The staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice size for a concert - Not too huge, but big enough to attract good name performers. Easy to get around and find restrooms etc. We were in the balcony and the view and sound was great.

Had a front row mezzanine seat for the musical “School of Rock.” Visibility and acoustics were excellent. Seating was a bit cramped and access a bit challenging. When both Ovens and Bojangles is in use, parking, especially handicapped, is really tough although police presence helps....More

I was fortunate to enjoy my neice and husband's graduation at the Ovens Auditorium. The venue provided adequate seating for a very large crowd enjoying watching family and friends receive their diplomas.The seating was comfortable and the view was good.

You can do worse than Ovens. Next to the iconic & cool "Charlotte Coliseum " ( Original ) , it holds its own. Not the Tabernacle in Atlanta, it still does a great job

I have been to several events at Ovens. It is not my favorite place as it needs to be renovated and updated to be more modern; however, parking is easy.

I am not exactly sure but all of the seats are good at Ovens. It's just an older facility but it is easier to get in and out.
