New York, NY
New York City is the cultural capital of the world and this means there are always event tickets for something interesting in the Big Apple. There are thousands of venues to enjoy live music, hundreds to enjoy the theater, and many major stadiums and arenas to watch sports. With so many options the major problem writing about New York is choosing which venues to spotlight.
Concert halls range from holes in the wall to the Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center. In between there are the stadiums and arenas used during the regular season by the professional sports teams and major performers in the offseason. Venues like Beacon Theatre and Terminal 5 are dedicated to music and will typically bring host mid-level bands no longer able to fill MSG.
Theater rules in NY. That should be obvious from the number of theatres in the city. Most of the biggest venues are located in an area known as Broadway. The world famous theater district is home to the Minskoff Theatre, the Gershwin Theatre, and many more. All one has to do is venture a little further out to find the Off-Broadway venues, those with smaller capacities than their Big Broadway cousins.
New York has a team in every major sports league. The New York Knicks and Rangers play in Madison Square Garden, the Nets play at the Barclays Center, the Islanders play at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, the Giants and the Jets play at MetLife Stadium, the Yankees play in Yankee Stadium and the Mets play at Citi Field. There me as many options for sports, perhaps as many as there are for theater.
