Saw Crosby, Stills and Nash there. Small enough that you don't need a big screen to see what's going on, on stage. Wait line for women's potty is always long, but moves fast. Kiosk was also long, but great people working there.

Let's face it - this isn't Madison Square Garden. Having said that it is a perfectly adequate theater. We have never been in the arena, but this was our second time in the theater. We like this theater. Sight lines are perfect. The seats are very comfortable with plenty of legroom. There is no center aisle so there are more... More

The best part of our experience at the North Charleston Coliseum was the ride from our hotel there and back. We had the taxi company's phone number so we were able to get a car fairly quickly when we got out of the Nutcracker performance. I was with my wife and her mom who have seen many performances of the... More

The Coliseum is located near great shopping spots. The arena provides adequate seating and the staff was very helpful in helping us find our seats. There is quite a walk from the parking lot to the venue. We attended the Charlie Wilson concert and weren't disappointed.

This is great venue with good seating and great acoustics. We have been there for a couple of jazz concerts and enjoy an opportunity to visit Charleston. It is one of our favorite cities and the Performing Arts Center just adds to our visits.

The coliseum itself is awesome and a great size where there is no bad seat. Issue comes from parking and traffic. Parking is a good distance away for what you expect and even though traffic is expected...it was crazy for a show that wasn't even close to sold out. Overall though, it is what it is and a great place... More

Facility is well set up with good sound quality and seats are comfortable and set up for good viewing at upper levers. Downside is the parking is far from the entrance and mostly uncovered; rainy weather is a problem.

Attended in Feb to see George Benson. Parking was a distance away so we had to walk in the cold, be aware parking is five dollars and i think you need to have cash. We didn't know that. Everything about the concert was great inside and out seating was good. Will go again.
