The big day is finally arriving! On Wednesday, MGM Resorts International and Anschutz Entertainment Group open the T-Mobile Arena with a concert by The Killers.
There’s more to experience in and around the T-Mobile Arena than athletes, musicians and celebrities.
I attempted to find a bad seat in the place of 20,000. But if there is one good thing that comes from building an arena with housing a professional hockey team in mind, it’s that such a sloped design doesn’t produce many poor angles for those paying to watch events.
With all the hoopla around the opening of T-Mobile Arena behind New York-New York, it’s easy to forget another key related addition to the Strip will also be christened: The Park.
Ground was broken for T-Mobile Arena on May 1, 2014. Two years and $375 million later, the 20,000 seat arena is set to open to the public.
Marco Cochrane’s 40-foot, 7,500-pound “Bliss Dance” statue was unveiled at The Park on March 4.
If you’re a hockey fan, you’re going to love T-Mobile Arena. If you’re a hockey player who skates for the hoped-to-be Las Vegas NHL franchise, you’re going to love coming to work.
Despite varying proposals, the only arena seed to bear fruit is has been the T-Mobile Arena. MGM Resorts International teamed up with Los Angeles-based AEG, the same company that developed the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, to build the 20,000-seat, $375 million venue that opens April 6.
Wednesday marks the first time Las Vegans will finally be able to scope out the inside of the gleaming brass structure that’s been taking shape at the southern end of the Strip for the past couple years.
