The Coliseum is meant for cattle, not for people, It does not have A/C and Montgomery in summer is not the most pleasant place to be. The GC is showing its age and needs to be demolished. Sadly, this area of town is run down.

Seats are spaced too close together. I understand maximizing the seating but with a small child whose feet don't touch the floor the person in front kept getting there head kicked. It wasn't intentional just the spacing of the seats.

We went for a concert and are used to venues in Atlanta... needless to say, this venue is in some need of an overhaul. There was no air running and the smell of the fried food they were selling permeated the building. It is a...More
