DPAC adds yet one more reason I love living in Durham. The shows and events that DPAC are top-shelf and the facility is so nice.

“Great Venue for Small Concert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2014

Saw Lyle Lovette and His Large Band last night (again). This is a great venue for a concert, acoustics are very good and there is a lot to do in the immediate area. In addition to the acoustics, I think what sets this apart from Memorial/Meymandi in Raleigh is the easy entry/exit, very friendly staff, and overall setup. We drive from Cary and it may be easier/faster getting to DPAC than downtown Raleigh.

Thanks so much for sharing this feedback from your recent visit. Lyle Lovett was indeed a special concert. We're big Lyle fans and hope to have him back often.

It was also good to read your note that getting to DPAC is so easy for you. We hear this same feedback from lots of DPAC guests in Cary and North Raleigh. In fact half of all DPAC guests that live in the Triangle come from Wake County.

Thanks again for your support and keep the feedback coming!

“Entertaining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014

This place is state of the art and beautiful. Not a bad seat in the house, and the shows are Broad Way shows.

“Needtobreathe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

Fantastic venue for a concert. Had been to DPAC for plays like Lion King, Wizard of Oz and others but it was even better for a concert. Great pre-show acts with performances from artists with the movie The Song and a great new favorite, The Oh Hellos. The main event was fantastic as Bear, Bo, Seth & the rest of the band, Needtobreathe, never disappoint. They are a class act that admits to getting sidetracked from what's important. Love the DPAC staff and Durham. Even with the Bulls playing, this town can pull off crowd and traffic control.
