The pageant is a great place to see bands EXCEPT when your a MINOR and you have to pay more to see bands and get stuck sitting in a kiddie section when the ticket cleary says ALL AGES SHOW! I am 20 years old live on my own pay my own bills payed $41.00 for the ticket and minor surcharge and got stuck in a very small minor section was not allowed to go into the pit on the floor unless i had a special stamp on my hand tried to get in for the last song as the security guards were givng me evil glares, no luck! They were rude and the music was way too loud for such a small venue! Needless to say, you lost customer I will never see a show at the pageant again! you suck!

this place has issues

I went to see Mike Birbiglia at the Pageant for my first visit. The view from our seats was fine, but there was no room. The dude sitting next to my husband was halfway on his lap. Thankfully the chick sitting next to me was really skinny, so we all shifted slightly to her side just to fit in the seats. Floor seats were packed WAY to close together. Reminded me of bac hotel conference room seating. Next time, we are sitting in the balcony.

Good and Bad

This place has become worse over the years. There is only one exception, the sound here HAS improved after many attempts. In the past if you showed up early enough to make it in to the Halo bar, you had a decent shot at getting a seat with a reasonable view. But these days you, the customers are treated like cattle shoulder to shoulder the whole show. And when you finally DO get inside it is revealed that they already let a good quantity of VIP's in and whole groups of tables are reserved. Five people deep at the bar is now a common occurence since the waitstaff is pathetic at best. You'll be lucky to see any of them past 9. For a venue this size they have very limited seating and even less capacity for bathrooms. Be prepared to wait and miss the show. And even if you are lucky enough to get a seat, without designated seating, anyone can stand in front of you-and they will. Joe Edwards may have had good intentions but the results are terrible. And all of his ventures have the rudest staff in the metro area (Blueberry Hill, Pin-up Bowl, Tivoli). If you're DESPERATE to see a band, then be prepared. Show up late, bring your own, pi$$ in the sink, and you could possibly have a good time.

Great place for live music, the views are great from everywhere. They don't serve food but allow you to bring in carryout.

Best Small Venue in St. Louis or Surrounding Area

Don't pay attention to the negative reviewers of this establishment. The Sound here is as good or better than anyplace I've been and comparable to the Ambassador Theater, American Theater or the Fox for sound. I've seen a few shows there and have NEVER been disappointed. The Strokes, 2 shows and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs were fan-friggin-tastic. I even took my teen age daughter and 2 friends to see Jesse McCartney....not my cup of tea but they enjoyed themselves thoroughly.

Doves Concert

First time at the Pageant and was really looking forward to a good show. Very limited seating for anyone over 21 and wanting a drink. The volume was so obnoxiously high and the sound mixing was so horrible we left a half hour into the Doves set. Acoustics are horrible and am certain this is the last time I see anyone at this venue.

why the pageant is crap

I have never enjoyed a single concert I have attended at the pageant. If you actually want to sit down,get there almost 2 hours in advance.secondly,the staff and security the rudest bunch of jerks I've ever had to deal with. ""you can't stand here,you can't do this,you have to shup now"". The idea of arena shows in general annoy me,but when I pay 25 dollars to see wilco,I would like good seating and a chance to actually enjoy the band I came to see.

I went there to see The New Left on 10/29/04....It's a beautiful venue! Very clean and bright. I haven't seen such a nice place to see concerts! Free parking and very near the venue. They really worked on this piece of art!

Oh how I wish there was a better mid-size venue in St. Louis than the Pageant. The accoustics are just horrible in my opinion and the drinks are outrageously expensive. The staff there is by far the worst. They are rude and harassing. I thought I was safe from the terrible B&D staff going to other venues, but apparently they provide a rent-a-jerk service to other venues when they're short staffed. A few years ago, they used to allow people to wait around the side of the building for a chance to meet the bands after the show. But now they keep the bands off at the other side of the lot and chase off anyone that just wants to get a picture or an autograph. The ticket prices are also outrageous considering you could see a much better show (with better sound and staff) at pop's or mississippi nights.
