Seats in front of the stage and then awful seats facing side on to the stage, then a 20 yard gap. We were... More

The Mobile Civic Center is an average arena. I didn't expect much due to the fact that Mobile is not a large metropolitan city nor do they have any professional teams, however, the center is large enough for large events including concerts (my purpose for being there).

This modern center has isle and chairs big enough to be comfortable through even a long performance and they book some top shows.

The civic center is really nice. Except the parking!! All of Mobile's downtown event are extremely well worth going to even if you are from out of town. Great old town atmosphere!

Don't even think about recording video or taking photos, even if you pay to get in. It's all about making money for them. The staff will come and stand directly in front of you and deliberately try to loud talk you. So tacky.
