parking is an issue, surface parking is dicey if you're in anything bigger than a car.

It's in the process of being demolished, so... For natives, it held many memories such as big name acts of years gone by (Elvis, Chuck Berry, The Temptations, etc.) Enclosed within was the music hall that staged touring companies and concerts that demanded better acoustics (I saw Weather Report and Chick Corea there in the 80s).

Here is the deal probably by the time you read this the place will be torn down. the city plans on distroying this for some project in the near future. Check out Centruylink center or any arenas that are located in Omaha and surrounding areas.

I used to go to the Civic when the Shrine Circus or Barnam & Bailey Circus came into town! This arena is quite a lot smaller than the Qwest, but it serves it's purpose when smaller attractions are in town! I loved going there, but I hear that it may be sold, or torn down:(

The Civic has seen better days and is supposedly meeting the bulldozer soon, but it is always accomodating for all types of events and rarely are there lines at the bathrooms. Sticky floors and dirty areas from time to time, but that doesn't take away from the overall experience.

Once a nice auditorium, the Civic has had its days. Age has taken its toll and it's probably not worth renovation. Ok to attend children's events, but wouldn't pay top dollar to attend an event there.

Sad to say, but this location, which once hosted a presidential convention, prize fights, and famous concerts, just doesn't compete well with the newer venues anymore.
