If you like the feel of a small intimate venue, this is great for enjoying famous acts up close. Lots of parking

Sound and view from all areas of the venue were super. We had bar stools in the back of the room which allowed us to get up and dance without blocking someone's field of vision.

We attended our first Natalie Cole performance at the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts a few days before Thanksgiving last year and enjoyed her performance immensely. The Center had recently been renovated and the acoustics were excellent; the seating comfortable; many helpful volunteers to lead you to your seat or to man booths to sell beverages; and ample covered...
