Pittsburgh’s new Consol Center, home of the Penguins, has been open for a couple months. I attended a Chris Tomlin concert there tonight. It’s a very nice building, and I quite enjoyed the concert. However, I don’t consider it to be a particularly good venue for a concert. Even though the ice was covered, they have to keep the temperature pretty cool so that it doesn’t melt. I had cold air blowing on me the entire concert. The weather has been a little cooler this week as Fall begins, but knowing I would be inside the majority of the day, I wore a short-sleeve shirt. I was downright chilly. Certainly, there is no better venue for a crowd that size, but the experience suffered due to the environmental constraints. Unfortunately, a building of that size would not likely sustain itself without sports events.
