We have been to many show at Mohegan Sun and always had a great time. This time however I was late getting tickets for Jeff Dunham and got nose bleed seats. We have been in the cheap seats in other arenas and thought it would be fine. Boy were we wrong.

The seats were so far in the corner that we could only see the left side of Jeff Dunhams' face and none of the puppets. The sound system was so bad that no one around us was laughing because no one could understand what was being said.

Add to that that the section was so steep that my wife was getting sick.

We finally climbed down and sat in an area that they hadn't sold seat in. The view of the stage wasn't any better but at least we could understand the jokes.

I guess these seats would be acceptable for a rock band or something like that, but they should never have been sold for a comedian.

It was our first time at this venue, we were very pleased. The arena is not too big. I found it easy to get to and from our seats. Plenty of ushers to help people find their seats. Although our seats were on the upper level at the opposite end from the stage they were still fine. Good acoustics for an arena. Lots of food choices. My only complaint was the sports banners hanging from the rafters which somewhat blocked our view of the video monitors.

Let me just start off my saying the workers at the Mohegan Sun arena could not be any nicer. Every single worker I encountered had a smile on their face, were truly helpful and genuinely kind people to be around. That is also much appreciated. The facilities were very clean which is also equally appreciated. The main complaint I had, as well as many others is the seating. The seats was so cramped and small. I have been to many Broadway theaters where the seating is cramped which is understandable because they're old, but for the Mohegan Sun arena (which looks completely new) I don't understand why it has to be that way. Very uncomfortable! A couple next to us actually got up during the show and left because of the seats.

My husband & I recently saw Rush here. Then over the 4th of July w/e we saw Heart (w/ Jason Bonham) & we think it is the perfect size venue for a show. We had great seats for both shows. Any experience we had with the Arena's staff was also positive. They were all polite & friendly. With the option to hang around before & after the shows is a plus with shopping, dining, casino - it's all good.

The concert arean is not too big. You can enjoy a concert in any seat-I've sat all over the venue. The restaurants are nice also, some are a bit pricey. If there is a big event then reservations should be made if you have a specific agenda. We ate in BBQ restaurant which is always good. There is Michael Jordan's steakhouse. A small side restaurant to it has better food prices.
