Arena Theatre

At Arena Theatre, nobody sits farther than 60 feet from the show. Most concertgoers who’ve squinted their ways through major concerts at other venues can attest that the in-the-round seating arrangement and revolving stage are causes for celebration. And the stars have noticed. Since the 1970s, the state-of-the-art venue has attracted a long list of legendary performers including Willie Nelson, Tom Jones, and Aretha Franklin. While their golden vocal chords ring through the stellar acoustics, fans sink into comfy seats, savor a flashy light system, and discard their unnecessary opera glasses.

Customer Reviews

Great venue. Every seat is worth it. If you like intimate party settings, this is it.

I love Brian McKnight but had not idea who Lyfe Jennings was. In irritation from the crowd being unfamiliar with his lyrics, Lyfe sang acapella and I now am a fan of him and his fine craft! I am grateful for the experience.
