Love to see concerts at the Schott! Great seats for a great price!! The sound was incredible and the people watching is awesome! Stay at the Blackwell hotel to beat the after-concert traffic.

Love to go to The Schott for concerts for several reasons...With very popular singers/bands that attract large crowds, it is still possible to get seats close to the stage for a decent price. Even when I have had seats in the upper levels, I have been able to see the singers/bands well. I haven't had any issues with the acoustics and felt like the sound quality was quite adequate. Seats are comfortable and the seating ushers are very helpful. My 2 favorite concerts there were with Usher and P!NK. Both used the wires to move out into the crowds for a better view for even the people that were not located in the standing pit around the stage. Food courts have a good variety of foods available. Memorabilia sales tables are not set up very well with people moving in from both sides without any organized flow. Concession staff waited until after the mass had overtaken the sales tables to try to redirect flow at the P!NK concert on 3/6/13. Unfortunately, some people that had been waiting in line for 30 minutes got redirected behind people that had just come up to the sides of the tables. Plan on waiting in your car or in a barely moving line when exiting the parking lot. Even with strategic planning with my car facing out of a parking space in an area for quicker access, I usually can't move for 30-45 minutes post concert, nothing that I don't expect with any concert parking.

I have been here several times to see different venues and have had a great time. The seats are very steep so hold onto the railings while you are walking up or down them.

The acoustics, as well as the configuration, make this a horrible venue for concerts. I have attended 2 there and won't be back.

Whether you are going to a concert, or an OSU basketball game, the Schott has ample seating, good viewing and is easily accessed.
