“Great place to see Hockey and Shows”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

You are close to all the action of minor league hockey. The Reading Royals hockey team is great to watch and you can keep up with the game as the speed is not quite as fast as the NHL.
Great place to see shows as the seats are close to the stage no matter where you sit.

“Great venue”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

What a great venue for concerts, ice hockey and more. Security for the venue is great, parking is readily available in many close parking garages (for a small to moderate fee, depending on the entertainment scheduled). And the food is pretty good but slightly pricey

“A great large venue with some great shows and sports.”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 via mobile

There is easy access into and out of Reading for the Sovereign Center. They have had some top rated entertainers. Tickets are pretty reasonable but concession prices can be hefty. Some restaurants cater to theater goers and sometimes have special deals.
