We had a work party here and purchased a box for the occasion. View and accommodations were great. The serving staff were friendly and prompt with our orders. A bit pricey on the food and box, but overall we had a really great time.

Just returned from John Mellencamp's concert at the Tribute Center. Great show Mellencamp can still put on a great show. Only issue was he didn't come out for an encore.

Have been to a few shows here. There really is not a bad seat at this venue as it is not overly large. The prices have always seemed reasonable. The bonus is that it is close to home.

Wonderful show and performance. The last time I was here I did not see the vendors and bar and stores so it was quite a surprise for me and I was very impressed. We will be back in the future for other performances.

Check out our in-house restaurant - Prospects Bar & Grill. Open 2 hours before the concert. Highly recommending calling in advance to make reservations.
