Greensboro Coliseum Complex reviews
This is a great facility with multiple venues available. My wife and I were in town for a concert, but there was also a boat show going on, plus activities in the aquatic center. This is a terrific... more »
Attended show with family and friends. Venue seating is horrible with seats being too small and no space to move. We had floor seats and you could not stand in your space as they didn't allow for... more »
I saw a concert at the White oak amphitheatre in the complex and it was a really nice outdoor theater. It was clean had pretty landscaping around the stage and the sound was outstanding. We had lawn seats but the regular seats were nice too. My biggest complaint was the parking, they had several things going on in the complex that night and when we asked the people at one of the parking areas where to park for the White oak we were told to park on the opposite side of the complex. Overall I would recommend this place to see a show to anyone the sound was good and prices were affordable.
The people working there are fantastic and knowledgeable. Easy to get to from interstate or driving through town like I did. The parking ia really hassle free as well as leaving the Coliseum. The only thing is it can get a little nippy inside if you have to be inside all day.
