Saw his NYC concert. Really enjoyed. Was well done with big monitors. You didn't miss anything happening on stage even though we were sitting on the upper level. He did a great show in the NYC and had 6 encore songs. Heather Hedley was wonderful as well as all the other people that were with him in concert. in the... More

Had a wonderful time hers, great couples/family occasion. Food/drink excellent but not cheap!! Foreign tourists don't forget your passport if you want booze.

Caught a Knicks/Mavs game here and it did not disappoint. We were high up but the view was great! It desn't appear to have a bad seat in the place. For such an old building, it looked new and was very clean. It also was very easy to get to from the subway.

Excellent!! One of the best concerns we've been to. Show started on time, opening act was good and only played for 45 minutes. Billy Joel's voice is perfect and he sang all our favourite songs. Show is entertaining and energetic - its amazing he hasn't released an album in 20 years! In terms of MSG - Facility is clean, bathrooms... More

We went to the Garden to see Andrea Bocelli and it was fantastic. This was our first time their and we were worried about how we would get out with 18,000 people in attendance since our seats were "noise bleed". Had no problem leaving. We will go back again.

While in NYC we took the opportunity to watch the NYR v MIN at Madison square garden and were blown away with the experience. Very clean and smart arena with plenty signage so you don't get lost! Our seats were in the gods but actually agreed we had a great view which isn't always the case at mammoth arenas such... More

On a recent trip to New York we attended on 3 different occasions. Once for Hockey and twice for Basketball. Great experience. We were seated in a section that had a person available to bring drinks and food. Once my Son paid $20 for food and it never arrived and all the staff had disappeared. Very strange. But other than...

Having done tours of Football stadiums in Europe, this was a serious let down. You pay almost half the price in Europe and get amazing access around the ground. This tour consisted firstly of the tour guide blabbering about the famous people that have entered the arena. Then we watched a VIDEO about MSG!!!!!! Then we got made to take... More

We came here to watch the Knicks play whilst staying in NYC. The venue is huge! Staff were helpful and friendly and the place is very clean and comfortable. Lots of places to buy food etc too! My only complaint was that we were constantly disturbed by an endless stream of people up and down throughout the game meaning we... More

Visited the garden twice in one day, first for the all access tour then at night to see the Knicks. All the staff where extremely helpful and friendly, something that seems to be the same everywhere in New York and will be the lasting memory of my trip. The all access your is exactly what it sounds like and leaves... More
