Went to see an ice skating show. Staff sold me an over priced ticket when many cheaper areas where empty.

Organized and easy to get around. Large venue for musicals and events. Plenty of parking. Nearby restaurants, fast food and hotels. Shuttle from hotels to convention center makes life easier.

Be going here for years but the sound system is wacked. I won't be going to the Jazz Festival this year because I can't deal with the messed up sound system any longer.

My and I goto a lot of events and arena type entertainment so when I say that the Hampton coliseum is a little under average it's true. 9/10/2016 we went to see cirque du soleil - ovo.

Great place have gone to tons of concerts here over the years. Very organized with getting you in the building and to your seats. They book a diverse group of acts to perform here. Great Place.

Terrific venue to watch concerts. Can see stage from every seat - the seating arrangements are elevated and nicely arranged for viewing pleasure.

Our family was there for my little brother's college graduation last month. It was a very nice facility. I have nothing bad to say about it. I do love the lights on the outside.
