This arena has been around for a long time, and I have been lucky enough to see a lot of great acts there, in a much nicer setting than the average giant arena or athletic facility. It's a great building for the George Mason basketball teams, and they have everything from the circus to Latin music festivals there. Usually a... More

Parent's weekend at GMU. They hosted Mason Madness, a pep rally for the basketball teams. The area is a nice size. We sat up high but had good visibility of the entire court and score board. Good sound. Good Visuals.

Attended Mason Madness, the kickoff to the GMU basketball season, during family weekend. The seating was comfortable; good views of the court and it appeared there would be good vantage points for other types of events, too.

This a nice venue for a concert. Good spacing of restrooms and snack bars - good variety on food! I think I would choose a side seat for a concert instead of one on the floor next time, especially if kids are in attendance, bc it's hard to see over the person in front of you. All seating on the... More

We arrived to the venue for a concert on October 8, 2016. When we got to our seats, we found that they were not what they should have been,. We needed accessible for my Mother-In-Law. We went to guest services and they were INCREDIBLE! They moved our seats to an area that was easier for my MIL to manage, and... More

The show was great and all enjoyed it. Parking was close and well lit. Food was very overpriced and not very tasty. Popcorn concession was Disney's and it was $10.00 for box of popcorn so will not be going to anything Disney again. Toys were also ridiculously priced. ridiculous priced so will not be going to any more Disney shows.

Arena concessions had what seemed a balanced selection and looked good, but I had none. Show rated 6 out of a possible 10.

I have been to EagleBank arena several times for shows with my daughter. Easy to park and walk to the venue. The cost of drinks and food seems to be pricey for this type of venue.

We attended a Maks and Val show at EagleBank. When we arrived, we were told that the stage was moved forward, and that our seats were now moved to the adjacent section. All the seats in the section we were originally supposed to sit were closed off. That added to the delay in seating. The show was not sold out... More
