NBA StatementThe NBA released a statement announcing that the season will be suspended. The NBA will use this hiatus to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic. We will also provide updates on concerts and shows at Talking Stick Resort Arena as information becomes available.
In partnership with Valley Metro light rail, Talking Stick Resort Arena and the Phoenix Suns have established the “Rail Ride Event” program, which allows guests who purchase a ticket to an event at Talking Stick Resort Arena to ride Valley Metro light rail at no additional cost, on the day of the event.
Through Rail Ride Event, Valley Metro will recognize Talking Stick Resort Arena event tickets as valid light rail fare on the day of the event for four hours prior to the start of the event, through the end of the transit day.
In addition to Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury games, Talking Stick Resort Arena hosts nearly 200 events each year, including concerts and family shows, with the venue’s longstanding partners Live Nation and Feld Entertainment. Tickets for every event at Talking Stick Resort Arena, which attracts over two million visitors annually, will be valid for the Rail Ride Event program.
Two important things to know:
You are required to keep your event ticket on your person when riding light rail and must show your event ticket to a fare inspector upon request. Failure to show a valid event ticket can result in fines ranging from $50 to $500 dollars.
Talking Stick Resort Arena event tickets are good for light rail only; they are not valid as bus fare.
No traffic, no parking hassles, no reason not to have a great time! Visit www.valleymetro.org for schedules and maps.
