Great location if staying downtown. Fun venue for concerts with 18,000 of your closest friends lol. It pumps adrenaline through the whole place with that much energy.

Kane Brown Concert
Mar 2020 • Friends
Many of us were kicked out into snow while waiting for Uber or other rides. Show ended at 11PM & wanna be cops working for Times Union Center kicked us out at 11:21 into the snow & stating they wanted to go home. It’s a shame after spending $200 on tickets plus drinks at $13/beer they couldn’t let us safely wait inside for our rides. Very disappointing that they can’t treat other humans w/ respect. Kane Brown put on a wonderful show too bad it ended on a negative note.

Noah Trevor Live!

Noah's show was fresh and thoughtful. His command of multiple languages and accents was absolutely hysterical! His ability to find humor at the edges of cultural differences and his ability to find the common human threads of funny was tear inducing.

Great time but....
Dec 2019
I went with a dear friend to see Celine Dion here. While she put on a great performance and the seats were good and comfortable, it is the facility and parking that caused an issue. Being from out of town and limited knowledge of the area the parking while close really isn't marked very well. There were police that didn't really help the traffic congestion. Once inside there was a funnel into three or four metal detectors, followed by the actual entrance. It all seemed unorganized. Now I am not sure if this happens for every event as this is the only one that I had been to. Like I said the arena was nice, it was just the parking and entrance that was an issue.

Ok Venue for shows
Dec 2019
We saw Celine Dion there and she was incredible. The venue was ok as getting in was a little crazy with the long lines for security. The floor seating was comfortable although it did seem like a smaller arena.

sent out in the cold

We went to the celine dion concert and it was great. My wife can not walk long distances as she is recovering from foot surgery. She tried to wait for me from inside the door while I waiting for traffic to move on the 6th floor of parking garage... at 11 degrees with the wind blowing she was told she would have to wait outside.

I was impressed by easy parking
Oct 2019 • Family
I recently attended a show with my family. The parking garage was much closer than I expected, which was awesome. It was cash only though which was bizarre because it is 2019. I don’t know if the TU Center owns the garage. I am not including that in my star rating.

I was very disappointed that my husband was unable to find a bottle of water during intermission- they were only selling $12 lemonade. I imagine that there must have been a concession somewhere with water, but something so basic should be easy to find.

The air smelled pretty bad- I wish they had a better ventilation system. I don’t know if that would make a difference though.

Great sight lines, easy to get to, just off the interstate and easy parking in two parking garages within a block. Great place for a concert or ice hockey!

Went to a concert last night, doors open at 6:30, they did not. Not sure of the exact time they let us in, at least 15 minutes late if not more. The doors open and you were herded into a huge room, where we all waited for quite a long time, no room to take a deep breath. I was afraid no one screened us at the door. With the crazies in the world today, I felt this was very poor practice. They did have you walk through a metal detector when you got closer to the circular entrance. The concert started about a half hour late. The seating was OK but the sections were difficult to read, I was sitting in the wrong section went to the restroom came back to find someone in my seat, ooops my mistake. Speaking of restrooms, I was told by an employee there was only one in the whole place. I find that hard to believe
