Medical Devices/Pagers
As a gesture of respect for all guests as well as for our artists onstage/in the Orchestra Pit, please be reminded to that cellular phones, pagers, electronic beepers (including medical alert devices) are switched off or placed into silent mode before the performance begins. If you require seating adjacent to an electrical outlet to charge a ventilator or other disability-related device, please contact the Disabled Services Department two business days prior to you event taking place so that appropriate accommodations may be made.

Madison Square Garden is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable atmosphere. Any guest in need of assistance during an event should see an usher, security officer or guest experience representative.

Wheelchair Escorts
Patrons with mobility impairments who do not have access to a wheelchair may request a wheelchair to transport the individual to/from their seat, free of charge. Please be aware that our personnel cannot remain with you during the event, nor will they allow you to remain in or keep the wheelchair for the duration of the event. In the event a patron requires the use of a wheelchair for the duration of the event, we recommend bringing your own wheelchair or other mobility device. The escort pick-up area is located on the south (toward 31st Street) side of Chase Square at elevator alcove. Please allow for extra so that you may be accommodated prior to the event start. Simply ask a guest experience representative or a security guard for assistance.
