PNC Arena Reviews
We decided to stop by the arena on our road trip up north, and really liked the location, about 20 minutes from the city, and only 10 minutes from the airport. more »
Went there with family to see Sir Paul McCartney. We had seats in the upper level but the view of the stage was great. Would go there again more »
This place is very neatly laid out, lots of food options at substantial markups, lots of restrooms, for our event they had converted most of them to women's bathrooms so I had to search for the mysterious Male bathroom. Most of the seats in the arena have really good views. I was really happy even sitting as far back as I did for the concert. Overall great experience just cant get on board with paying 10 dollars for waters for my kids. Back street boys DNA concert 2019.
Huge arena! Great location for concerts and sports. The staff were able to get people in and out efficiently before and after the concert I attended. Parking can be costly depending on the event, so check in advance. Otherwise a nice venue. I'm sure I'll be back for other events.
