The Madison Square Garden Company places the safety and security of our guests above all else. For that reason, we continuously assess and upgrade security measures across all our venues, including the recent introduction of more rigorous bag screenings.
To help ensure that everybody attending our events can enjoy unforgettable and safe experiences, we strongly discourage guests from bringing unnecessary bags, particularly backpacks. As always, all bags will be subject to rigorous screening which can delay entry into all our venues.
Your safety and security are of great importance to us and we look forward to seeing you.
No outside food or beverage is permitted in the venue.
