We have gone to this building for graduation ceremonies and shows. They have nice bathroom, organized security, and nice employees. Would recommend to see any show here.

Medium size arena (around 11 000 seats). Great view to the court. The seats are really confortable however not a lot of legroom. The price at the concession are reasonable. Lots of parking around the arena.

We really enjoyed the Rochester Americans (Amerks) hockey game at the Blue Cross Arena. We have been attending events here for over 30 years! So much fun, and not a bad seat in the house.

The set up for the concert was great, it's the beverage set up that I didn't love. You buy an $8.00 glass of wine and it's in practically a Dixie Cup. When you have a hike back to your seats, trying to walk with an...More

We went to the Blue Cross Arena for a Neil Diamond Concert and sat in the lower level. I was surprised how well the sound system was in this arena. Much better than some of the other arenas I've attended.

There are many parking garages within 1 block of the arena. The parking lot at the Arena is reserved for those with disabilities.

There are nearby ramps for parking. I park in the lot directly across the street where the court building is. There's ample parking there as well as an elevator if you have to park in the lower levels. I hope this is helpful
