Tips for you
I'm generally not a big fan of arena concerts, but this venue is quite nice. Floor seats have a few levels so you can see over sections closer to the stage. Big video screen flanking the stage really help though too. The seat off the floor allow for very good views. Sound quality was very good. Organization for getting in and out was pretty good. Drink sales were good and the cost was not high. I was allowed to bring in a bottle of water without any issues which would never happen in the USA.
