We attended the Ringling Bros, Barnum & Bailey circus here.... Only good thing I can say is it was very clean. We had great seat location as far as seeing the show, BUT 1) I am 5'8" and had to sit sideways the entire show because my legs wouldn't fit in front of me, and 2) in the outer area... More

The concert was phenomenal. HOWEVER, the Smoothie King Center has much work to do to get patron flow in and out of this place faster and safer! Funneling patrons out of four doors, the mob of people contra-flowed with patrons in line at the merchandise booth! What a hassle. And then, outside, police barricades and limos forced this same crowd... More

Went to see Bruno Mars June 7th, 2014. The seats were terrible, it was so hot, and the big screens next to the stage..weren't big enough to see Bruno. When he stood in the middle of the stage, the lights were on him, but from above, you couldn't see his face. The light show and heat almost sent my friend... More

I recently attended the New Orleans Arena for the Wrestlemania Hall of Fame and WWE Raw on the following Monday night. The arena is adjacent to the Superdome and although a lot smaller it held a lot of charm. The arena itself was very clean and easy to navigate to our seats on both occasions. Viewing even in the upper... More

I really enjoyed this arena, I attended both the WWE Hall of Fame 2014 and WWE RAW after Wrestlemania 30 here. The staff was great and it was easy to get in and get out. Not really a bad seat in the place to be honest. Check out an event if you get a chance.

Attended a Pelicans and Okc Thunder basketball game on a Monday night. Both family and adult friendly. More food and drink options than I've seen at other arenas..friendly staff..easy to get around. The only negative comment is the temp...felt like a hockey game, we were all freezing (and dressed in jeans and long sleeves). Would recommend a jacket. Fun night... More

We attended the recent WWE events here, I had the chicken tenders from one of the venders adjacent to block 111 on our first visit and they were surprisingly good. Restrooms were clean and there was no queuing. The atmosphere at Monday Night Raw was excellent as usual, we were sat in block 103 for that and had a great... More

I went to see the New Orleans Pelicans basketball game and it was a good experience. The game was mid week and the arena was not overly busy but the tickets are very cheap for excellent seats. The staff at the arena was very nice and the atmosphere was really good - lots of fans cheering and excited to watch... More

Perfect location- in between the Superdome and the Interstate system. Parked in the Superdome parking lot and walked right across the ramp. One of the easiest arenas to get in and out of. Set up perfect for concerts.
