We saw a band here that had eight members. All but two of them had instruments, and when they all played and sang, the audio turned to mud. Fortunately, the opening act was a singer with her guitar and a bass. They sounded fine. And...More

Recently went to see a Pink Floyd cover band, Wish You Were Here at the Newport. I've been to the theater several times, and they've all been good experiences.

Saw Johnnyswim here with general admission tickets. Love this place! So intimate! There are different elevations, so can find a spot where there isn't a head in front of your face. You can stand on the first floor, so go upstairs and stand on the...More

The newport itself is not a bad place to catch a decent act and good price. Not much seating, but good views standing. Good beer prices not outrageous for concert venue. Well worth going if there's a scheduled act your interested in seeing

Saw The Griswolds and San Cisco. Excellent show. Acoustics were okay, but this building was originally a theater back in the day. Great views from balcony, plus they had bench style seating in the rear both upstairs and downstairs. Tickets were $5.
