The World’s Most Famous Arena, also known as Madison Square Garden, MSG or The Garden, is a multi-purpose indoor arena located in Midtown Manhattan where historical moments have been made. However, MSG was not always at their well-known location on top of Pennsylvania Station between 33rd and 31st street. The first two venues titled “Madison Square Garden” were on East 26th Street across from Madison Square Park in 1879 and 1890. The third location was uptown on 50th street and 8th avenue. The MSG location that we have come to know and love opened in February of 1968 and currently hosts professional basketball and ice hockey games, boxing and wrestling matches, concerts, ice shows, circuses, and more with a seating capacity of up to 19,830. This arena is home to the New York Rangers, New York Knicks, New York Liberty, and Billy Joel. MSG hosts the most high-profile concerts than any other venue in New York City. The Garden has witnessed John Lennon’s final concert appearance, four consecutive sold out shows by Elvis Presley, the final show of The Police, 64 performances by Elton John, Michael Jordan’s first professional game, the first between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier and the list goes on. Shows have sold out at this arena in a minute or less. Justin Bieber holds the record for selling out the Garden faster than any other artists– in under 30 seconds. Before this, the record was held by Taylor Swift who sold out MSG in 60 seconds. This arena provides top tier acoustics, luxurious concessions, bars and restaurants, the Theater at Madison Square for smaller events , and jaw-dropping performances by a variety of talented artists and athletes to give ticket holders an unforgettable experience.
