Drove in from St Louis to see Journey this summer. Nice smaller arena that seems to be pretty new and in good shape. Easy to get in and out and parking no problem! Only problem... read more

We went to the Blake Shelton concert in March and had the best experience at the venue. We had great seats, 12 rows up by the right side of the stage. We were right across from the big screen with close up views of the entertainers, which was perfect for taking pictures. Sundance and Raelynn put on half hour each... More

Drove in from St Louis to see Journey this summer. Nice smaller arena that seems to be pretty new and in good shape. Easy to get in and out and parking no problem! Only problem for concerts is the extreme lack of places to eat and drink downtown which isn't their fault just a warning. Kind of ruined Our visit... More

I've been to this venue twice, both times for concerts. Latest concert was Journey/Asia. We got good seats at a decent price. Bathrooms were clean, considering how busy they were. Entering the venue was not a problem: security, metal detectors, etc., all to be expected. Long lines for concessions, but that is also not unusual considering the crowd. The staff... More

Sort of cliché but I would give this place a negative 5 but the system won't let you. There is only one positive thing to say about the Ford Center - decent venue for concerts (acoustics, seating, etc). However, the experience I had and witnessed during the recent Journey concert has permanently scratched this facility off my list of "places... More

We just got home from the Asia/Journey concert. We had plans on attending the concert for months but bought tickets only a few weeks before event. The lower arena seats had increased quite about in price closer to the show date so I opted for upper arena. The seats were still pretty good.

Its good place to watch sports, ok place for concerts, expensive place for food and drinks. (eat befor you go to anything there) Parking sucks. Needs a parking garage teid to it with a walkway to avoid the weather. Long walk to the ford center from any parking lots.

Free parking Nice facility.... I am use to more flash and promos for a minor league team. We walked up to the window 25 minutes before game time and purchased the family 4 pack... $10 seats at the end of the ice by the goals. Nice stadium, cleaned bathrooms, they did not have much of a crowd tonight.

Came to watch Carrie perform - amazing concert!! Well worth to watch and not a bad seat in the house thanks to her circular, centralized stage set-up. Large crowd, long lines not unexpected, but exiting was a cluster. Parking too. Only reason I wouldn't give total stars is lack of clear direction. Facility itself was clean and had multiple locations... More
