Visited the Verizon Center for the Queen + Adam Lambert concert on 07/31. The venue is clean and the staff are very helpful. No gridlock leaving the venue after the concert. Each level was releasing individually, which really made getting out very easy.

There is a Metro stop right at Verizon Center. The Gallery Place/Chinatown stop on the redline drops you off right there. Thanks

Not at all and especially if you're a party goer and really want a great view and to be entertained! The side of the stage seating is always a gem. Which I believe will be 120/121 section and or the same opposite on the left... More
