Saw the Smashing Pumpkins show. Awesome acoustics. Beautiful setting. Parking right next door. The downside was that the seating was not optimal -- people like me who were there to see the show versus the fools who needed a beer every other song. It was pretty tight, and uncomfortable to stand and sit every other song.

The Midland is beautiful! The chandeliers are amazing! Stunning architecture. The sound is phenomenal! Easy parking right next to the theater. Although we did not have a drink, drinks are available to purchase and consume in the theater.

The venue is beautiful, the drinks were expensive (as you'd expect) but very tasty, your phone service gets more limited as you get closer to the stage, and you will definitely want to get seats as close to the stage as possible since the seating is tiered instead of sloping. Overall, a wonderful experience.

If you ever get a chance to see a concert in this venue do not turn it down! Delicious atmosphere, ornate decor, comfy and cozy. Great sound. Plenty of spots to grab a cocktail. Walking distance to an entertainment district. Clean and beautiful. Nice work KC!!
