  • Anytime there a concert, show etc, We head to Richmond Coliseum. The traffic is always heavy. There beggars looking for handouts. I would watch my surrounding at all times.  more »
  • Wonderful entertainment. Something new all the time going on. Can not wait to go back again soon. Enjoyed it immensely.  more »
  • Although the Coliseum is an older building in Richmond, you can still enjoy Venues there. I saw KISS there last year and it was pretty much the same as when I saw them there back in the 70's. You can ...  more »

  • Building really starting to show its age. Still it’s a good venue despite this. I also have to say the event staff are top notch, very helpful and polite and take the time to explain security details in depth which helps the line go so much faster. Ample parking close by and reasonable.
  • Went to see Trans Siberian Orchestra on 12/6/17 and for the first time in as long as I can recall, I didn't leave ill-tempered. Even though traffic was heavy, the staff maintained a good attitude. Food vendors were packed, but food seemed to come out quick and overall, (maybe because it's Christmas?) everyone seemed in good spirits. There are NO BAD SEATS in the coliseum when you go to see TSO. The only reason I'm not giving 4 stars is the poor coliseum is tired. Gray and worn. A coat of paint, some kind of freshening of the bathroom facilities and she could be much, much better!
  • Great place. Floor seats are uncomfortable and extremely close to one another. Honestly, you'd probably be better off sitting higher. That way you can see over everyone else and have a slight bit more comfort.
  • Saw Disney on Ice. Easy in/out. Helpful staff. Would definitely attend other events there.
  • Loved seeing Trans-Siberian Orchestra, but there isn't enough leg room and the steps are too narrow
