The 7,100-seat venue keeps all guests within 220 feet of the stage, providing a mid-sized theater for an intimate setting. The theater hosts about 120 events every year, featuring popular artists, such as the Eagles, Mary J. Blige, and the Dixie Chicks. The venue also hosts awards shows, family shows, corporate events, product launches, and television broadcasts.
