My first, and unfortunately, last opportunity to see the Barnum and Bailey Circus Extreme. This was the last visit to the Granite State before the circus closes for good.

Had the pleasure of attending the Ringling Brother Barnum & Bailey Circus event at the SNHU Arena and found it to be a wonderful place. Modern, clean and comfortable. The seats are well pitched for wonderful viewing of the event. Will not hesitate to attend future events at this location.

We were just here for a concert and although the seats are comfortable, they are very steep and some seats should not be available for concerts as you only get a side view of the stage. The bar service was ok for a venue such as this, only beer and wine but prices were reasonable.

Actually a great place to see a show. I was in section 119 on the side of the stage & the acoustics weren't terrific but okay. The staff here from the security to the vendors were all helpful & friendly. I drove over 3 hours here for this show & I wasn't disappointed. Beware of parking which ranged from$40 across... More

The arena is a great venue. However, be careful not to buy seats in any side section with an aisle between you and the stage. There is constant traffic up and down the stairs to the concession level and your view will be blocked even when standing. Get your seats where you are closer to an aisle that is not... More

I love going to this arena for concerts because it gives you the conveniences of an arena but maintains a small venue vibe. You are not too far away from the action no matter where you go. Manchester is also a nice little city and easy to get around in. Friendly people.

My husband and I frequent the SNHU arena to see the Manchester Monarchs and we always have a great time! The arena staff has always been friendly, it's clean, and overall a great time! We would highly recommend!

On a Saturday night in the winter in Manchester, you'd think there wouldn't be too much to do, and so a hockey game might be pretty busy. But in this 9,800 seat arena, there couldn't have been more than 2,000 people. We brought a kids hockey team - 12 kids - and they told us all the "cheap seats" ($8)... More
