Fillmore Charlotte - 1st Impression

OK...so I'm a huge Gov't Mule fan and the last time the band was in Charlotte they played the Neighborhood Theatre. What an awesome place to see a show. Since the Fillmore Charlotte was billed as all ages non-smoking venue, I thought this would be a good opportunity to have a fun night out with my wife and 14 & 16 year old sons. So how did it go? The band was awesome and played a fantastic set..that was a given... How about the venue...not so much:

1. Entrance - The entrance line was never clear...an melded into the line for will-call tickets and new ticket purchases. No real organization.
2. Tickets - Only two people checking licenses...before you could again get in line and get your ticket scanned for entrance. What an unnecessary bottleneck!
3. Bathrooms - While there was a nice spacious bathroom, it was all the way in the front corner of the venue, opposite the front door and across the stage. Be prepared to wade through a huge crush of folks if you have to go. Big lines and hard to navigate inside the venue. At least one additonial set of restrooms is needed, one for each side of the venue.
4. Bars - There are 4 bars, 2 on each side. The lines were long, and when I had my turn, you can get a 12 oz. Sam Adams, 12 oz. Carolina Blonde, 24 oz. Bud Light or 24 oz. Miller Light, for the economical price of $9. I'm not sure what the mixed drinks cost. Oh, and the bottled water, or tap water (or anything wet for that matter my younger son wanted....forget about it...I did wander around for about 30 minutes and was able to raise a stink and finally get something, but come on!!!
5. The venue itself- Basically a very nice warehouse with 4 levels, and all of it standing room only. 2000 + people moving around, talking, see and be seen. At times the sound system had a tough time competing with the background noise and almost had a muddy quality.

In summary, for my musical experience dollar, the Fillmore Charlotte was less than satisfactory as compared to the Visulite, and especially the Neighborhood Theatre. Gov't Mule ....Good. Fillmore Charlotte...Not so good.
