  • On August 20, 2016, thousands of Tragically Hip fans descended on Kingston for their "final" concert. About 6,700 of those fans watched from within the K Rock Centre. Kudos to the concert organizers f...  read more »
  • I've only attended here for live events but was built for hockey. Great location with pay parking in the next block. Entry is easy. Signage is lacking. Access to 'the floor' for concerts is very awkwa...  read more »

  • There's a reason this arena has won awards ever year as the top venue. It is superbly designed - not a bad seat in the house - and well managed. I also have to declare I am a Rogers employee and work at K-Rock 105.7. I am proud to have our name on such a great place.
  • A nice entertainment venue in thw heart of doqntown kingston. Easily able to walk to it from the waterfront.
  • I was born and raised in Kingston and as such am a life-long fan of the Kingston Frontenacs. I didn't get to see a game until the buildings second year because I was living in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Medicine Hat, Moose Jaw and Lethbridge are all Western Canadian communities that have invested tens of millions of dollars into arena upgrades or new entertainment facilities. The K-Rock Centre is by far the nicest most complete I've been in. You'll frequently hear people complaining about prices at concession but any arena or entertainment complex have high concessions, parking is limited but if you don't mind a beautiful down town stroll, can park closer to Queens University or down Ontario Street...especially in the fall and spring it's a great walk. Then in game experience is finally good as the team manages a competitive product on ice. They get big name comedians and music acts. The in game fronts entertainment is fun and always trying to improve. The McDonald's side of the arena (where McDonald's has a lot of available seating) is usually pretty empty during the hockey season, something I hope the marketing department of the Frontenacs can improve, a full arena creates better experience. All and all a fantastic landmark for Kingstonians to call our own; perfect for an expensive date or entertainment experience. 4 stars because I too don't like high concessions.
  • I personally work at the Rogers K-Rock Centre in the conversion crew what we do is behind the scenes Whenever there is a show we wear the ice with fiberglass plywood cost is it cheating and then set up the stage take down all the glass that needs to be take out backer boards set up seating and put the large black curtains up from there Nassco they set up all of the lighting display fog machines sound. This is all followed by the dedicated cleaners that do a very good job of keeping the entire Arena clean thanks guys as well as all of this surrounding sales people and merchandisers that sell different and interesting things come stop by check out the website for event scheduling hope to see you there. Home of the Kingston frontenacs hockey team. Go fronts go.
  • I have seen quite a few concerts here from different seating positions. I have never had a bad seat yet. The staff are always helpful and the lines for drinks and food is always fast moving even when they are long. I was just there for a country concert and we were on the floor , had a fantastic time! After the concert there are restaurants and bars in walking distance .
