Duplicate needs combined

This is now Bojangles Colosium which is already on trip advisor. Need to combine these two into one As to not confuse people.

This was the old Charlotte Coliseum and is now the home for some entertainment, and the Charlotte Checkers Hockey Team. Growing up in Charlotte is was THE place for concerts, graduations, and other major events. So glad they kept it!!

Now called Bojangles Arena. Attended a Fantasia concert at venue. The place is small with jammed with chairs squeezed into sections. The box seating provides a better view of the stage. The sound system isn't that great either. The redo can't happen fast enough.

I attended several Charlotte Checkers games there and the JROTC awards ceremony last year. This is a good old time arena that remind me of the Pittsburgh civic Arena when I started going in the 1970s. I did not go to any hockey games between 1985 and 1996 and was shocked at the sound systems and the production quality of... More

It's been a while, but every time I come here I love the concerts. Nice to sit out on a blanket. Facility seems well run and all that, but the big detractor has to be the logistics of getting out - or getting in when arriving just before a concert. Guess one should just plan ahead, but in accessiblity this... More

It's a very old arena and in need of being rebuilt from the ground up. The sound is fine... we have heard the symphony there but not a modern facility.

I have been to so many events here. It's not new, it's more historical. It was the largest domed building when it was built. It's still very servicable. I like the new arena, however this facility is easier to access and the parking is so much better. The acoustics are not always perfect for fine listening, but what arena has... More

I brought my daughter and her friend to see the Panic at The Disco show this weekend for her birthday. We travelled from Ky. When we picked up our tickets at 3:00 we were told we could enter thru either set of end doors. We arrived for the show at 4:30. I asked again if it mattered which line we... More
