Under normal circumstances this is a fantastic venue for concerts. Internally, it remains so. However, due to construction entering the facility is a nightmare. Due to today's security checks and the incomplete entry areas..it is likely you will arrive late for your ticketed event. Lines...More

For 50 years, have always had a good experience here. Have never encountered any drunks or hecklers. Have always felt safe walking from parking garage to here.

Alot of construction, but areas were clearly marked and clean. Seating is in need of updating. Could use another woman's bathroom.

It was a nice venue, except the aisles in between each rows of seats were a bit narrow for my liking, and I felt like the seats were right on top of one another. I was at the concert by myself and stuck in between...More

I've gone to events at civic center for years. Good facility. Was really bothered by events going on while renovations were been done. Didn't appreciate paying to be there while such strong paint fumes were in the air. Maybe they should complete work before having...More

Price of tickets would probably determine that. Floor seats are usually closer, but you also do more standing. Level one seats were fine for us and had great sound and visibility
