    The arena is clean, seats are nice, and the staff is helpful. From food to souvenirs, things inside to buy are expensive, as one would expect, but they're pretty good quality. There is plenty of parking nearby, especially if you're willing to walk a block or two.

    Wells Fargo Arena is well designed. Easy to locate, great and convenient parking options and plenty of restrooms which keeps the lines shorter, allow one to return to the entertainment quicker. Temperature was perfect for Tom Petty and Joe Walsh concert.

    This would be a nice place to see a game, maybe. But, not the best place to see a concert. The acoustics are pretty terrible. And the seats are so tiny! I wish they would have had less seats, so that there was more room for the audience. The concert was great, but this venue isn't the best.

    Views are great from almost any seat. Need to improve the efficiency of scanning people entering for events. Still super expensive to eat or drink in the arena.

    June 2017 Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers with Joe Walsh was a rocking good time! Aug 2016 Journey, Doobie Brothers, and Dave Mason were Amazing!! Nice clean arena. Smaller than the new mega arenas, so good seats all around. Located near the river, downtown. One of Des Moines' beautiful foot bridges is right across street. Easy access by foot no matter which side of the river you stay on. Plenty of restrooms, didn't wait in line ever! Convenient concessions and enough stands that there are no huge lines to wait in. We'll definitely return.
