I used to go to the Civic when the Shrine Circus or Barnam & Bailey Circus came into town! This arena is quite a lot smaller than the Qwest, but it serves it's purpose when smaller attractions are in town! I loved going there, but I hear that it may be sold, or torn down:(

The Civic has seen better days and is supposedly meeting the bulldozer soon, but it is always accomodating for all types of events and rarely are there lines at the bathrooms. Sticky floors and dirty areas from time to time, but that doesn't take away from the overall experience.

Went to the Straight No Chaser concert (highly recomended if you get a chance). it was actually in the Music hall that's part of the civic building. auditorium was good sound was awesome. could have a couple more places upstairs to get drinks so those of us in the balcony didn't have to go down about 7 or 8 flights...

Once a nice auditorium, the Civic has had its days. Age has taken its toll and it's probably not worth renovation. Ok to attend children's events, but wouldn't pay top dollar to attend an event there.

parking is an issue, surface parking is dicey if you're in anything bigger than a car.

Sad to say, but this location, which once hosted a presidential convention, prize fights, and famous concerts, just doesn't compete well with the newer venues anymore.
