We liked Skypac. Comfortable seats and small enough where any seat is a good seat. Relatively new venue. We enjoyed the gospel music concert we saw and the calendar had many good musicians coming to Skypac.

Comfortable seats and not so big that you feel lost in the crowd. Have watched many concerts there and it's always a great experience.

Recently stayed at the Kentucky Grand Hotel and by chance happened to be there when Melissa Manchester was performing at SKyPAC. Wonderful concert and very nice facility for it to be held.

I enjoyed seeing a show here a few nights ago. The parking was great, with easy departure after the show. I wouldn't imagine there is a bad seat in the house. This is my new favorite venue in Bowling Green.

We go often, whether it is to an Orchestra Kentucky show (SKyPAC is the Orchestra's home), or to a classic rock show like Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys.

I am not seeing anything scheduled at SKyPAC for the last week of March, but you could check their web site closer to time to see if that has changed. Google theskypac.
