“Great basketball venue”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

I visited AW arena to see the Phoenix Mercury play. Much better experience than I had expected. The crowd is very friendly (we love our Mercury) and we had no trouble seeing every move even in the less expensive seats.

“Needs some updating”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

This vacility is older, and you can have a bad seat. Do not sit in the nose bleed section if you don't like height.

“Circus!”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

I just saw the Barnum and Bailey/Wringling Bros Circus here last month with my girlfriend and a few friends, and it was amazing! The facility is huge, and everything is geared towards having a large crowd. The only thing I didn't like were the seats. The seats, while comfortable, are a little narrow for my taste. But, it was a good time!

“For sports, concerts and special events it is a good venue”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

I have been to numerous concerts, sporting events and other events over the years at US Airways Center. They have upgraded it in the 20 years it has been open to keep it modern and fresh. The seats are fine. The sound system is fine. The neighborhood is good and the light rail makes it more convenient than ever to get there.

“First time to watch NBA Live”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

First time to watch NBA game live. Suns vs hawks. Hawks won. Anyway, the Arena is a great place, lot's of food choices to munch while watching the game. Thrilling experience for me.
