War Memorial Auditorium has expanded to a 2,000+ capacity with an open-floor configuration.

“WMA always has been a first-rate performance hall, offering superior live concert experiences,” said Brent Hyams, COO at War Memorial Auditorium. “We are extremely excited to have the capacity close to what it was when the venue first opened in 1925. Originally, the capacity was 2,200, and that was reduced shortly thereafter to 1,661. Patrons consistently pack the house, and we are pleased to be able to kick up the energy with this recalculation.”

War Memorial Auditorium’s new venue capacity is 2,044. Prior to the increase in capacity, the theatrical configuration allowed for a maximum capacity of 1,789. The reconfiguration adds 255 tickets available for standing room on the floor.
