Pittsburgh is a city that sits on a plateau in between three major rivers, the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio. It is an urban center with all the amenities one would expect from such a city, including a great entertainment scene. There is great music, amazing theater, and terrific sports teams.
Event tickets include those for live music at Stage AE, Heinz Hall, and Mr Smalls Theater. These venues represent opportunities to see major, mid-major, and up-and-coming bands. The Benedum Center and Byham Theater are two of the most important cultural centers in the city. These are stages to see big Broadway musicals that are making their way through the region and major dramatic works from nationally-renown playwrights.
Yet, despite all these incredible music and cultural options, Pittsburgh is a major sports town. The Pirates play MLB baseball at PNC Park, the Penguins play NHL hockey at the Consol Energy Center, and the Steelers play NFL football at Heinz Field. The basketball scene is dominated by college teams, specifically Pitt.
