“Went over to Quebec to see the super band MUSE, it was one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had. This location is perfect for concerts and sports. Great highway connections and exits, a dedicated taxi stop with hundreds of cars available and a bus line…all made to help the movement of people. This arena is better then some NHL arenas I been thru. So if you are looking to get tickets for the next concert show, and can’t get them in Montreal or Toronto, Quebec is one place that can accomodate you.” – Felix Mongeon
