For a relatively small city, the Van Wezel attracts some big name talent and has very diverse musical and comedic offerings. But it's one of the sorriest venues for its size I have ever been in. The lack of a center aisle is just unforgivable. If you in the middle you are likely to become claustrophobic by the end of the performance. If you are near either side, you are likely to be constantly bothered by folks who have no choice but to climb over you since THERE IS NO CENTER AISLE. My advice is to skip VW and head up to Tampa.
