“Great concert ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We sat up very high to see Bruno Mars, the view was great but the acoustics were horrible. Thankfully Bruno Mars was still fun to watch! I don't know if we would chose this venue again for a concert, if we did we would definitely sit lower.

“Great Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

We went to see Bruno Mars and we had nose-bleed seats, but even from where we were at the music was awesome and you could still clearly see Bruno either on the stage or on the screens. Also, getting in and out was pretty easy considering the place was packed.

“Nice Arena with ample parking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

This arena hold a lot of people and hosts many different types of events. I have attended many different events here over the years. Every time I have ordered seats, they have been in a great location, except for on one occasion. This one time I had to sit very close to the top of the Arena. I do not have a fear of heights, but I felt very sick to my stomach and could hardly see anything because our seats were so far from the stage. Otherwise, I have had a pleasant experience each time I have attended an event at Colonial Life Arena
