“Harlem Globetrotters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

The Harlem Globetrotters dribbled, dunked, and laughed their way to the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky... amidst a crowd of supremely excited onlookers.

In these days,it truly is difficult to find something that will keep the entire family entertained. Sometimes it is especially difficult to capture the attention of multiple generations, but the Harlem Globetrotters have executed this with an amazing simplicity. Basketball is spectacularly represented with a full game, with the Globetrotters using their almost crazy athletic abilities to leap into the air and pass, slip, and slide across the court.

But the action doesn't stop there! At any moment, someone may pull members of the crowd onto the floor for a shooting contest, or to sing and dance to "YMCA". Expect anything!

If you were worried about the females having interest, Tammy Brawner captivates everyone with her unique presence, often paying a bit more attention to the little girls in the audience.
And after the game, everyone is given the opportunity to meet the team, which is an added bonus that is rarely offered at such entertainment events.

If you have never experienced the Harlem Globetrotters, then you have missed a night of comedy, gravity-defying feats, and all-around fantastic family entertainment. Make sure to get your tickets and be ready for the action!

“Amazing Arena”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

My husband and I acquired a couple of tickets to a Louisville basketball game, first time at the YUM center. What a fantastic place! It is huge, yes. But the facilities are clean, the staff were friendly, and there were no long lines... Plenty of restrooms, and food venues. Our Seats were on the third level, but they were great! One slight drawback is the crowds getting to the escalators when you leave.. That would be the only thing. Excellent Venue.

“Beautiful venue, but it has its drawbacks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

I've had the opportunity to visit 'Yum'--both in 2010 and both for Louisville Cardinals events. It's aesthetically attractive and a fun place to walk around in, but difficult if your seat is up in the upper bowl. Like most large arenas, it almost feels like you're going to fall over sometimes into the lower section. I would also suggest to east meals before going inside, as you practically have to take out a second mortgage to pay for some of their food.

Overall, it's a fun place! The atmosphere was splendid.

“Recent Jimmy Buffett Concert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Great venue to see Jimmy Buffett even from section 309. This side mezzanine section was actually better than I thought it would be. There was only one speaker system slightly in the way but it was up high enough not to cause any problems. It looked like most seats had a good view. The stage was good-sized & the screens on the back wall showed every angle of the performing artists. Plenty of nearby parking available. The only slight negative was there weren't enough places to purchase drinks. Jimmy was into his third song before I returned with the Margarita's but still a good time was had by all.
