New York, NY (November 11, 2013) - Madison Square Garden announced today the grand re-opening of the All Access Tour, following the Arena’s unprecedented, three-year, top-to-bottom Transformation. Beginning today, this 75-minute tour will be open daily from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and will allow guests to experience the newly transformed Arena, while being immersed in The Garden’s rich history throughout the building. Madison Square Garden is a “must-see” when visiting New York City and the All Access Tour gives guests access to The World’s Most Famous Arena like never before.

For over 130 years spanning four different buildings, Madison Square Garden has been a staple of New York City, delivering the very best in sports and entertainment. With the new All Access Tour, guests will get to explore the Arena, which hosts an average of 260 events and four million patrons each year, and have the opportunity to walk where legends have walked. Guests will also experience the new amenities that have resulted from The Garden’s $1 billion Transformation — from the Chase Bridges to the VIP areas to the locker rooms.

Melissa Ormond, president, Madison Square Garden Entertainment and Dave Howard, president, MSG Sports said in a joint statement: “In October 2013, the completion of Madison Square Garden’s unprecedented three-year, top-to-bottom Transformation marked one of the most important moments in The Garden’s history. Now, with the brand new All Access Tour, guests will have a backstage pass, allowing them a behind-the-scenes look at the significant enhancements that have been made to every aspect of this historic Arena. This includes several new exhibits throughout the Arena that commemorate some of the most enduring and unforgettable moments in The Garden’s history.”
