Anyone who has ever attended an event at Baltimore’s Royal Farms Arena — whether it’s a hip-hop concert, an indoor soccer game or a performance of “Disney on Ice” — knows that as such facilities go, it’s firmly in so-so territory. The acoustics aren’t bad. The downtown location with convenient parking and transit options not far from the Inner Harbor is good. But it’s a bit small and cramped, lacking in amenities and really, really outdated. In short, it’s no Barclays Center, the multi-purpose Brooklyn arena that’s considered among the best such facilities in the world.
