Madison Square Garden, known as the “World’s Most Famous Arena,” is an indoor arena located in Midtown Manhattan at 8th Avenue between 31st and 33rd streets. MSG has existed in some form since the year 1879, used in the New York metropolitan area for various sporting and festival events. The current structure, constructed in 1968, sits atop of Pennsylvania Station and is the home to the New York Knicks (NBA), New York Rangers (NHL), and New York Liberty (WNBA).
Out of the four major arenas in the New York metropolitan area, MSG stands out as being a home for major concert events.

The venue’s status as a legendary obelisk in the field of live music has made it a world-renowned spot for concerts. MSG has a capacity of approximately 20,000 when set up for concerts.
