Comfortable seats and not so big that you feel lost in the crowd. Have watched many concerts there and it's always a great experience.

Recently stayed at the Kentucky Grand Hotel and by chance happened to be there when Melissa Manchester was performing at SKyPAC. Wonderful concert and very nice facility for it to be held.

I enjoyed seeing a show here a few nights ago. The parking was great, with easy departure after the show. I wouldn't imagine there is a bad seat in the house. This is my new favorite venue in Bowling Green.

I am not seeing anything scheduled at SKyPAC for the last week of March, but you could check their web site closer to time to see if that has changed. Google theskypac.

I'm buying tickets for Melissa Manchester in Feb for my husband for Christmas. There are plenty of tickets lefts, so I'd like a recommendation for seat location. Main floor center? 1st row side? Front row mezzanine? 1st time to venue.
