It is n excellent place for any event... easy access... good restaurants and a nice little mall beside it... BUT if u want a quiet, relaxing and unventful afternoon or evening.... do not go there on big games or concerts or even weekends... SUPER packed with people...!!!

This venue is getting a much-needed facelift, probably because of the threat of the MOA Arena, which is becoming a popular venue for games and concerts as well. Still, nothing beats the Big Dome for sheer size and nostalgia. And concert artists appear to measure their popularity based on how many times they're able to fill the Big Dome. Definitely a landmark that I hope will continue to flourish.

I love that it now connects to the MRT via the farmers mall and walkways, and to the LRT violet line through the Gateway mall. Makes it easy to get to... Except during UAAP season of course. :p

Coliseum is still in renovation, but still events like concerts and Basketball is still on going. It's called the big dome. It's not only used for local concerts but also for an international concerts, boxing, cockfight, beauty pageant most common is the Bb. Pilipinas. During lenten season Religious events are also held here. Parking lot is now big as well.

Went to watch a basketball game. The coliseum is not that clean maybe because of some people watching the game. The outside looks amazing but inside its a different story its ugly.

I always drop by here,since this is my home. Sometimes I watch shows here but all others I just enjoy the restaurants around it. It is also a hassle whenever there are shows here, there are too many people hanging around. It's nice to see though they are making improvement on the facilities.
