Never a bad seat. Small, intimate venue. Great acoustics. Nice wide rows of seating so no need to stand up to allow others past you. Convenient parking underground in the plaza parking garage.

An interesting cross section of acts come to the Egg. I my biggest criticism is sometimes it is hard to get tickets to the performances. Parking is great. There is an attached parking garage that is reached via elevators. Staff is incredibly friendly. Seating is comfortable and not cramped. No bad seats. The stage is simple and seems close even...

The Egg books some pretty well known acts for such a small seating area. Prices are fair and more of an adult crowd can be found. There is not a bad seat in the place. Plenty of parking. Staff was friendly.

It is easy to get to. Parking in the adjoining garage is very convenient and reasonably priced. The concert hall is easy to locate in the Plaza. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Price for seats was exceptionally reasonable and everyone had a good view. My only complaint is the bathroom facilities are too small. Long lines form quickly.... More

Comfortable seats, any seat location is great, fair price, good parking (sometimes $5.00) under the Egg, easy in easy out. Seen the Irish Rovers and now going to see Zucchero. I would agree with some long lines on the elevator and the bathrooms. Last time took the stairs, not a bad walk down it you can handle it.

Really nice venue to see a band. Seating was excellent and sound was great. Affordable to all. There is plenty of street parking after 6PM as well as the underground parking garage.
