Toyota Center

Best Of
The colossal Toyota Center has become the salvation of superstar music acts such as Metallica, Foo Fighters and Lil' Wayne when they roll into town. When the Rockets and the Aeros are away, the playing surfaces are removed, adding 700 seats on the floor for a staggering grand total of 19,000 possible attendees. The red seats, comfortable even if you're very tall, give a clear shot of the stage no matter where you're sitting. Plus, if you're just too far away, two overhead screens reveal the action onstage. The sound is top-notch, though beware of the seats off to the side, which can experience echo from time to time. But no worries, since it's predominantly a sporting venue, you can rest assured that your next adult beverage is just a quick jaunt up or down the stairs from where you're seated at one of more than 30 bars. The drinks aren't cheap, so bring your mortgage papers. A loan officer is there to help.
