I have been here 5 times already and it's a huge venue.. right in downtown which you think would be terrible for parking but there is parking garages right behind the arena costing 10$ to park

Live going to the Santander arena to see the Reading Royals hockey team and also a great place for concerts. It holds thousands of people. Always a fun time and great food.

A really awesome venue for a concert. The PA system was phenomenal. Sold out crowd on a Monday night, venue was just perfect.

It really would be almost impossible to have a "bad" seat here. Small, but that's what makes it great. Hotel directly across the street for over night shows!
