Recently we attended a concert at the Civic Center. The bathrooms need updated. The entire coliseum needs a new update. Seems very dated and old.

Wonderful concert in a great venue for a big crowd. This facility is large enough for any large concert tour group.

This facility seems very well kept. We've attended a couple of events here and the staff are always on duty. Not the most cordial, but i guess I wouldn't be happy about cleaning up after people, either.

Make it a point to attend the WRCA Ranch Rodeo Finals the second weekend in November, 2016! Great entertainment, trade show, and working ranch horse show. Order tickets early for Friday and Saturday performances!

Amarillo is run by the good ole boy system that only lets it's people have and do what THEY want Amarillo to have..
