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.
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! :)
As a New Yorker I can honestly say that I didn't think I was missing much by not visiting Madison Square Garden, but boy was I wrong! This place was great, from the staff to the decorating, I enjoyed every bit of my first experience, as did my 7 year old, his first professional basketball game 😁. The place is huge; they have many different food options to choose from, different small bar areas, and many little shops or Kiosks available selling things, depending on the event. I would recommend this place to anyone, adult and children alike.
If you're in the pit, or the general admissions area, basically the area with no seats right up to the stage, its super fun. The floors are somehow bouncy, and the view is great. The seated tickets were further back and there seemed to be no TV screens, so buyer beware. The venue is easy to find, but the correct entrance was not. Get ready for long twisting concession lines and of course metal detectors and security checks. On that note, the security seemed really tight and had a real presence. When I went, they did not have a coat check so four stars.
