Let me start by saying I am a former recording engineer and toured for years handling stage sound for some pretty major bands so I know a few things about Concert Venues. The Bon Secours Wellness Arena is a pretty nice, intimate Venue. This was our first time here and my wife and I went to see Elton John in... More

Been here for sports events and it almost perfectly fits that need. But for musical acts it is less than great. During hockey season they cover the ice and simply place folding chairs in rows across the stage front. The permanent seats all face straight across the "ice" and that means craning your neck the farther you are from the... More

This is a small town, big city experience. We have seen multiple shows here. Everything from the circus to shania Twain. There is not a bad seat in the place. Best deal is when the offer the kids meal which usually contains a hot dog, pretzel and a drink for about $5. Great when going to the circus or the... More

I have been here both a hockey tourney and a Shania Twain Concert. If you are coming here for a concert, be rest assured there is not a bad seat in the house (assuming you aren't sitting behind the stage). The staff are extremely helpful and just want to make give you a good experience.

Saw Disney on Ice there, also a concert a while back. It's a very nice place, seems roomy even when crowded. Seats are comfortable. It's a clean place. Love going there to see shows. It's just well put together.

Seating area was clean and the lower level seats were all good. Prices were high on concessions. Parking was 5 dollars just right down the street.

This arena is pretty great! Its perfectly located in downtown Greenville. Its walking distance to tons of restaurants too. I saw Kid Rock, Motley Crüe and Alice Cooper here and had a great time! Everything is easily accessible. I would love to go back to see another concert here!

Attended the Beth Moore Conference on July 10th and 11th. Staff was very nice in helping us find our seats. Due to the amount of women in attendance they even changed the mens rooms to ladies room to accommodate the crowd. With the seating at BSWA every seat seems to be a good seat. It was a little dark and... More
