Went to see a concert and was worried about seats cause I wasn't sure where they were located in arena, shouldn't have worried. I don't think there is "bad" seat in arena. If you stay away from the front of the venue, you don't have...More

Great venue to see a concert, sat in the upper second section looking down the arena. The sound quality was very good, seats comfortable and cost was reasonable.

I've attended several events here and it's really nice. You can see really well from every seat. It's also very reasonably priced if you want a front row seat.

Sad venue. Maybe great for graduation ceremonies and sporting events but not so much for concerts. Audience seemed sedated, people kept getting up, while bands were on stage, to go get food and drinks. Just sad. Sound was ok but this venue was tight and...More

We have been to Erie Insurance Arena several times in our years living in NW Pennsylvania. The latest was the Jim Gaffigan comedy show. Great Venue. No bad seat in the place. There could be more concessions. Kid friendly. They bring in some awesome acts/concerts.
