A great place to see a show, I didn't know this was the first location of the Grand Ole Opry. Very popular for music events, the auditorium has lovely acoustics and has lovely architecture. Note there is fixed seating the balcony and padded chairs are put out on the main floor for ticketed events that are not General Admission. I... More

This venue is lovely and the staff was super nice and helpful. It was a little tricky to find(across the street from TPAC). There was plenty of space, until you got inside. The seating was very tight. The acoustics were terrible. The music, singing, and distortion often ran together in an overwhelmingly loud disaster. This may have just been fault... More

Unfortunately we did not have the opportunity to go inside the auditorium but we spent some time looking at the memorials outside. It's a nice place to walk around and you can learn some history as well.

We visited over Memorial Weekend and the venue was reserved for a wedding so we didn't get to go inside. The monuments around War Memorial were awesome. A must stop for those who are war/history buffs. There is a long wall dedicated to the Korean war, a monument dedicated to woman for their self-sacrifice during the war between the states.

I recently attended The Offspring's concert @ WMA. This was my first visit to this venue, and the my overall experience was definitely a positive one. The building itself is beautiful. It's a small venue (seats 2,000) and the sight lines are great. There didn't seem to be a bad seat in the house. The lighting is very good, and... More

Great setting for the Brad Sherwood and Colin Mochrie show. It allowed for easy access to the stage for the audience participation. There was a huge crowd on hand for the show but the staff handled everyone just fine and there were no long lines waiting to get in to the venue One amazing surprise was that Chip Esten from...

This was one of the most beautiful venues I've been to. No seat is a bad seat. Great place for a concert.

The show was amazing, the auditorium it self was just ok. They had one bartender who did a great job!! But with a packed house really only one was not a great choice. There is really no food you can get a warm pretzel or candy that is it and there is not room for much of a line for... More

Attended Chris Issak concert that was totally awesome. His performance was an absolute blast, but the venue was extremely tight. We were in the balcony center stage. The seats were so close together that I could not place my knees in front of me. It appears that I wasn't alone with this issue since others had their legs draped over... More

I recently attended the Marilyn Manson concert at this venue, and the only positive thing I have to say is that at least Manson put on a good show. The doors were supposed to open at 7:00 p.m., they did not open 'til after 8:30! Of course people were lined up to the street. It was 90+ degrees that evening,... More
