  • Aside from a facelift, the Coliseum is still the same. Long lines just getting into the venue. Then pay an outrageous price to park. ($20, And that's with the online discount I got) Then there's anoth...  more »
  • We go to A LOT of concerts! We were pleasantly surprised at convenience, friendliness of the entire staff, and the cleanliness! Would ABSOLUTELY seek this venue out again for another concert!  more »
  • The revamp of the Coliseum is great - easy to get into and out of, expanded dining options, etc. Acousticis, though, are unchanged from before. (Too bad this is so far from Mahattan & easy access.)  more »

  • This was my first trip to the newly renovated Coliseum. Whoever came up with the idea to add more women's bathrooms needs a raise. What a huge difference! I was at a predominantly female show, and there were no astronomically long lines! Everything else was obviously updated, but very similar. As usual, snacks and drinks are ridiculously priced. The parking fees are now $40! You can purchase a $20 parking pass when you buy your tickets online, so make sure you don't forget to do that.
  • Great venue...parking was a breeze. Parking price is a little steep, but I am used to parking in a field and walking 1/2 mile, so no complaints on ticket price to be parked in a parking lot literally 50 yards from the doors. Seats are roomy, cannot imagine there is a bad seat in the whole place. Its on the small side, but the sound quality was fantastic. Drink and food prices are expensive, but so is every other venue. Excellent show, getting out of the parking lot took about 15 minutes-shocking to me because we usually have a much longer wait at other venues. Overall, it was an amazing trip and I will absolutely be going back!
  • My 1st time visiting the arena was post construction. That being said, I had a great experience. There are multiple paths for traffic flow and the upfront seating is sub level. I could foresee attending this venue again. Also, I was able to obtain parking in advance ($15).
  • Not sure what the construction actually added to this place. The outer ring where the food is located is way too small and there's not enough vendors or bathrooms. Ridiculously packed full of people; you're fighting through a sea of humanity to realize the bathroom is a 20+ minute wait. Seating is slightly better than it used to be but still not very comfortable. The workers selling beer etc seem to ignore the higher up seating areas. Sound system and center stage are great though. Metallica put on an awesome show when I went recently.
  • Came here during open house on grand opening weekend, so I can't speak for how things are when there is an actual event. Renovation looks great from the outside to the inside. Seems like there are enough bathrooms for a change. The concourse has been fancied with a paint job with wooden beams overhead to emulate a ship (I think). There is a bar in the main area across from the box office. The other concessions are in the same area as before in the outside ring, a decent selection of local restaurants. There is also a vip lounge in the lower level as well as a few more concessions. The seats are very improved from before, cushions are nice and firm. The lower level seats are fancy bleacher seats and are not as comfy but still good. Legroom is tight and might be an issue for a taller person. The stairs do not seem as steep as before. The site lines are still very good from any seat in the house. As many people have said, parking prices for premium events will be ridiculous. Food prices are comparable to other sport venues in this area, as in not cheap. But overall this place received a much needed overhaul for the better.
