I've attended concerts and sporting events here. Parking can be tough and there's can be a good quarter mile walk which can be unpleasant in rainy or cold weather however, the venue itself leaves one with a good seat. There's no "nose bleed" section and every seat is really a good seat to enjoy the event you're attending.

this place is good because it brings a lot of acts that otherwise wouldn't be stopping in JC. Tickets are pretty reasonably priced as well. Parking was a nightmare though and I watched some guy roll his car into another car and tons of confusion going on. I saw ZZ Top here and was seriously disappointed they don't serve alcohol.... More

This place is bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside. We went on a Friday night for a concert and there was also a local football game going on at the highschool adjacent to the arena. When we heard there was a football game going on, we were a little worried about finding parking and having to... More

I have been coming here for years to see the Shriner's Circus and attended many concerts and events here. The facility is always clean, but could use some updating.

The building seems so old and has a bad odor. They should have larger chairs because they are just too small to fit a larger framed person and I was uncomfortable the whole time I was there. I had a bruise on the side of my hip the next morning! Needs updating!

I recently attended the Elton John Concert at Freedom Hall. He was excellent--absolutely no complaints with the show itself. HOWEVER, Freedom Hall has, for all practical purposes, a monopoly. It's time they showed their patrons some consideration. First: the website: several people around us thought, like we did, that our seats were closer to the stage. They appeared to be... More

Freedom Hall is well-suited as a concert venue. Accoustics are good, seating is ample and well designed. Parking is ample.

Well we just saw Elton John there this month. In the Seventies it seems like there was a concert every two weeks. I hope they will get more shows there.
