I've been enjoying events at this Civic Center for 20 years. Things as diverse as Carl Sagan speaking in an FSU special lectures series, Michael Jordan in one of those series, Kenny Chesney, Metallica, Michael Moore with Rosanne Barr and the Goo Goo Dolls, Aerosmith, charity events, FSU football events, an appearance by First Lady Michelle Obama and so many...

I've been to this civic center for several graduations and a small local convention in the last few years. I normally am not too blunt when it comes to negative opinions, but to be blunt this time, this place is kind of aesthetically displeasing. The smell and sights remind me of my middle school locker room and gym. I imagine... More

This is a great civic center I recently saw Joe Bonamassa were I left my debt card at the bar. When we left to go to a local bar I realized I had left it there went back and the bar tender had locked it up and remembered me when I returned. My wife and I have been to two... More

I have been to two events at the civic center. A monster truck rally when i was a kid, and a circus in my adult life. Both were mediocre. Some helpful information. The floor is paved, the seats are small, everything is overpriced, the main floor is small and does not accommodate much action. Probably good for concerts and sports,... More

We have visited the TAL-Leon Cnty Civic Center several times for a variety of events. The home show twice and each time were disappointed with the displays, and size for what it costs to get in. Attended several events and the facility needs a major facelift...restrooms and seating. They need better lighting for visitors going up and down the steep... More

Attended the FSU Basketball "Madness" event on Parents weekend. They made it fun. Civic Center, however, needs some work.

The last 2 concerts I attended here were exactly that: My last 2 concerts EVER at this venue! Cement floors, cement walls and a tin roof totally ruined Lyle Lovett's show and Bob Dylan's show. Crappy acoustics muddied up the performances by outstanding musicians.

The last one was a Disney Live show and the layout of the area was perfect. The attendants were very helpful and it's never too cold or too hot at whatever show we attend there. Parking is plentiful, although if there is more than one event going on there, the lot will get full and then overspill has to go... More
