I have enjoyed seeing both the Dallas Stars and Dallas Mavericks play at American Airlines Center. Great venue for sporting events.

“Basketball, Hockey, and Top Musicians”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

American Airlines Center is the place to see all the biggest musicians put on their concert. Not a bad seat in this arena! Also, the AAC is home of the Dallas Mavericks (basketball) and Dallas Stars (hockey)!
Parking is pricey, so I recommend taking the DART rail and get off at Victory Park Station-which drops you off right in front! And that only costs you about $4/person.

“Stars Hockey Game”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I won a set of tickets, valued at $150.00 a piece. Went to enjoy a game. The seats were so cramped together it was hard to sit comfortably. No place to put arms, as one has to share each arm rest with the other person next to you. The restairants in the place were nice, patios and a view. But watching the game was very uncomfortable. For that reason alone, I have not attended any concerts there, as there were many I wanted to. Others don;t mind being cramped in with others, I like having some space, like the Verizon Amphitheatre in Grand Prarie. It's a drive from Frisco, but much more fun totally. Again, my preference is to be able to relax and enjoy.

“Great Hockey Venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

I have never seen a basketball game or concert there but it's a great venue for hockey! Parking is a little more expensive than what I've paid at other arenas.
