Allstate Arena won best place to see a concert. Check out what else won best of Chi-Town with 1035 Kiss Fm! Check out 1035 Kiss Fm's website for more details!

Worst

The reason why they get all the music tours at this boxy, uncomfortable monument to bad acoustics is because there's a tax on the venues further in that the acts don't want to pay...

Treated like an idiot 2/11/2010

If you are a Hispanic, like I am, don't be surprised if the guy that sells you the tickets treats you like you are slow, the way I was treated. I can tell you this because there was a white man in front of us and he was treated very nicely, but as soon as I stepped forward this guy, the sales guy, changed his tone and started talking to me as if I didn't understood English without me saying a word. Even after I spoke to him in English he continued to talk to me the same way. What an IDIOT. I don't understand how prejudice people like him gets a job dealing with people of different ethnic background. He should be selling HOODS in South Carolina or MIssissippi. Cons: Treated like an idiot more

""Discomfort"" Key Word 11/19/2002

In a Word ""MISERABLE"" the seats are built to accomidate the average 6yr old or anyone who is less than 5' 4' & 110 lbs (By far NOT the fast majority of Adults). The parking cost is unbelievalbe, scalpers are literally knocking on your car window the moment you drive in. The sound is terrible, upper level is sweltering hot. Will NOT be going back!! Cons: Seat Size, parking cost, scalpers more

Not good 5/20/2002

The reason why they get all the music tours at this boxy, uncomfortable monument to bad acoustics is because there's a tax on the venues further in that the acts don't want to pay. The walkways behind the seating are so poorly designed that many traffic jams result, but you'll never notice that at a minor league hockey game. They are pretty tight about the parking lot, so even if you're not doing anything it makes you feel uncomfortable. Only go to the show here if there's no alternative. Pros: Only game in town, Easy parking Cons: acoustics, layout, comfort more

Not bad for sports 5/19/2002

As home for the Wolves, Allstate Arena does just fine -- nice and loud. Same for the circus. After all, this place is a virtual barn. That kind of atmosphere means trouble for music, but sports events go just fine here. The outside has been fancied up a bit from the days as the Rosemont Horizon, but it's still the same old place inside. The parking lot is OK, but $11 seems pretty steep. Pros: Big parking lot more

Editorial

  • Overview
    Sure, it's rather unremarkable looking, but you're coming here to watch a game or a concert, not the building. Classic rock acts such as the Who, Pink Floyd and Bruce Springsteen...
