The venue is small, which is great since every seat in good. Unless, you sit to the left of the stage and they put up a tent to cover the sound equipment. We asked to be moved or a refund but were told the concert...More

Decent venue. Won’t attend a concert here again, they won’t let you stand for any reason. The security was just rude and wouldn’t provide any reason as to why you couldn’t stand, also wasn’t written in any of the rules listed by the venue. When...More

We went to see Gabriel Iglesias. The venue has been remodeled. The bathrooms are very nice, concessions are good (pricey of course) and the line moved quickly. The seats are terrible. You are crammed in like sardines. No room at all, short armrests, no leg...More

This is a really great venue for a concert. We came to see The Goo Goo Dolls and really enjoyed ourselves. The facility is fabulous, you can see the mountains behind the stage, it's fairly small but just the right size for a great show....More

First time here for a concert, and the venue is amazing. Design makes the show an intimate affair. There really isn't a bad seat in the house. Parking is in the casino garage and it was free. There was a bit of a jam trying...More
