We saw The Monkees in concert here. The arena staff was pretty good, making sure people were where they needed to be. Bathrooms were clean, which is more than I can say for the rest of the hotel and casino public restrooms. The concert was excellent though.

The venue was great for a concert. I was in the front row and if I were in the nose bleed, I would of still had a great view. After the concert, the casino had a variety of places to eat. If you got kids there is plenty of entertainment for them as well.

I came to the STAR OF THE DESERT ARENA to see Kieth Sweat, and it was very packed but very fun. The arena is well maintained and lively. No complaints great for the money.

I have attended several concerts over a time period. All the concerts have been very good. There is not a bad seat in the house. However, I don't prefer floor seats because you'll find yourself most of the time standing when other people stand in front of you.

The arena is located at Buffalo Bills Hotel & Casino in Primm, NV (at the state line between Nevada and California off the I-15 Interstate Highway). My fiancée and I went down from Las Vegas to see the O'Jays in concert. The stage was closer than in the past, when we went to the concert for Kenny Rogers. They had... More

I've see so many great musicians here! Aretha Franklin, Patty LaBelle, Frankie Valli, Loggins & Messina, Donna Summer, The Pretenders, America, Boz Scaggs!! Nothing fancy, but an easy drive down from Vegas, reasonable drink prices & great local bands playing before/after concert!

Located inside Buffalo Bills Casino in Primm, NV. We have been to a variety of shows at this venue, and they do a pretty good job. Crowd is on the smaller side. They host older entertainers usually. We saw some excellent concerts from Dennis Deyoung from Styx and Kenny Rogers. Also have seen some good MMA style fighting and monster... More

There is NOTHING in Jean. Primm is a few miles farther from Las Vegas and on the Nevada/California border. It is an XLNT venue for what it is. Great sound and more than adequate lighting. Seating is plastic stackable chairs. Bar service is a short walk as is restrooms. They feature country and older acts. We have seen the following;... More
