Wife and I made first trip here Sept 2014 to see Chicago the band. No bad seats. Parking is close. Very friendly staff and management. This venue, while fairly new, is a gem for concerts as they have lots of drinks and facility is certainly user friendly. We'll return. If you're staying over night, book nearby new Hampton or Hilton... More

Just returned from seeing Chicago in concert. Beautiful venue. Ease of access with free parking close by site. All seats are chair backs. Plenty of beverages available. Food also. Staff friendly. Would definitely go back. We hope Pikeville will attract some great acts in 2015. The town is lovely. The drive down 23 was gorgeous with awesome mountain views.

Easy parking and access to several restaurants. Can not believe this little town has such a venue. I hope they bring more country.

Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center hosts two or three big name acts a year. The rest of the year they host local things like basketball, school events, some Disney children's shows, and even weddings. I've been to this venue three times. In 2010 for Shinedown. In 2011 for Tim McGraw with special guests The Band Perry and Luke Bryan. In 2012... More

A friend and I attended Daughtry concert late November. Stayed at nearby hotel and was fortunate to walk to venue. Have been to many concerts in various venues, really enjoyed this one. We were fourth row from stage, but all seats were good ones for this show. When we were walking back to hotel, traffic didn't seem too congested. Would... More

Easy to find the facility but parking is near to non-existent during the day time. Parking is approx. a block away to the back of the building and across the street from the front of the bldg. Plan to go early for events. Not fancy, but friendly.

I have seen a number of concerts at the Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center.We are very fortunate to have access to a facility in the Southwest Va.,Eastern Kentucky Region.The arena is large enough to accomodate quality entertainment but small enough to enjoy the performances in an intimate setting.The accoustics are very good and there is not a bad seat in the...

You can find some big name acts here. It is a smaller arena so there is not a bad seat in the house. Parking has never been issue and ive been 4 or 5 times.

The "Expo Center," as it is more commonly called, is a good-sized facility that has been constructed to accommodate various forms of entertainment. Because the main area is set up to be everything from an indoor football arena, a basketball court, and an exhibition floor to a concert hall, it tends to feel a bit awkward compared, say, to a...
