Santander Arena Trivia
As if having a spectacular arena to be host to all sorts of sporting, musical, and all around entertaining events, one might think that the venue had all it needed to be a perfect experience. And you would be right, but the arena took things a step further by adding on the Reading Eagle Theater, a more intimate live experience that has room for shows ranging from 2,500 to 4,000 people. Added in 2004, the addition has been a wild success, with artists such as Dolly Parton, Marilyn Manson, Brad Paisley, and more!
Once you're inside the hallowed halls of this wonderful arena, you'll find yourself having a great time in no time while also regarding the decor and architecture with great interest, as some of it is a throwback to a distant past.
