The Auditorio Nacional is nice for smaller concerts. I prefer it over the Estadio Azteca and Foro Sol which are way too big for my taste. Make sure you arrive well in advance in order to park, buy snacks and find your seat :).

I've been here twice now for concerts, and I think the place is really nice. It's old now, but it fits A LOT of people and you still have a "close to the stage" feel. I will always appreciate that it's easy to get to Auditorio and out of there thanks to the place having its own Metro station which... More

This is an older venue. I saw Andre Rieu here with my parents. It's huge. Fits like 12k people... The walk ways are a little unmanageable. And the seats a little snug. But I feel you get a good view from every seat. We sat in the middle of the auditorium and got a great view. At one point the... More

This is an incredible venue with capacity for 10000 people!! We were there for the Andre Rieu concert and it was an amazing experience. I will try to find another opportunity to visit, the next time I'm in town.

The Auditorio Nacional is still a great venue for concerts, The acoustics are good and even from the side you have a pretty good view with projections for close ups of the action. The Auditorio was rebuilt in 1990, opened for business in 1992 and has a 10,000 seating capacity. It is right in the middle of Mexico on Reforma... More

The National Auditorium in Mexico City is a wonderful venue to enjoy live music concerts or theater. The infrastructure and accommodations are just great and it has a privileged location in the Chapultepec Forest. A lot of incredible memories come to mind as we have enjoyed great performances from Yanni, Pet Shop Boys and Moenia in this marvelous place.

Impressed with the venue. Very clean overall (hallways, theatre and restrooms), the line to get in was very short and there's plenty of concession stands to buy drinks. Uber friendly in case you need to get drop-off. We sat on the upper level and we were able to enjoy the show, the sound quality was very good.
