Attended Monster Jam last weekend here, smaller than I remembered from seeing metal shows in the early 90’s. This place is in much better shape than the one in Richmond.

I attended a phish show at the coliseum and saw that the space was virtually identical to my last concert there 20 + years ago. It’s not a huge venue but sizeable enough to get great crowd energy. Fun spot to see a show!

Will be heading back there this fall for Phish tour. Staff are super friendly. The general admission seating makes it one of my favorites. Get in there and listen to some great music.

Awesome show with both old school and new school performers. The food was pretty pricey and not very good quality. The sound was difficult to hear on some performers.

I've been here a few times, and enjoyed the events I went to, but it's definitely not state of the art. That's expected as it's not a new venue. Great place to hold sporting events like high school basketball playoffs, or job fairs. Not the...More

It has been many years since we have been at the iconic Hampton Coliseum. Parking was free, access into the venue was quick and easy and being there brought back memories ranging from the seeing The Ringling Brothers Circus, Icecapades, The Virginia Squires, concerts to...More

Seats are not comfortable at all- a two or three hour event just about kills your back. Food way too expensive
