Awesome site for concerts, games, anything we've ever been to here. The workers have always been very polite & helpful, too.
Can't beat the home town arena!

“MDNA @ Sharks Tank”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

"Whats up San Jose, Are You Ready For the MDNA World Tour"

Ive been to several venues for concerts, and Sharks Tank tops the cake. Great venue, walking distance from any hotel in downtown, just a short taxi ride from the airport, its very clean and polished. Great Staff, great beer, and great food. HP Pavilion is a perfect venue for any event. I traveled just for Madonna --was simple, easy and very convenient. Got off the airplane, short 10 minute drive to venue, 5 minute walk to hotel, and was back on the plane the next morning.

TIPS: You have to try the Chicago Dog at the venue, with a beer ! It was big and very fullfilling, like a meal itself.

-Doesnt hurt to ask a staff member, if there are any open seats closer to the stage, but with Madonna of course not.

“Great guest services”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We attended a Sharks game here and have attended other events in the past. Always amazes me at how helpful all the staff is. The ushers do a great job of holding people back during play. Unfortunately the Sharks lost the game we attended but the crowd was great.

“San Jose Sharks @ HP Pavilion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

All of the seats in this venue were excellent; we came 45 minutes early and watched the warm up for the San Jose Sharks, and then sat in section 203. We could see very well from any place we were. The bathroom lines are short, and the snacks are expensive, but not horrible ($5.25 for peanuts). They give away a lot of items depending on where you sit, and it's fairly balanced. The venue was clean, and did not smell unpleasant. The seats are a little close together, and if you lean forward too much the person behind you can't see.
