  • We have visited on a day when there was an nba game and we therefore could not changing rooms not visit (we are allowed to go back the next day just before that)-I had the impression that the visit was gerokken a little longer than necessary, thereby we have on 3 different places visited the arena and that was really not necessary-the guided tour with stops at the various large pictures end was nice but the Group was quite large to be able to see and hear everything

  • We had a guided tour of the prestigious arena. Unfortunately, the tour was in English, but we still had an informative sheet in french. We enjoyed our visit and the Majesty of the site!

  • A real show that is worth not to miss. The party was not too good, I've seen better in Spain, but everything else is worth living it at least once. That Yes, if you're going to drink a beer prepares purse...

  • Went there to see the Nick's play The Spurs. It's a fairly expensive place to watch a game, but it's New York! Seats were good, each level have TV screens. The scoreboard is massive so there is no issue with missing any of the action. Staff are good, food is more than reasonable, the fans are a bit noisy, but I wouldn't want it by other way, it was good to see the locals get behind their team (even though I'm a Spurs fan) entry was easy & within 5 minutes after the event finished we were already outside. I'm so glad I have been to see an event at this world famous sporting theatre
  • I was visiting and went for a Rangers game. The arena is great, the amenities were wonderful, the technology in the arena is cool, and the fans are hardcore and entertaining. But the only caveat is during intermission there are 20 lines for food, drinks, bathrooms, and they all intersect each other and cause major gridlock. Now I know why I saw so many people leaving their seats with a minute left in each of the first two periods... Still a worthy experience, especially when it is a tight game and they beat the Capitals like I witnessed!
  • They have a new section which they treat his nose bleeds. But they are great to watch the game. There's a halo around the court or you can look directly down and watch the game. I was suggest to get those tickets they're cheap but they're great seats.
  • We travelled from the UK to see Billy Joel as my husband is a life long fan and seeing him at Madison Square Garden was a dream come true for him. What a fantastic experience we had! The venue is outstanding, but more than that, the staff made our experience one to remember. the stewards on duty are a credit to the venue. Polite and friendly and completely customer focused - our venues in the UK could learn a lot from them! One gentleman in particular who was stationed on the right hand side of Section F was amazing. He was not a young gentleman, and had a bad limp but was rocking and rolling will all of us, and entertained the crowds with his Rudolph nose and comedy spectacles. I hope that you can pass our best wishes on to him. Well done to all of you, we will remember our night for a long time to come. Michelle and Steve, Birmingham, UK
  • MSG is amazing after the renovations! The views are much improved! Luckily had tickets to suite which was really awesome. Food and beer were great!
