We went to the Hurricane's / Capitals game. The PNC arena was pretty good but, it looked to me like there were more Capital's fans there than Canes fans. The fan base was somewhat disappointing after going to a Blackhawks game in Chicago. Chicago's fans are ALL IN!

I've been to a few hockey games at the PNC arena and I am always blown away by how awesome the arena is. The seats are comfortable and the layout of the arena makes everything easily accessible. The staff is always friendly and helpful and seem like they genuinely enjoy being there. I look forward to going to games in... More

Went to see Garth and Trisha here, and found it to be an excellent concert venue. Good sightlines everywhere, and good flow in the outer areas. Predictably, this place was sold out and just filled with people, but we could move around as needed. Parking is plentiful and convenient. This is home ice for the NHL Carolina Hurricanes team.

Being a hockey fan, the NHL franchise, the Carolina Hurricanes play their home games at the PNC Arena. The price for tickets, although expensive by some standards, is still less expensive than in other venues around the country. It is also a great place for concerts, the circus, Circ de Soleil, and larger comedy attractions. For certain performances make sure... More

Been to several Cane's games at PNC ( I travel from Charlotte) and never have been disappointed. PNC is an older arena by today's standards but is great arena to view a game as all the site lines are good.

My reason for the low review is mainly for the arm and a leg this place has the nerve to charge for parking. Events are expensive enough with fees and taxes added on, then to get there and pay nearly $20 just to park. Ridiculous. Also the seats are tight and I'm not a big person. It's a big venue... More

Great arena. Go early if you need handicapped parking as they fill up.google the site map to find your seats so you park on the correct side (east, west, etc). Otherwise you will have to walk alot to get to your side. You can not take drinks or food. Inside snacks are pricy.
