“GREAT CONCERT VENUE!!!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

The Allen Event Center is an awesome place to have a concert. The parking is easy with the 4 level parking garage and there is NO fee to park!!! They have a full concession stand, the air conditioning is great and the seats are comfortable. Restrooms get a little busy at intermission but the line goes really fast so stay in line and just wait it out. : ) Traffic moves well going in and out.

“Fun time! First Time”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

Enjoyed our concert last night, Doobie Brother's and Boston.
Though my ears are still ringing today. Didn't look there was a bad seat in the house. Doobie Brother's were the best, Boston look at the age you are playing to and adjust the volume! Enjoyed it!

“Fun place for affordable hockey”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The Allen Event Center is where the Allen Americans hockey team plays. There isn't a bad seat in the house. The players are younger than the NHL guys, generally, and they play with a lot of heart. The games are always exciting and fun. Tickets and food are affordable and I believe that parking is free in two covered parking garages. The event center is located in a large sprawling shopping area with lots of restaurant options. If you like hockey, you should really check it out.

“Hockey and a Gun Show”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Don't worry, not at the same time. It was ok for the gun show but not great. They lack a meeting hall big enough for something like that.

Now for Hockey, the Allen Americans have a great home. It's small enough for a CHL team to be right at home. Loud and comfortable.

We went to a Jazz/Blues festival once and they could use some help with sound.
