All time favorite, from living in Kansas City for 3 years is the Midland Theater....I think Nixon can attest to it's beauty

And my favorite local venue in Omaha, has to be the Waiting Room Lounge

Easily the Machine Shop. Saint Andrews in Detroit would be right up there too if it wasn't owned and operated by Live Nation.

I've only been to venues around Florida, some in Atlanta, and then some in Wisconsin. So not much travel experience to other venues :( If I had to pick a favorite local venue it would be House of Blues Orlando. Though The Plaza Live is starting to become a favorite as well.

Worcester Palladium gets most of the best metal shows in the area. A lot of the good smaller bands skip Boston and got to Worcester instead. Mohegan Sun in CT is good as well for a smaller arena sized venue.

As a touring individual The Machine Shop is the greatest. Kevin and his crew are all around amazing people. I also quite enjoyed The Norva in Norfolk, VA. As a concert goer, Red Rocks Amphitheatre wins hands down.

In the entire country, the best I've been to would be Ace of Spades in Sacramento, CA, Electric Factory, Philadelphia, PA, Chameleon Club, Lancaster, PA, HOB, Myrtle Beach, SC, and Amos Southend in Charlotte, NC. For an arena/large venue, my favorite is Hersheypark Stadium.

The Concorde 2 in Brighton, I've never seen a bad show there, the sound is great and the atmosphere is always killer.

Someday I want to come to England and go to shows at all of the famous venues.....the one time I came to London I didn't even have time to go by them.

 

Someday......

I love London, I couldn't live there anymore but I'm still close enough to go to gigs. The best time to visit for shows is November for some reason that month is usually rammed with bands playing here. The weather's crap mind.

Save up, it's not that expensive if you know where to stay.

I liked House of Blues in Cleveland quite a bit. Bogart's is meh but that's the only place in Cincinnati I've seen shows. Sucks that it's in the straight hood. LC Pavilion in Columbus is cool, has a nice inside and outside setup.

I don't know why I can never get the quote function to work for me. Jason, the acoustics and ambience at Red Rocks are incomparable.

One more for The Machine Shop. The Rave/Eagles Ballroom in Milwaukee is always cool to visit, as well.  It's an amazing building. There are tons of spooky nooks and crannies to explore.

The marquee is my favorite here. Very basic and the floor is on a slight incline making it great viewing even in the back. In Florida it was hob or the revolution in ft lauderdale. Having the option to be inside or out is awesome
