The George Thorogood concert was "high-energy boogie-blues" with 40 years of memories that my wife and I relived in this 3 hour rock and roll blast! George is the best!

Have attended a number of events here. Really like the retro Ancient Egyptian decor. Never had a bad experience here. Last show was the Russian ballet. A great event. This place is a real plus for Concord!

Saw Celtic Thunder and our seats were in the balcony. It was a great view and due to distance the sound level wasn't too bad and you could almost enjoy the music. However, there is absolutely no leg room. Several in the party were under...More

Capitol Center for the Arts is the best venue for an evening out for a play, concert or comedy show. Great Date Night venue! It's clean and prices for drinks are reasonable.
