  • Been to many Generals games and some concerts. It's a big upgrade from the old Civic. Not as much parking available as the Civic, but there is ample within walking distance. Pretty much what you'd exp...  read more »

  • GM Centre is a beautiful venue. This is my first time being here. Bar is fully stocked and have big cups to take to the floor during live events. Very reasonable prices. Event staff were courteous and...  read more »
  • Went to see the globetrotters April 13. The show itself was amazing, my boys loved it. Would definitely buy tickets to see them again. My issue is the way the GM Centre failed in crowd control, and effective security. We were there at 4:15 as the magic pass show started at 5:30, doors to open at 5:00. There was a line started along the window, we were the forth family in line. As people came in they followed suit in line. As space ran out people started another line which would be like the banks system. As 5:00 approached, the doors opened and a rush of people came in and they were first to enter. It didn't go over well with all the people whom had been in line for over 45 mins. Staff and security did absolutely nothing!! Security was useless, not saying a word to anyone. Even when it was brought to their attention they chose not to correct the issue.... Until a man in line got very vocal, and a "supervisor" came out with a scowl on her face and asked the gal scanning the tickets what was going on. She told her she didn't know who was first, bla bla. The supervisor talked to her then she Walked away. All in all the front door staff and their security team dropped the ball at this event.
  • Great venue to watch different entertainment performances. The arena is perfect for hockey. Every seat provides great optics for watching Generals games, OHL hockey for that matter!
  • Great venue. Good artists playing. Plenty of seating. Customer service very helpful with people with disabilities.
  • Nice place. Easy access. Has a big arena feel, but there isn't a bad seat in the house.
  • I just graduated here for Durham College! AWESOME!!! :)
