“Night of the Living Dreads featuring Rob Zombie, Korn, and Scar the Martyr”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

The performances were great but man, this tour represented some kind of a low for the Civic Center.

Problems that I've noticed in the past continue to occur: the beer lines are excessive and have no order to them. People could probably spend their whole evening waiting. Crowd control in general isn't a strong suit, good luck getting anywhere quickly because people cram through every door imaginable and nobody attempts to bring order to the situation. New ones also cropped up, namely that security somehow missed a guy that was able to get up on stage during Korn's set and obtain a microphone before private security dragged him off stage. Musicians have been put on trial in Europe for protecting themselves when security failed them, but I didn't think that in a show this size with what you'd think would be an appropriate level of protection this kind of thing could happen over here. The Civic Center needs a serious operational overhaul.

“Good venue for a variety of activities.”
Reviewed 20 November 2011

Nice venue - parking is not great. Food options for activities are just fair except those that are catered.
