  • I was seated up in section 318, row 11, right at the top of the arena. Our wonderful usher got us upgraded seats to section 101 at the Jonas Brothers concert. I was so happy that I nearly cried. Loved everything except for $5.50 price on a 20 oz bottle of Coca cola. $11 for 2 of them.
  • Have been here to see Coldplay and the Jonas Brothers. Was a great experience both times. Paid extra for a lot parking space. Also of note, the parking pass is good all day not just around concert time so you can park and then spend some time in the city before the concert. The negatives are that the parking pass is so expensive and not included with a ticket. Also that they wanted $12 for a generic beer. That's just ridiculous. I also hope they can continue to grab some top tier talent so Buffalo can have some more great events.
