The show was fantastic. Access to the Arena is deplorable. You really have to want to see a show to put up with the traffic. Seats are only half full by show time as people can't get to the arena.

The only negative was getting to the concert. Traffic was backed up to the arena, and a short trip turned into a long wait! The staff was very friendly, but the staff on the floor need to familiarize themselves with the layout for the seats....More

This is built for basketball. The sound system was below average for a concert . The steps into the seats are very steep Needs upgrading. hard to understand the announcer. The actual orchestra music was fine.

Large auditorium with a variety of ticket levels. Most areas despite cheaper seats still have reasonable views. Check out seating map and views before purchasing. Popular performances sell out quickly. Large parking lot. Very handicap accessible.

I have attended a couple of high school graduation events at this arena in the georgemason university and have always found easy parking. Getting out soon after an event could be an issue since the nearby roads are not designed for such traffic.

I admit I look for reasons to go to this arena, no matter what name it has in a given year. It's on the George Mason Univ. campus, plenty of parking, and excellent views from all the seats.

In the event you sit in the regular arena seating and not on the floor, I'd suggest lower rows (AA, BB, EE, etc.) and aisle seats (1 and 2 or 15 and 16). My seats for basketball games are in Section 117 and have also sat... More
