My husband and I were here for the Chris Stapleton concert. It was easy to access from our hotel and the security was excellent. They utilized both metal detectors and thorough bag checks. Food and drinks were fairly inexpensive although there weren't many options. My...More

Under normal circumstances this is a fantastic venue for concerts. Internally, it remains so. However, due to construction entering the facility is a nightmare. Due to today's security checks and the incomplete entry areas..it is likely you will arrive late for your ticketed event. Lines...More

For 50 years, have always had a good experience here. Have never encountered any drunks or hecklers. Have always felt safe walking from parking garage to here.

Alot of construction, but areas were clearly marked and clean. Seating is in need of updating. Could use another woman's bathroom.

Very nice venue for large show and athletic events. The building is currently receiving some remodeling and a facelift which should serve to improve the facility.

We traveled to the Civic Center to see the Ringling Brothers circus one last time. There is plenty of parking right at the center (only $3) or in nearby garages (only $1.75). This is not a large facility, and it appeared well maintained. The only...More

It was a nice venue, except the aisles in between each rows of seats were a bit narrow for my liking, and I felt like the seats were right on top of one another. I was at the concert by myself and stuck in between...More

Price of tickets would probably determine that. Floor seats are usually closer, but you also do more standing. Level one seats were fine for us and had great sound and visibility
