I was able to catch a Phoenix Suns game when I was in town. Walked to the arena from my hotel and back with no worries. The arena is a good arena for basketball. I had a front row seat in the upper level and while I loved the seat the railing and glass covered half of my view. Luckily... More

Hadn't been to an NBA game in 22 years. Snapped up cheap lower level tickets on Stubhub and decided to give it a shot. Pleasantly surprised! We parked in the ramp between the arena and Chase Field for $12. It was easy to get in and out and the attendant was friendly and helpful when we asked what there was... More

Bought tickets on line for the game, 6 rows up and included the Blue Moon club, which includes all the food and beverages and a great experience. The arena doesn't have a bad seat in the house and the amenities are top drawer.

We went to a game on a Wednesday night. The arena was not full at all. We were able to get cheap tickets on StubHub the day before. Parking was easy and close. Venue was clean and maintained. The Golden Grannies were the best entertainment.

My wife and I went to the Suns game. Decent crowd of about 17000. Not bad since the Suns haven't done much the past 2 years. I have to say watching the young Suns play shows hope for the future. Talking Stick Arena is a great place to enjoy a Suns game, and concerts. I've been many, many times and... More

After spending spring break watching MLB Spring Training, we decided to see an evening Suns game at their home arena. The venue was clean, staff were friendly, it was easy to get in and out of, and most importantly, lots of fun for all of us. I was anxious driving downtown in a city I'm unfamiliar with, but the traffic... More

Have been to this arena many times before and have always been able to see the event/concert. I was given tickets by my wonderful teen daughters for Christmas to a concert I was dying to see. They purchased tickets in section 211. Tickets were approximately $80/ea. We were literally 1 row from the very top and when standing could touch... More
