you have to do this tour. This tour shows you the great moments of New York sports history from the Knicks and the Rangers and other major events and concerts as well. Our tour guide, Alex, was wonderful and had so... More

We had the pleasure recently of seeing Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden and it was a great experience on many levels. Seeing an icon in an iconic venue was a privilege. Sounds and visibility were both great. Would love to go back someday for a sporting event.

We did the all access tour whilst here, we are so glad we did it. It is a massive massive place, we are gutted that the ice hockey season started as we were coming home. Otherwise we would have watched this. The tour was very informative, the speaker Brian, was a funny & nice guy. Kept us up to date... More

Great concert. It was not just him playing and singing. He told stories and ancadotes throughout which really gave the show a personal touch. Billy even played guitar for one of his staff as they performed a song from AC/DC. It was great. Not a cheap night out but a great time.

This was not on my list 'to do' but my husband wanted to have a look which led to us taking a tour of the stadium which was so interesting. I am so pleased I was talked into this

Saw Billy Joel here last week. What a performance and what a concert venue. MSG is a world class arena. Only complaint was the floor seats were really cramped when seated but once Billy came on the seat was no longer needed as everyone was on their feet and people worked out into the aisles freeing up some space.
