Located just north of BC Place Stadium, Rogers arena is home to the Vancouver Canucks NHL franchise. It was first opened in 1995 as General Motors Place, but the naming rights where purchases by Rogers Communications in 2010, thus the name change.
Rogers Arena has seating for nearly 19,000 fans for NHL hockey games. It was the venue for ice hockey during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver during which time it was temporarily called Canada Hockey Place.
In addition to hosting Vancouver Canucks home games, Roger Arena features numerous big name concerts and a number of other events throughout the year. If you don't have the opportunity to take in an event or game, guided tours of the arena are available for a nominal charge on Wednesdays and Fridays.

We were visiting Vancouver and thought it would be a great idea to watch a hockey game. It was a lot of fun and as expected the atmosphere was fantastic. As a first time visitor there were some surprises though. 1) We were on the HIGHEST row, all the way at the back... but the view was still fine. So if you just want to dip your toes in o experience it. It's not a bad option. 2) It turns out that you are not allowed to bring a camera with a detachable lens in to the arena. Leave your dslr at home. 3) You are not allowed to bring your bag/rucksack in. I had to leave it with security in a tent outside with all my valuables. We got everything back safely but I was still nervous. Points 2, 3 were not obvious when I looked at their website beforehand. So please take note.

We saw Sting at the Rogers Arena a few days ago. We paid $1500 for premium VIP packages to sit in the 8th row center stage. Overall, we had a good experience. The problem is that we were on an aisle seat and people with less expensive seats kept coming down the aisle and standing in front of us. I had to tell 2 dozen people to go sit down more than 3 times because they were blocking our view. Paying so much money and having people with lower priced tickets having the same view / blocking our view really pissed us off. Other people around us were really upset too. Finally we got security involved, and at least for the last 30 minutes they stationed someone down there to keep people out. Rogers Arena needs to make sure they are proactive about keeping the aisles clear in the VIP sections. We may as well have just purchased cheap tickets and rushed the stage! 2 stars for a nice evening and good music. Otherwise for the money we paid it was a complete fail due to a lack of security moving people out of the aisles in the VIP sections.

I had the opportunity to attend the Cure concert at this venue, and I must say, the overall experience was incredible. The area itself is perfectly suited for a music concert, providing an awesome atmosphere. We were seated in Club 108, and our seats turned out to be perfect, offering an excellent view of the stage. The evening was filled with enjoyment and we had a great time. Furthermore, the club hallway boasted numerous bars and food options, allowing for easy access to refreshments and dining choices. It was a fantastic experience all around.

Excellent acoustics. Parking nearby wasn't an option. Ran Out of parking for my concert event. Nice staff. Can only bring a small bag.

Went to see the Lauryn Hill + Fugees concert on Sunday. Venue is big and the seating really depends on what the performance stage is like. I recommend doing some research before booking your seats :)
