I have been to 20+ rock concerts in the past couple of years and this was one of the best organized and professional ran shows I have been to. Line structure was organized before the doors opened. There was plenty of staff wristbanding people for age indentification purposes for alcohol consumption. Doors opened up about right on time and there... More

We discovered the theater in 2013, and been back at least 2 more time. Love the venue. Love that is a small venue. We had seen Matchbox 20, Bad Religion, and recently Billy Idol. The shows are amazing. The area is just gorgeous, and parking was pretty good in the parking garage.

I see a lot of Rock and Metal shows around the world. This is a great venue for this. They packed in over 5000 for the Slayer, Exodus and Suicidal Tendencies show. That has got to be about almost twice capacity, well over what the fire code show have allowed. It was wall to wall top to bottom. The sound... More

Been to the Wellmont numerous times, just not so much lately since it seems like all the metal bands are going to the Starland. Have to say that the sound system is much improved since Live Nation took it over. I go to shows that are primarily GA and the Wellmont has a most generous floor space where you can... More

The SHOW: This was my first time at the Wellmont and my first time seeing Jethro Tull in concert. We had a seat in the upper balcony, the view was great, since this is really a small place, and the sound was also great. I can imagine that a hard rock band could make this a very noisy place, but... More

I think the most important thing in a theater is the comfort of the seat you will be in for the two hours or more of your visit. The Wellmont fails terribly in this aspect. The seats are like folding chairs that are chained together and are way too small for an average sized adult. It is very uncomfortable and... More

I attended the Lecrae concert at the Wellmont Theratre. It was a great show by Lecrae, Andy Mineo, and DJ Promote. I seat in the first row of the seating section which was a great location for me. The VIP section was seating room only. Therefore I believe the theatre was set up for young people who like to jump... More

I love the Wellmont Theatre (with some qualifications, of course!) We used to go there during one of its previous incarnations, when it was used as an art cinema. It's a gorgeous historic building dating back to the days of vaudeville, when going out was a special event and movie palaces that looked like Egyptian temples were in vogue. When... More

The sound has been weird at times but for the most part this venue is a pretty sweet one to see a show. No matter where you're seated or standing, you should be able to see the stage clearly.
