Concert Venu

I have seen several concerts here and none of them have been bad. There is not a bad seat in the house. The drinks and snacks are a little pricy

I have attended concerts, sporting events, and other events at the Expo Center. The facility is great with lots of parking. Downtown hotels are within walking distance. Great venue, but I'd like to see the Expo Center offer more events.

We attended a banquet and graduation at the Exposition Center and were very impressed with the facility. The food was good and the decoration was very nice. The graduation the next day was beautiful. Very nice place for just about any event.

We saw Dwight Yoakam and Lee Ann Womack on 4/16/16. The sound was terrible on the side balconies. The artists did great, but it was very disappointing that we could not understand what they were saying. Also, need better controls on alcohol purchases. They were serving drinks to people who were well past their limit. Need to start stamping people's... More

I have attended several concerts at the expo, it's kind of small, but a very enjoyable place to go to. They offer a different select of venues for any age and or gender.

A very nice place to see a concert. There isn't a bad seat in the building. My only complaint is it was very hot.

This arena is a little on the small side, but it is big enough for the town that it is located in. The Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center could really be a great place, if the powers that be would allow shows that actually make money. The majority of what is there is basketball or entertainers that the city officials want... More

I've attended a few shows at the Expo Center. It seems that aside from those few, there is a lack of good artists..no variety. Mostly country and Christian. Very few good rock shows. The security are horrible as well. They have ugly attitudes, on some power trip, and make it impossible for folks to even get close enough to get... More
