This is basically a meeting room with a bunch of banquet chairs. Not comfortable! Seating is not tiered. Attendees that buy the cheapest seats then come up to the front and stand and no security makes them go to their assigned seats. Bars are located...More

Such great talents that perform here should not have the audience go away with any negative feelings....BUT, it is unavoidable at this venue! Be prepared to be packed into the event center like sardines with the most uncomfortable chairs I’ve ever seen at any concert....More

Attended the Harry Connick Jr concert. Drove 5+ hrs from Houston. Signage to find the correct door to enter through was poor. This is a huge venue - if you go through the wrong door you could be walking for a long time. You must...More

Had to stand in line for a hour. They decided to use metal detectors and got in to concert 30 mins late. Will not be back! Also all the restaurants had long line or 3 hour waits.

Nice venue for comics. The seating is all one level so keep that in mind when u order tickets. We could see easily because no one was standing. I can't imagine being able to see during a music concert. The only negative I have is...More

Cramped, poorly laid out venue. Cheap uncomfortable chairs, strung together in poorly labeled rows, mostly all at the same floor level. It’s a good thing no one yelled “fire”, because people could get hurt there.

Steely Dan was great & Fagan really sounded excellent.... except when he spoke in microphone. This venue is a large conference room, not a concert hall so acoustics arent the best. The band sounded great but mic system is not up to par. Luckily we...More

The show was good but the seating is not what you’d expect for major acts. The Event Center is a big ballroom with stackable chairs in rows. Not stadium seating, so it’s hard to see. There are large screens on the side of the stage,...More

Sound was good and our seating fine. Would suggest they move to more if a concert hall style venue instead of the portable seats on a flat floor

As in Texas all forms of dress apply with the majority being nice casual. I do remember seeing a guy in camo but thankfully he was the exception.

We were in the GA PIT a couple of years ago and there was no seating it was standing room only. Plenty of room just no seats.

Hello! All sections are divided with walkways on each side. The only sections that do come right up against a wall (where you'd have to go through several seats to get there) are 306, 303, 301 and 308. I hope that helps!
