The Little Caesars Arena is very well put together. It’s easy to find what you’re looking for and staff did a great job helping when needed. I had a private suite both times I went which I highly recommend. I can’t comment on the individual seats. However, the view from the suite was sweet! Our group enjoyed it!
Really amazing concert venue. The acoustics were great and very easy access to seating. The arena had a good layout with accessing inside and navigating the outer corridor. Security was quick to process, not a long wait trying to get in. My only complaint is that they seated some people behind the concert backdrop, at some points I couldn’t see the band.
