  • I went there to see Avicci and couple different performers shows were great, big parking out front well organized place and not downtown Chicago big plus to get there less traffic. 
  • Saw Kanye West at this venue. There really isn't a bad seat at this place being the size of the venue. Not too big at all but still the perfect size do get a nice crowd for a concert. 
  • Way to go Chicago Sky Had floor seats and OMG!! Just saying Wife loved it and met some great people! Also loved the Copa Wine. 
  • I've been to this venue many times! Parking is always a mystery; sometimes it's free, and sometimes you have to pay. We had to pay $20 on my most recent visit for the Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato concert.
  • We saw the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) here in January. The facility is pretty decent for these types of venues, that I usually despise. Pretty easy to get around, even when it's crowded. Seats are reasonably comfortable, but after sitting for two hours, can get to be a pain in the rear, literally. I also saw a Chicago Wolves hockey game with my boys years back, and remember that as a pleasant experience. Food is typical ho-hum, terrible for you, fast-food stuff that's massively overpriced, but that's what you get at places like this.
  • I'll be honest, this place deserves more of a 2.5 star rating than a 3. Now this is just a traditional concert/sport venue where concerts, Chicago Sky games, Chicago Wolves games, Harlem Globetrotters, and more are held. Pros: I liked this place because it had a huge selection of seating and restaurant. The actual arena was huge! The center is more than big enough for anything and you can see what ever is going from every seat. The food here is very good, but very pricey. $7.25 for one slice of pizza and another $5.50 for a small drink. Just keep that in mind. I also like how there is a lot of friendly security that will keep you safe. There is also unlimited amount of parking because of there huge lot. Cons: WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! There is a potential thief working here. When my friend was paying for a pizza at Ike's Pie Shop in front of the south gate, the guy wouldn't give him any change. My friend said that he had to fight for change for over 1 minute. Here's an in depth description of this worker: he is a little bit of an older guy with an obese appearance with a mostly bald head with gray hair. All I have to tell you is to stay away from him. Like I said before, the prices for food were very high. The seats here are very uncomfortable but don't really mind me that much. All in all, I will be back for something, but I will stay away from buying food. You should do the same.
  • This is a great arena to watch either a basketball game or concert. I've been to multiple Sky games here, as well as seeing The Scorpions live. The arena has comfortable seats, good acoustics, and great concessions. My only complaint was that the line to get into the concert took forever but I've never had that problem at other events. All around, a great place.
  • This was the worst concert venue I've ever been to. The staff was EXTREMELY unprepared and didn't care for the safety of anyone. I went for the twenty one pilots concert and people were lining up days in advanced so it was already expected to be a crazy show. There was no security organizing the line so 2 hours before doors opened everyone panicked and made a mob outside the doors. Everyone at the back of the line cut in front of everyone waiting HOURS and the security told us to "worry about ourselves." When doors actually opened, it was a stampede into the venue. The line was one big group that security couldn't even check bags. To get wristbands for general admission floor, we had to go to a table where they were handing them out. It was one big mob that the table almost flipped over. There was zero security controlling the crowd and many people couldn't even handle the crowd to get a wristband. I even witnessed a staff member stepping to the side to take a video instead of helping the situation. I was 8th in line for this show but since the venue didn't care, I ended up being in the back of the floor. The show was still amazing, but I will most likely not go to this venue again.
