Web Site Group Tickets

Madison Square Garden, aka MSG or “The Garden,” in midtown Manhattan, is probably regarded by most performers as the pinnacle of success. Opened in 1968, MSG is both a performance and sports arena (home to NBA basketball team the New York Knicks and the WNBA’s New York Liberty; and to NHL hockey’s New York Rangers). In 1971, the first match between the boxing legends Mohammed Ali and Joe Frazier was held at the MSG. Between 2011-2013 it underwent an extensive, $1 billion dollar transformation that is still underway. Today, it has a capacity of nearly 20,000 seats, depending on the event. Who has played there? Elvis Presley, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin (in 1977, due to popular demand, they went from playing four nights to six) Elton John, Rolling Stones, Duran Duran, Muse, Bruce Springsteen, Jay-Z, The Police, Madonna, Notorious B.I.G., Michael & Janet Jackson, and many others.

Next to MSG is a smaller venue, The Theater at Madison Square Garden, for more intimate shows and productions, with a capacity between 2,600-5,000. Both venues are extremely accessible, located by the 34th Street train station and the Long Island Railroad below.
