Overprices, not comfortable, cramped seating, horrible sound.
For rock concerts, this is not the place. The acoustics are not thoroughly researched to make the sound differentiate from static noise or music.
The old Summit was far superior in leg room for the seats and sound quality. The Cynthia Woods is even a better venue for rock concerts. This place is not for Rock concerts.
The drink prices are more then the cost at a Texans game.
As a concert venue it is questionable.
Eric Clapton was great, great choice of songs, great band and everyone played/sang with energy and precision. Sat is section 113, sound quality was terrible, worst in Houston since the Stones opened Reliant. There is no excues for poor sound quality. Toyota Center may be great for sports events but don't go for a concert unless your can sit close enough to hear directly from the monitors on stage. Clapton's folks working the sound boards made improvements after the first 4-5 songs but overall, sound was worse than Rockets old summit home.
The comfortably elegant steel-and-glass monolith hosts the Rockets, Comets and Aeros.. The Venue Knowing that a deeper foundation puts fans closer to the action, the architects sank the lower bowl, which comprises 60 percent of the seating, 32 feet below ground level. Without compromising sight lines, the arena seats 18,500 for basketball and 17,800 for hockey. Not only are the seats two inches wider than most, the scoreboard has the highest digital resolution of any built prior to the venue's opening, and the state-of-the-art sound system is said to be leagues ahead of Reliant Stadium's.
The Experience Spectators access the Red & White Wine Bistro with their ticket, whether a $10 or $500 stub, to enjoy the action with a glass of wine. The denim-and-diamonds set heads to one of the 92 luxury suites or 2,800 club seats, thereby gaining access to the Rocket clubs located in the east and west wings.
