Really surprised at how nice the venue is at the PPL Center. Great show and looked like there's not a bad seat in the house. The Morning Call Club was really nice, too.

Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper show. Great venue..clean, not a bad seat in the house and tons of food choices. First time there. Will def return. And parking was close and cheap. Tough at leaving time, but that’s to be expected.

The PPL Center is a wonderful place to go see a hockey game or concert. Food prices are a little high but there is a good variety of food to choose from.
