We went to this stage production for a matinee which was outstanding in the scenery mechanics.and the talents of the actors. The dance troupe and orchestra were as excellent as I have seen in Vienna, Germany, or England. This is a Touring Company but it was as well done as it would be on Broadway... I was having some limited... More

There is always something going on at this facility. There are events for people of all ages, races, religions, and all walks of life. From the Legacy Arena, to the Concert Hall, to the Exhibition Halls, and to the Children's Theater there is always something going on. I just saw Phantom of the Opera in the Concert Hall and it...

I wouldn't normally review a venue like this but I had such an excellent experience while attending a concert recently. All of the security and staff I encountered were very friendly and helpful and this is not always the case at such events. We had some difficulty locating our seats and were helped along the way by many smiling faces.... More

I understand Birmingham doesn't have too many like massive places to hold events, concerts, etc. However, I just wish it was in a better location and it could use a face lift. This place has been exactly the same since I was a little girl and that was 30+ years ago when my father and I used to watch the... More

We visited the Concert Hall to see Phantom of the Opera. The production was outstanding but there were some issues otherwise. We had to buy tickets - months ahead of time mind you - through a broker. They guarantee you to be in a certain block of seats, but don't guarantee a particular seat. We were 2 rows from the... More

Out of all the national tours I've ever seen in several cities, this venue is by far my favorite. Parking is well organized, readily available and exceptionally safe. The people are spectacularly friendly and the layout is very convenient with concessions and bathrooms available around almost every turn. We came for Phantom and loved every minute of our time here.... More

We visited April 11th to see Phantom of the Opera and it was the most amazing experience of my life. The venue was amazing, we were only 4 rows from the stage. All the employees we spoke with were very friendly and helpful. There was a waterfall outside the concert hall that was just beautiful and the perfect picture opportunity.

Good venue for large events. I have attended the Christmas craft event and cheer leading competition events at this location. The hotel attached to the center is convenient and easy to access.
