Went with two sons to a Miami Heat game. Not my cup of tea, but the Arena is nice, and easy to walk in and out... good parking nearby.

Great stadium in central Miami - home court of the Miami Heat. Close to good restuarants. Had seats from 3rd level, and still a nice view of the court. Great atmosphere.

Was amazed how high the stadium is and how many rows of seats there are!! The entertainment before, and at intermission had us enthralled. The whole experience was unforgettable and thoroughly enjoyable.

This is a nice arena and can still see the basketball court -- even in the 'nosebleed' sections (400's). Staff are very courteous and helpful to find what you need (soda vs. alcoholic drinks)

We had amazing seats directly at the court. The whole staff was very friendly and professional. Also we have been to the Grey Goose Lounge close to our seats. The only worst thing is the traffic around the Arena.

Last Saturday I bought tickets to go to Franco De vita Concert in the Arena in Miami. The show was spectacular but unfortunately the background sound was too aloud preventing the audience to enjoy the songs to the point that was overpowering and the singer voice could not be heard at times and lyrics were not legible at times.

I went for a concert and there was a lack of bartenders. The lines took about 30 minutes to get a a drink. Besides that everything else was pretty organized . They have also improved the food outlets at the Aerena and now you have pop ups from very known local restaurants.

Arena was clean and had decent enough food options. Sight lines were good and the sound from where we were sitting/standing was excellent. Getting out of the arena was a major pain, though most arenas are. Overall I'd definitely attend another show here

Thank Aliveguy

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!
