My wife and I attended the Feb 7 Ron White performance at the Bayou Music Center. The performance was great but the seats and facility was horrible. We had center section 24th row tickets on the floor (Sec 102, row X). The seats are literally connected folding chairs backed very close to the row in front. You better like your... More

This is the WORST seating I have ever paid for. We couldn't see the stage. Crappy folding chairs, linked too close together, lined up right behind the head in front of you. Duh, since the floor is flat - ever heard of staggering the chairs? How about enough room between rows for people to slide by you to get to... More

Had assigned seats but soon discovered NO ONE bothered to number the tables! The staff who were there to direct people were just as aggravated (and rude) as some of the attendees at this very important and otherwise worthwhile annual charitable event. As such, we weren't the least bit interested in participating in any of the auctions and couldn't wait... More

We saw the Kings of Mic Tour here in July, the tickets stated doors opened at 7:00, well we arrived a hour later to find a super long line! What a bummer! This was also the case at a concert at the Toyota Center, so maybe this is typical for concerts on Houston (not the case in Chicago). The venue... More

Bayou Music Center: Folding chairs sized for grade school kids and row spacing designed by an airline. Wow. Came to see "Rain". This show is not designed to keep people sitting down. But, without enough room between the rows and seats to properly stand, many people were having to keep one hand on the chair back to maintain their balance.... More

We attended a roller derby bout at Bayou Music Center, which is located in Bayou Place. It’s the only part of Bayou Place we went to, so this review is just for that. We had no problem parking, since there is a parking garage below the facility. As we started looking around to find the stairs, an employee asked us... More

We came to this venue to see FUN. perform on 2/13/2013. The event manager offered us VIP seating for a price, of course. The price was reasonable and included drinks. Our cocktail waitress kept collecting from us, with each service, making the actual cost of the VIP experience way to expensive. She quickly sucked all of the value out of... More
