  • Amazed at the venue and how great the staff was. It’s a smaller venue than some concerts I’ve been to but handled the crowd very very well. Our seats for the GEORGE STRAIGHT concert were excellent and friends not on row 4 (in the stands) said the same thing. Very happy to have seen such a large country music star here in Evansville and our friends came up from TN. Great choice to build tourism. Can’t wait to see what or who they will showcase next now that I’ve been there for the first time in the 20 yrs I’ve lived in MADISONVILLE KY which is 45 miles away. What have I missed I wondered during this concert in the past. Highly recommend and now have alerts on my email for upcoming venues❤️
  • Lots of great music, great light show, flames and effects were great. The message about God and and hope we kept up and encouraged us much as the music did. Great job everyone
