It's been a while since I've been to the arena but it looks like they added more food vendors. I wish they had an anchor restaurant like at Chase Field. The only thing is that I looked up from my seat and saw a Canadian...More

Ease of use with parking, restaurants nearby. Comfortable seating, good, large venue. Could easily see the band. Fun times! Used park Whiz which now has an app. No printing a ticket, they just scanned my phone. Parking cheaper right there than other close spots.

Easy arena to get to. Plenty of parking, costs $10. Friendly staff. Good sight lines in the arena. Fun atmosphere. If you like basketball I woud recommend going to a game here.

Great sound throughout the Arena. Very crowded but handled professionally by entire Arena staff. The only drawback was no vendors to buy souvenir t-shirts from. Plenty of Phoenix Police readily available and accommodating to the massive crowd.

I have been here for a concert when it was US Airways Center and a WNBA game when it was Talking Stick Arena. Both were nice events and the seats are good no matter where you sit. Good acoustics

Metro goes right in front of the arena, but the stop is just a block east. Park just south and east of the arena and there are plenty of lots with costs from $10 to $5. If you get there really early there are a few free... More

susan, if you call the ticket office they will help you out and let you know, but it shouldn't be an issue. I attended a concert there and had floor tickets and I'm disabled; they assisted just fine all the way to the floor
