  • It was very spectacular. I saw pictures of fighting from Ali, very important matches in history, concert... bad thing is that the Pavilion did not work well La Luz and we could not see a set of lights that make. I sat in seat no. 1 in Stadium. Recommended

  • I couldn't help notice walking around this older sports arena that it does not seem older. They have done great things to update the walk areas and have a ton of great places to eat. We ate at the Mom...  more »
  • We went to see Chicago Bulls Knicks, and I can tell, was one of the highlights of the trip. The place is modern, and comfortable seating. We love!

  • First time at MSG. 2018 Big East championship game. Got tickets from 1 of the many gentlemen outside. Paid less than and got better seats than what was available on the apps like Vivid and stub hub. If you can negotiate, buy the tickets a few minutes after tip from someone outside. Just make sure they're real. As nice of an arena as there is, lines were manageable for bathroom and concessions during halftime. Security and concessions all seemed thoroughly staffed. Most seats look decent. Video and sound production wasn't overboard or too loud.
  • They don't call this place the world's most famous arena for no reason. Went to your for the first time to watch a couple of games from r the Big Ten Tournament. Our seats were second deck and we're amazing! The inside of the arena is also very modern and updated, which I was not expecting! Really excited to come back for more games and events in the future
  • Iconic venue in the heart of Manhattan. We went to see a hockey game on a Saturday night, and even if it was an end of season game with the Rangers outside of a playoff spot, the arena was packed and the atmosphere was great. We didn't have any issues getting in or out of the venue, and with subway stops all around the area, you can quickly get to wherever you need to go. Expect arena prices for food and alcohol - there aren't any cheap options.
  • MSG lives up to it's name as "The World's Most Famous Arena". It is a beautifully designed arena and no seat is a bad one. They have events almost daily and I have seen two college basketball games each for under $8. I would highly recommend it to anyone who gets the chance.
  • I came here for a U2 concert, and it was truly a great experience! The lighting was excellent, and the Acoustics were absolutely phenomenal!!! Nothing like enjoying an epic concert with over 50,000 fans!! Also the staff that work here are very helpful and knowledgeable. Overall I must say this was a great experience! A must-see gem of New York City! :)
