I've been to numerous concerts here and a few basketball games. The staff is professional, helpful and courteous. The concert seating is usually good but some concerts the seating arrangement was a little off but not terrible. The refreshments are expensive but not too bad.

We saw the NCAA gymnastics championships regional competition here. The facility was really nice - not a bad seat in the place. The concourse area is organized and everything is easy to find. The seats were comfortable for me as a short person, but a...More
