Allegiant Stadium Review

Rating: 3.8/5

What We Like

  • Beautiful stadium with no bad views of the field.
  • A 15-minute walk from The Strip.
  • A wide variety of sports and superstar acts.

What We Don’t Like

  • Concerts at Allegiant sound awful above the 100-level.
  • Concessions are very expensive.
  • The current parking situation is a disaster.

Bottom Line

Allegiant Stadium is home to the Las Vegas Raiders, UNLV Running Rebels Football Team, and it also hosts concerts, sporting events, award shows, and more.

Parking can be a hassle, but the stadium is within walking distance of Mandalay BayLuxor, and Excalibur.

Concession prices are a bit high, but you can expect to find various food and drink options. An event at Allegiant Stadium is a great way to spend an evening in Las Vegas.

I have been to many events at the stadium, including the Pac-12 Championship bloodbath where the Utah Utes destroyed the Oregon Ducks.

My love of music brought me to the stadium on multiple occasions.

I stood 20-feet away from Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones at one of the most unforgettable concerts I have ever seen.

I saw the first rock’n’roll show at Allegiant with Guns N’ Roses and Mammoth WVH, where I stood at the Coors Light Landing and watched from the back of the 100-level.

I recently saw Metallica (and one of my favorite bands, Greta Van Fleet) perform the first post-COVID mandate concert. The mosh pit was a thing of beauty.

But I noticed one glaring issue with Allegiant Stadium from all of these concerts–it sounds awful. The stadium was designed for sports, not music. The sound quality at concerts is horrible unless you’re in the 100-level or directly in front of a speaker.

The sound at a concert is important because if you want to hear good quality music, then, unfortunately, there’s no other option but to be close-up and personal with the performers–which of course are the most expensive tickets in the building.

If you’re attending a sporting event, it’s a beautiful stadium, and there’s not a bad view in the building. Even if you’re at the top in the 400-level, you’ll have an enjoyable viewing experience.

Where is Allegiant Stadium?

The stadium is located half a mile Off-Strip at 3333 Al Davis Way, Las Vegas, NV 89118. It is within walking distance of ExcaliburMandalay Bay, and Luxor.

How much does parking cost at Allegiant Stadium? 

Parking is horrible. Please don’t do it. If you do, parking costs $100 or more.

You may also park at various casinos like Mandalay Bay and Luxor–event pricing generally costs $25-$50 with about a half-mile walk to the stadium.

What are concession prices like?

Allegiant Stadium’s concessions are very expensive, and you should expect to spend $20 per cocktail and $16 per beer for drinks.

If you want snacks, you should expect to pay $15-$30 for an entree and $8-$12 for a hot dog or popcorn.

Only T-Mobile Arena, The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and a few others are more expensive.
