“FIGHTING out of the blue corner…” is what may come to mind when thinking about the T-Mobile Arena. Lots of historic UFC fights were battled in the octagon, including the rise of “The Notorious.” Besides professional mixed martial arts, the Vegas Golden Knights are an NHL team now beloved by the city in this arena. Let me say, these games are one travelers need to go too if hockey is in season or not. Sit and enjoy the light show, performances, and so much more. Speaking of light shows, this is a stage where legends are born on the mic. Entertainment is Vegas, and famous singers give the T-Mobile Arena everything they’ve got! Prices for tickets are going to be expensive, but think about the experience and entertainment value. There are absolutely no bad seats. Acoustics are great throughout and views of center-stage are visible anywhere you are. Who know the next time Vegas is in the plans? Take a walk on the strip and see how a 20,000 plus stadium entertains.
