If you are a visitor to Nashville....forget country music... go see a show here! Top notch performances and Broadway shows! Btw... you can get tickets at the box office during the day far lass $ less than the "on-line-ticket" sites. Go here - AND HAVE FUN!

I've been going to TPAC for years and it is always fun. Easy parking close-by, great concerts and plays. Just went the other night to hear Happy Together Tour with The Turtles, Three Dog Night, and more. The nice thing is they ALWAYS start on time. Plenty of eateries nearby and they understand you are going to TPAC at certain... More

This really is a great little venue. I tend to overlook it as it is sandwiched by a couple major national players in Bridgestone and Ryman. TPAC brings some marvelous talent and I am not the least bit sorry for any moment of time spent in this facility. This is a really comfortable, artsy place with great value and excellent... More

I drove up from FL specifically to see the Bill Maher show. My seat was 4th row, directly in front of his mic. It doesn't get better than that. I don't know if the no camera, no camera phone, rule is standard for the venue or just this show. The ONLY annoying thing, other than not being able to take... More

It is near Nashville city center and walking distance to the Honkey Tonks if you would like. Attire is semi causal , recommend long pants and shirts with collar for men. Valet parking if you wish, there is a fee. Parking is available in the area with parking fee.

We attended TPAC for the performance of WICKED. This was not my first time, nor will it be my last. I do wish the tickets for performances were a little cheaper to allow for more frequent visits, but all in all a good time.

TPAC hosts many varieties of events and shows throughout the year. The last one I attended was the production of "War Horse". I have been a season ticket holder and the staff is always on their toes and very helpful. They had some changeover in the valet service companies, but seem to have worked out all the kinks now. I...

Our family attended a showing of Wicked here. After attending other venues, I will admit I was a little disappointed in the lack of grandness of this center but it was still nice. Seating and acoustics were great.
