This was my first trip to a Hornets game in a while. I brought two of my sons and we had a great time. There was lots to choose from in concessions and the lines moved quickly because of several self-service tablets to order from at each location. There were several entrances and we got in quickly. They opened the doors an hour and fifteen minutes before tipoff. There was a large Team Store on the bottom floor and several kiosks throughout the arena where you could find souvenirs. We were on the front row of the upper section, above the box/club seating, and I thought our views of the game were great. The tickets were much cheaper than lower level seating but since we were at the bottom of the upper level I enjoyed our spot. It doesn't appear there's a bad seat in the arena, though. We stayed at the Holiday Inn City Center and were only a block away. The hotel had a parking deck as well so we paid once to park while we were there and walked everywhere. Very convenient. We'll be back!

Was here in March of 2019 for Pink's Beautiful Trauma World Tour. We really enjoyed the show and the venue. It was easy to get to both before and after the show. Entry was not hard and it flowed smoothly. Concessions for food, drinks, and merchandise moved as well as could be expected. The sets were as comfortable as you will find in an arena. They were not great - they did not suck. Unfortunately, our seats were waaaay back but we still enjoyed the show. Even that far away the sound was good.
Love Spectrum Center. I live very close to this location and I have been attending a lot of events and concerts here; my great memories and moments are in the Spectrum. From the outside you can take the light rail or parking close to it, Uber is another option. Food and drinks are served insight. Use comfortable clothes, don't bring too many things to avoid deep check in the security gate. Lastly, they are not selling tickets in the front anymore, everything is online.
Tremendous facility for a concert. Saw Genesis there last night and i was impressed with the cleanliness, and layout of the place. The acoustics were great and it was just a top notch experience all the way! I will definitely be back in the future for a concert. The only knock was the small restroom facilities on the 1st level.
Attended the New Edition Culture Tour concert in April 2022 and it was a great experience. Considering the volume of people, security and box office people did a great job and getting people through the metal detectors and ticket scanner quickly. It helps if you dont bring a purse or a very small one. A lot of the hold up getting thru security were people with larger purses who were turned around. Didnt use the restrooms while there but there seemed to be a lot of them. Also had tons of concessions opened for food and beverage purchases.
