“Holds Up Under Pressure of Several Graduations, but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

One would think with back-to-back graduation cerimonies all day the James Brown Arena would staff appropriately for restroom cleanliness and supplies. It's really absurd to run out of TP and have other unsightly indications of neglect. Doesn't reflect well on Augusta to all the out of town visitors.

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

The Civic Center (James Brown Arena) isn't anything special. It's average size (say Phillips Arena in Atlanta) and not many people want to book good shows here due to the crowd turnouts, but the good shows (popular at the time) usually do sell out.

“Never Going Back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

"I remember when you could be exited about attending an event at the civic center. I guess my emory is better than my children think if I can remember that far back but I see no reason to ever return. It is dirty, needs many repairs and the attractions don t attract me.

“Not a good place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Not the best place in town to be. High ticket cost, over rated shows, serly employees and not the cleanest place in town. Not a place I will ever go back to.

“hockey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We go here all the time during ice hockey season. It's an older venue but it works well for sports because of its size. The noise carries well in the arena
