Went to the Bob Dylan concert Saturday night and it was just ok. Tickets 89.50 and seats very far back from stage. The whole deal about cell phones was actually ridiculous. We understood from Berglund employees this was Bob's rule-no cameras, no cell phones--- even...More

Nice special events center literally in the center of the complex. Renovated 5-10 years ago and no longer feels "underground." Front parking lot too "tight" feeling. Events offered at the center have expanded in recent years.

This place is nice enough. It is really good unless they have 2 venue's operating at the same time. If so, there is NOT enough parking available. Shuttles operate but is a hassle especially in rainy or snowy weather.

Visited for national volleyball tournament with family. Facility was clean and nice. Seemed courts were packed in the space and not enough reading for those in attendance

Even though parking usually costs extra, it is always well organized getting in and out for events. Seating in both the center and theater are comfortable and easy to get to.

Saw Martina McBride at the Performance Arts Center. Excellent venue and the acoustics are very, very good. Friendly person. Like most, I don't particularly like the parking fee but every venue has those.

Ever since Berglund has taken over the Roanoke Civic Center, they have charged $5.00 to park. The performances are already expensive, so to add a charge to park bothers me. We saw Martina McBride last night and had to pay. We have had to pay...More
