Great views from anywhere. Good food selections including Rosa Mexicana. Don't try to park at the Arena. If you to drive, park in Brickell and take the metromover.

Ushers and servers are nice an professional. However for Madonna they ran out of all spirits and wine. They only had beer and this was before the show started. The doors opened at 8 and the show started at 1030. A bit disappointing. Poor management.

The American Airlines Arena is a Great venue for sports, concerts and shows. We've been at the Miami Heat games and it's quite a fun experience no matter where you are seated. The same happens when attending a concert. This venue has a great acoustic as well as the view. Come in early and experience the outside ambiance before the... More

An arena is an arena. The food was so so. It was clean but the staff and security had attitude problems.

Great experience. Watched Miami Heat playing the Clippers. Very efficient and smooth crowd management in and outside the Arena. Unfortunately, Heat lost their game...

If you are on vacation and want to do something fun and entertaining you should consider a Miami HEAT game if it's basketball season! After the game you can walk to bayside and have drinks and continue the fun!

Re: HELP Madonna Rebel Heart Tour Jan 2016

I was wondering about a couple of AAA policies, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would like to hear about policies from anyone who has been to this venue or from staff members as I repeatedly call and cannot reach anyone.

1) Does anyone know if the NFL clear bag policy is enforced at AAA Miami or is it okay to bring a regular bag/purse that doesn't necessarily have to be clear. Decent size of course, nothing enormous. And does security thoroughly check these bags and take forever holding up the lines or are they pretty cool about it and just do a quick once over?

2) Also for a concert, are non-obtrusive (non-offensive, of course) signs allowed in the arena? Both regular poster signs, and poster signs with LED battery-operated lights? These wouldn't be held up throughout the entire concert naturally, just at intervals when there is appropriate entertainer-fan interaction. We are in the front row of floor seating section at the end stage of a catwalk - so would be able to hold them at mid level while still getting noticed without needing to hold them above your heads and obstruct anyone else's line of vision.

3) Does anyone know if there are barriers that separate the stage from the floor sections and the floor sections from each other? Our section is Floor Section number 5, Row A and it seems to intersect with Floor sections 4 and 6 - which confuses me. I don't want to think that I have been scammed into buying a front row ticket when I've really bought a 20th row ticket that has just been given it's own section for whatever reason - especially if this section is barricaded. Also, if anyone has had floor seats to Rebel Heart - are there guardrails between the stage and the sections or does the double-layered stage act as it's own barrier? It's kind of hard to tell. In most of the videos, it looks like everyone surround the catwalk and heart stage areas are close enough to reach out and grab her if she lets them, which she sometimes does... but this seating chart is different that most of the other concert venues so I'm a little concerned. Please help lol.

As an aside, we went to this same concert in Atlantic City and the security was very easy going and accommodating, which saved a TON of time for us (and everyone else). We were allowed to bring in our own un-regulated bags with no issues and they had no problems with any of our concert signs. I'm hoping AAA is as cool a venue as Boardwalk Hall in regards to these kind of policies and treating their guests as fans and not terrorists. If someone could assure me of this, as I cannot reach the venue directly for their own assurances, I would be forever indebted to you as we are traveling from the NY area just for this event and want everything to go as smoothly as possible by being prepared down to the last detail!

Thanks,

DarkAngel
