    Been enjoying shows, concerts, circuses, and UT basketball games for 40 years at this multi level event center with loads of local food vendors!

    Know what? The chairs are actually spacious! The wine isn't half bad. They had a coffee porter on tap that was really impressive. That yard of margarita? Well I just should have known better. Blech!

    I've been to the Erwin Center for concerts, college basketball games and monster truck rallies, and each time I'm always impressed by how well the venue accommodates each event. Small, yet perfect!

    Don't be late to your graduation! Hook 'em!

    Though it's days are numbered, the Erwin Center is still Austin's most versatile large venue: aside from being home to the Texas Men's and Women's basketball teams and UT graduations, the Erwin Center

    Boyfriend and I came here to see FLUFFY!! Absolutely amazing. Wish we had bought our tickets sooner and been able to have better seats but still had a great time!

    The wi-call and the tickets are pickup and sold at the same window. Really? Waste of time.

    Old school stadium with old school sightlines. This is a good thing. Mega intimate.

    Don't ever support the Ringling Bro's Circus when they come to the Erwin Center (or anywhere)- they've been caught on film here in Austin abusing the animals- so awful! ;(

    Just left some gum under my seat... See if you can find it... Go Texas A&M!

    UT needs a better basketball arena. Smaller and more intimate. Maybe right on campus, where students would have no excuse for not packing the place.

    Will Franklin · April 6, 2013

    The seats are tight and uncomfortable.

    UNC left "the Drum," with a 59-55 victory over Tulsa in the 2000 Elite 8. On that UNC team was a freshman…future NFL star Julius Peppers.

    Don't buy seats in row 22 and if you're 60 or over forget it. Too many stairs

    The Longhorns basketball teams (men and women) hoop it up in the Erwin Center, which is also the home to many concerts, Disney on Ice-type shows, the circus and more.

    This multi-purpose arena (aka: "The Superdrum") is home court to the UT Men's and Women's basketball team when not catering to live concerts and other events.

    When there are long lines at the doors, walk around to the east side doors, where there's usually no line at all.
