On Saturday May 6th we attended the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra's Pop Series with Blood, Sweat & Tears Concert featuring Bo Bice. Terrific acoustics, wonderful songs and a great evening for all!

I went to Knoxville'a Civic Auditorium to watch Daniel Tosh. He was amazing. I hadn't been to KCA in a long time and WOW, felt like I traveled back in time. That place feels likes it is 200 years old. Crickety old wooden chairs that don't fit the average size American in 2017. Wish they would update it some.

Attended an Ice Bear game and although we were cheering for the visitors, we had a great time. Very friendly time and great selection of apparel. It is an older building, but it can really get rocking. Fun place to visit.

A very good facility and home of the Knoxville Ice bears, what a very good place to go for a hockey game. Easy to get to, centrally located, ample parking with easy in and out. There are overhead bridges to get from the parking facilities over to Auditorium but most people just use ground level. There are crossing guards and... More

We have been several times here watching hockey. Very nice venue. Never seen a concert there but hockey is better.

Saw Jim Gaffigan here; he was great! The auditorium is very nice and the seats are comfortable. Unfortunately, the everything else wasn't so great. We went to the late show that evening, which was supposed to start around 45 minutes after the first one. We arrived about 30 minutes early and the parking situation was ridiculous. The other cars were... More

Our recent return to this auditorium was a pleasant experience. We had seats in the lower balcony and having been at several levels over the years, the view was every bit as good as a lower messazine section, except at the orchestra level. The seating assistants were very helpful and friendly. The music acoustics are very good and we definitely... More

This is next door to the Knoxville Coliseum (a huge venue that has big exhibits and trade shows) but the civic auditorium is more conducive to a concert experience. It is roughly a 2,500 capacity Auditorium and several concerts are booked here every month. There are smaller, more intimate venues and bigger or more ornate spaces for concerts. There is... More
