Can't wait to see what this venues gets transformed into!

Sad to see the auditorium close after so many years of proudly serving Lincoln. It is incredibly awesome that St. Paul purchased the gym floor since their boys and girls... read more

The center has been replaced by the new arena here in Lincoln, the Pinnacle Bank Arena. Many suggestions have been made about the future of the old Pershing Center, but to date, no decision has been made. There is hope that the mural on the front of the building, can somehow be saved for a future use.

Sad to see the auditorium close after so many years of proudly serving Lincoln. It is incredibly awesome that St. Paul purchased the gym floor since their boys and girls basketball teams both took state championships on that floor!!

Nothing to talk about here. It is just a big gym. Acoustics are bad for concerts. Concession stands are scarce with long lines. Luckily this facility is in the process of being demolished, as it is not worth going to.

This is a very nice old sports arena constructed in the 1950's and means a lot to the US world of inline and quad speed skaters.

Parking around arena was metered (2hr spots) Mon-Sat. LOTS of spots though and free on Sunday. Ended up parking in a public lot and it was only $5 for the DAY! Arena is dated but did the trick for our event. Lots of seating for sure. Would prefer more informational signs to be up alerting me to the different areas... More

If the show is something your interested in and its there it is OK place to go but a very old venue that hasn't been updated. OK for Ribfest.

Thumbs up to roller derby. Thumbs down to hard-metal concerts. Venue is dated, but for the right event, it can be fun.

Son Jackson was able to enjoy his last time with friends by taking in a concert at Pershing Center. Mom dropped him off after a nice meal at a Mexican Restaurant in the Haymarket, another place you will want to take in while in Lincoln!
