It’s not much of an exaggeration to say that if you spend any significant time in or near Greensboro, and are any sort of concertgoer – heck, if you’re not an agoraphobe – you’ll likely wind up seeing a show here at some point. The Greensboro Coliseum Complex is comprised of five buildings, ranging in size from the 300-seat Odeon to the 23,000+ seat Greensboro Coliseum, the largest single-seat arena in the country; there’s also the 30,000 sq. ft. Pavilion, the 2,400 seat War Memorial Auditorium and the 167,000 sq. ft. Special Events Center, which has three exhibition halls and a 4,500 seat arena of its own. As for performance offerings, it would be more difficult to talk about what they don’t host here than what they do: everything from trade shows and flea markets to the Greensboro Symphony’s monthly Masterworks concert and the Triad Best of Broadway Series.
