The sound and seating is good at this venue. I've been to several events here and have no complaints. There is elevator and escalator access as well.

Beautiful venue for any type of live performance. I have had seats in various parts of the theater for different shows, and there is not a bad seat in the house.

Excellent performance of songs from Elvis Presley movies. We enjoyed the orchestra as well as the visiting band and vocalists, the Terry Mike Jeffrey Band.

CC has excellent sight lines from every seat. Back stage area is slightly confusing. Sound is very good. Elevator is very good as steps are slightly steep for older patrons.

Great facility, not a bad seat in the house for sound. Only wish Orchestra section had a middle aisle, lots of climbing over people if you're in the middle. Love going to events here

The Cannon Center is family friendly and also handicap accessible. The music was wonderful, great sound. Easy to get in and out of. Parking is not bad, but you do have to walk.

We take the kids to the Memphis Symphony Holiday event. We think the Cannon Center is a wonderful venue. We've never had bad seats and you can get in and out fairly easily. The venue is clean and relatively new, so that is nice too.
