The K Rock Centre is a modern and world class facility for viewing hockey games and music concerts. The food and beverage offerings are the expected things with the typical high prices of todays arenas. Every seat in the house is a good seat.

The K-Rock Centre is a perfect example of a downtown sports and entertainment venue. The centre is the perfect size for concerts for a city of the size of Kingston and because of the location of Kingston, there are some great entertainers who perform here. You are guaranteed to get a good seat that will have a much better view... More

Lots of washrooms but long lines for concessions. Another quirk of the construction is having to line up outside for tickets which is ridiculous in Canadian winter temperatures. Good sight-lines for hockey and good sound for concerts. The seats are also reasonably comfortable for an arena.

We have been here for a concert (City and Colour) and our daughter's graduation ceremony. Lots of room, we'll organized and staff is great. During the concert, it seemed like every seat made a great seat. Well lit and tons of staff around, ensuring people got to their seats quickly and offered information. Sound and lighting was excellent. Washrooms clean.... More

Great seating, wonderful venue for this size of city. There is ample parking, great Kingston history inside and plenty of boutiques and restaurants nearby. Had the opportunity to see STYX at the Centre recently. I was impressed by the line of sight and audio characteristics.

My children attended the concert alone. It is a clean safe place. It certainly doesn't have the same traffic as the Molson Centre that we are used to.

We went to see Joe Bonamassa. The acoustics were excellent, lights amazing and the theatrical fog added a great touch to the performance. We had floor seating on soft comfortable chairs and had a great view of the performers. We would go again to see someone as amazing as Joe.

I can't believe such prime property was wasted on a building which should be bringing in great performances yet here we are at the beginning of the season and June July and Aug are empty ...nothing to attract the tourists. What a white elephant. Such a let down!!!
