Nokia Live At Grand Prairie
The Nokia Theatre, regarded as the first of its kind plays host to concerts of different genres, from entertainment to music concerts to family shows. With a capacity to accomodate upto 6350, the theatre has state-of-the-art amenities and exceptional acoustics to match. It also offers business facilities like meeting rooms that have been occupied by Fortune 500 companies, such as Microsoft and Capital One.
I went there for the American Idol concert and was really pleased with the venue. Very nice, although it could've been in a better place in the city. There wasn't much in the way of eating places around the theatre, we were expecting much more, but that's nothing against the theatre.
We travelled from Arkansas to the Nokia Theatre for a concert. The theatre itself is gorgeous. The seats are comfortable and spacious enough for bigger people, and they are elevated in such a manner where everyone can get a good view. The sound system was wonderful. The only complaint I have is the $12.00 parking fee for "regular" patrons and $25.00 for those who want closer parking. Since I paid $162.00 for 2 concert tickets, I didn't expect to get slammed with a high parking fee. This should be eliminated or reduced significantly.
It's a sad, sad thing spending $50+ dollars for a ticket and then enduring the truly miserable sound eminating from this stage. I have seen a total of 6 shows at this venue and REFUSE to spend a dollar more with this establishment. The saddest part is that a lot of good artists play there without knowing how truly dreadful it sounds. After my first show I thought maybe it was the sound guy or the board; then the second show was even worse and the third was unbearable and I had to walk out. I have had seats top level, lower level and GA on the floor (which is probably the only decent sound). My reccomendation for fans wanting to buy tickets: stay at home and listen to the album. My advice for bands: Smirnoff Music Center with an open air venue, lawn seating and sound quality that Nokia can NEVER deliver.
It's a sick sad thing when a dive bar in Deep Ellum can deliver better acoustics than a multimillion dollar stadium.
Not even mentioning the 40 mile out of the way drive,$15 parking, $8 beers and security so anal you'd think they were the TSA.
So what do I do when a really good band does come to Dallas and foolishly elects to play at this venue? I drive 3 hours to Austin to go see them.
