I’ve been here 3 times for symphonies and a concert. Carmel is decent little town with a few nice places to eat in the area. Tye performing arts theatre 🎭 is built very nicely.

There are a few things that could make this place better...More beer and wine stands (they generally have two), and more people to help with valeting cars.

The facility is beautiful and no where better to hear an intimate concert. That said.....drinks are priced outrageously high. I would also be nice if restrooms were on every floor.

We took the family for the Festival of Carols. Truly wonderful musical experience that got us in the mood for the true meaning of the Christmas holiday. Venue is amazing with fabulous acoustics. We were lucky enough to score the 'O' Box which was an incredible seat, not having to look over others heads and plenty of room to move around. Highly recommend any event at the Palladium!

We saw the Dave Koz Christmas show and as part of ticket price we received a free download of his Christmas album. This was NOTHING like that. In my opinion, either the much-lauded acoustics are overrated, or someone incompetent was running the sound board. Beginning with the opening announcement, the vocals were garbled or overwhelmed, the volume was too loud, and the drums and bass were too dominant. Result was that we left after half an hour. We then ENJOYED the live caroling and good cheer surrounding the skating rink just outside the Palladium as the snow fell. We've attended a dozen or more performances, several of them jazz performances, and we've had seats in every part of the house. This isn't the first time this excellent venue has delivered disappointing results.

We saw Gladys Knight who was amazing. The acoustics were perfect, and it is one of the most beautiful aesthetic experiences both from the venue itself and the lighting. However, there were people throughout with cell phone videos that were very bright and distracting. One person actually answered his phone and had a conversation. With tickets over $100 a piece this was just wrong. Even movie theatres have rules. This needs to be addressed.

Saw Jason Mraz and Raining Jane at the Palladium tonight, they were fabulous. The Palladium is a great venue for acts like Jazon Mraz, his band isn't too electrified. The sound gets real "reverberating" when the mucisians have a lot of electronic or electric guitars. So I enjoy the single singers or acts that are not too electronically assisted. I also usually choose to sit in the Ochestra box due to the sound being quite direct when you're sitting in the center of the seats.

Outside Paladium is more attractive than little confusing architectural design inside. It has 3 separate venues for different performances

Been there many times, always impressed with the facility and the entertainment. It is hard to believe that this venue is located in Indiana and not Vienna!
