The sound system, food, and seating on the floor needs drastic improvement. I could not hear what the performers were saying. Also, I was seated on the floor and the chairs were so narrow, I had to sit sideways or otherwise I would be sandwiched...More

Our family was there for my little brother's college graduation last month. It was a very nice facility. I have nothing bad to say about it. I do love the lights on the outside.

Hampton Coliseum is one of the worst venues on the east coast for live performances. The building suffers from excessive reverberation making spoken word or vocals almost unintelligible. If your favorite band is on tour, pick a different venue.
