  • Very good place to have a concert. Felt safe with all the security. And was not a long walk from Parking Lot C to the Ampitheathre.  more »
  • This is a perfect venue for concerts most times of the year. Good harmonics and a good atmosphere. There is not a bad seat in the place!  more »
  • The Amphitheatre is nice. Sat in the pavilion and there are really not any bad seats. The bathrooms were plentiful and fairly clean. The food and drink are so overpriced it's ridiculous. $8 for a larg...  more »

  • Nice Venue. Parking is handled well. Plenty of concessions. Easy to get around. Would give it five stars except for the following. Sound quality wasn't as good as I had hoped. Also would be nice to have a steeper grade to the seated area. We couldn't see past the couple in front of us, so spent the night getting glimpses of the show.
  • Do yourself a favor and avoid this place! I will never go back again. The "free" parking you are assigned when you purchase your ticket is meaningless as they close and re-open access to the lots on a whim. We were rejected from parking in lots 3 times, including our assigned lot twice, before finally being directed into the parking lot of a nearby business. The hour delay caused me to miss almost the entire first act, which is what I came to see. Also know that the cover over the paid seats does not keep out rain. Any rain that blows in is whipped about by the fans and falls all over the covered area. The cover is still better than nothing, but don't expect to stay dry.
  • Great concerts. Seating was good a d staff was helpful. Drinks are expensive but no more than other venues
  • Gates didn't open until 7:00. As soon as the Gates opened, the first singer started. Lines to get in were so long that we missed a bunch of songs. Beer lined were way long and then there was no cold Bud Light once we got in.
  • A Perfect Circle was awesome here. I do wish they would have used the big screens so the people in the back could see more details from on stage. However, this was band preference. Great place to see any show really at any price level.
