Good arena that is easy to get in and out of. Close parking makes it easy to walk to. Located downtown close to lots of restaurants for dinner. The only problem was the seats are a little squishy. I'm 6'6" and my knees were slammed into the seats in front of me. Other than that nice arena.

Well lit, food from vendors is so so. The noise level is deafening...we don't need to be entertained every minute! Clean restrooms.

We have attended concerts, games, and fundraisers at this arena. Parking easily accessible around the easily located building and the entrance is impressive, clean, and easily navigable. Acoustics great. We attended an Adele concert on the floor which was incredible and a Bocelli concert in the nosebleed section - be careful of vertigo up there!

Great stadium in the downtown. All the area is good to see during the evening in the week end. Lot of bar and pub eve is quite difficult to find a car park

I've been to many concerts at indoor venues and this was one of my better experiences. We were on the floor about 25 rows back and the sound was strong and clear (how can you go wrong with Adele). The ushers and staff was very helpful and friendly. Did not eat there so can't comment on the food and walked... More

This place is always a nice easy venue to find and get in and out of. They keep this facility up to date, clean and well staffed. Snack foods, drinks and stuff still way pricey but all the arenas seem to be. Sound was good and seating even being high were still good views.

We see many concerts in Phoenix and they are usually at Talking Stick! This time we had Adele tickets, I wish we had been lower,but we were lucky to even score seats. The sound was great, she can sing!!! Parking was easy, we managed to get a spot at a parking meter and it was only $5.00 instead of the... More

Attended the concert last evening. Seating in the arena was relocated upon arrival. Paid for 2nd row seats, 1,2 & 3. Relocated to side view, seats 5,6 & 7. Had to go down 18 steps for seating in the Sun arena! I was told I could be taken to my seat and wheelchair removed. NO THAT DID NOT HAPPEN. Seats... More
