Everything went smooth.. Police directing traffic was great we walked from our hotel. It was a large volume of people bathrooms stayed clean and adequate.

Organized and easy to get around. Large venue for musicals and events. Plenty of parking. Nearby restaurants, fast food and hotels. Shuttle from hotels to convention center makes life easier.

Be going here for years but the sound system is wacked. I won't be going to the Jazz Festival this year because I can't deal with the messed up sound system any longer.

My and I goto a lot of events and arena type entertainment so when I say that the Hampton coliseum is a little under average it's true. 9/10/2016 we went to see cirque du soleil - ovo. Parking was free which is unusual and great for an event of this type, the security check was laughable at the doors. The... More

The sound system, food, and seating on the floor needs drastic improvement. I could not hear what the performers were saying. Also, I was seated on the floor and the chairs were so narrow, I had to sit sideways or otherwise I would be sandwiched between my husband and a stranger--extremely uncomfortable. And the food?
