The acoustics are great and most seats have a view of the stage except the first 10 or so rows. The unique architecture is an homage to Amarillo's airplane industry. Your experience will depend on the type of event you attend. Staff seem to vary widely and it can be confusing finding the right path to your seat.

We have been able to view the youth symphony here a handful of times. This place is beautiful. Very new and it is an ecellent addition to the downtown district. Very unique architecture on the outside and glowing designed stage on the inside.

We have been here for several events - symphony, ballets and opera. The Center is a very beautiful and modern facility. Nice large bathrooms that are easily accessible. Also, there is a cash bar for most events. A real jewel in Amarillo's crown!

Eight of us drove up from Lubbock and were absolutely delighted with the entire experience. We were surprised how wonderful the facility was in every aspect. The acoustics were marvelous and the sound was set perfectly. Lyle Lovett and his Large Band were fantastic. We will not hesitate to make the little trip up I-27 to catch an act at... More

Went with a group to see Lyle Lovett in concert, it was a sell out crowd. The band consisted of 12 pieces and they played beautifully. Lyle himself was very entertaining and the show lasted almost 3 hours without a break. We had very good seats to see the stage and hear. The building is well laid out and easy... More

My wife and I drove from Oklahoma City to Amarillo for a concert by Don Williams. We knew what to expect from the concert, but not from the facility. We were both amazed at the beauty and the sound. The event was a sell out and the event staff was very skilled in helping people in and to their seats.... More

Only been here once but do plan to go back as often as we can. We went for the first time to hear an excellent lecture put on by the Amarillo College about the Rwandan Genocide. The speaker was the hotel manager in Rwanda who was credited with saving over 400 lives. The Globe Center is very easy to find... More

This is the coolest building in Amarillo. I saw the symphony here and it was wonderful! The sound was outstanding, and the shape of the concert hall inside is a masterpiece.

I don't feel comfortable in this place because the steps are very steep and they don't have handrails. Haven't been there enough to comment on sound quality, etc.
