Well, I guess I have to say that I’m disappointed. 1) We made the long drive to see Pentatonix. Though their show was great, it started 45 minutes late. I’m not sure if that’s the fault of the venue or of the artist, but we...More

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!

We went last night for the Bob Dylan concert. The venue is well organised with parking and queues were practically non existent. Feels intimate once inside, but the show was somewhat spoilt by an assault going on 2 rows in front of us. It took...More

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.
