Waited for months to meet up with oldies friends to see an oldies favorite , Neal Sedaka at E-Center 2-9-13. The performance was wonderful and did not disappoint, however, the new E Center, was terrible! All seating was floor level and only top dollar seats afforded a view of the stage. Good thing we splurged for our seats & sat up front. Those in middle or back sections weren't so fortunate. I can't imagine how they'd see the entertainer. Climate control was awful as well. At points, air conditioning and fans went off making the air warm and uncomfortable. Side seating consisted of small banquet style chairs fastened together with minimal padding. Everyone sat slightly sideways with arms over the backs of chairs next to them to make room. Another option was sitting with arms outstretched in your lap in front of you to allow room for your neighbor's arms. You and the person next to you practically shared seats, which by the way were hard and thinly padded. Chairs in the center had more padding, but who knew? There was no mention of that when we purchased tickets. The stage appeared institutional and sparcely covered with black side curtains, making an unattractive background for the performer. Good thing the artist captured the eye. We get that Laughlin was desperate for another venue for performances, but this place is terrible. We will never go to another event there again regardless of who has billing.
