Great place to see a concert! Fantastic sound, comfortable and polite staff! I’ve seen Ringo Starr, Jethro Tull, and Jerry Seinfeld. Already have tickets to see the Beach Boys in 2019.

We went to see Lady Antebellum at this venue and were pleasantly surprised. It's fairly small, only holding something like 6k people or so. There is plenty of parking and not a bad seat in the house.

We saw Lady Antebellum here for our first concert in this fairly new facility. The seating is comfortable and the acoustics are great. The members in the band said it was their favorite place to play. We will be back here for sure!

This place is amazing! Seating is ideal, I do not think there is a bad seat in the house? There are dozens of drink stations outside the theater. Bathrooms are clean and spacious. Parking is great too! Not a bad thing to say about it.

The venue is amazing! Well thought out, with a great layout that allows every patron a good view of the performance. The sound in the SFC is the best I've heard yet. Being a longtime love of the theater arts, this is most definitely a...More

Very comfortable seats are available throughout the Center. Ushers are available for seating. Drinks available. The parking lot is uncovered. Earlier arrival is a shorter walk. I would gladly see another concert at Smart Financial Center.

The new Smart Financial Center is gorgeous! We’ve been twice now - once for a concert (Hall & Oates) and once for comedians (Dave Chappelle & John Stewart). The venue is fairly small, meaning that there are really no bad seats. I do feel that...More

We drove ourselves from our hotel. Got there about an hour early and had a 2-3 min walk to entrance. Note they do have security screening and handbag checks. If you want to get a snack or meal, earlier would be better... More
