City: New York
Address: 4 Penn Plaza

Though the Garden has popped eternally (since it opened in 1968, that is), it has played host to some of the biggest shows in music during the Complex Decade. In 2003, Jay-Z played his "retirement" show there, providing the raw material for Fade to Black; likewise, LCD Soundsystem played their final show at MSG in 2011. Rihanna became the first woman of the Caribbean to sell out the arena during her "Last Girl on Earth" Tour. (She had previously made an eye-popping appearance in '08 as part of Kanye's "Glow in the Dark" tour, where she performed "Umbrella" with Chris Brown.) Most recently, Jay-Z and 'Ye sold out three consecutive nights during the tour for Watch the Throne. In addition to hosting some of the biggest concerts of the past decade, MSG is also where the NBA's best jump at the chance to shine. Back in February of 2009, Kobe Bryant dropped 61 points on the Knicks, breaking Bernard King's record for the most points ever scored at the Garden. As of last year, the Garden became the second oldest NBA arena in the country.
