  • Went to see Willie Nelson. Beautiful day for an outdoor event. Good thing too because you had to stand in excessive lines for all food and drinks. Then follow the line back to your seat. The big scree...  more »

  • This place is a dump. It does not have the facilities to handle a sold out concert and the facilities it does have were outdated in the 70's! Who wants to stand in line for an hour to get a drink? Who...  more »

  • After a concert you need people in the lots. Not 15 employees located by the light on the way out. It took longer to get out of there than the NFL Giants game. There were people trying to cross the six lane road the bridge goes over. It was a massive log jam.
  • I will never go to another concert at Hershey Stadium again. Luke Bryan and Brett Eldridge were awesome but the venue was horrible. It took us an hour to go 2 miles when trying to get in the stadium parking lot. They did not have anyone directing traffic for a sold out concert of 30,000 people plus Hersheypark crowd. Then parking was over a mile away from stadium and they were not running the tram. Also, the bench seats were ridiculous. We were squashed in like sardines. Never again, will I attend a concert at Hershey Stadium!!
  • Me an my daughter's at Hershey for Train. O. A. R and Natasha Beddingfield. Great birthday for me
  • Its a pretty cool mainstream stadium for the area. They bring in plenty of headline shows and the ticket prices are reasonable. If youre heading to hershey for a small getaway, you might want to check out what venues are playing and catch a show.
  • It's not completely horrible if you're a regular and know the "good" spots. But still takes longer than desired to exit, even in a good spot. But if you just park in any random spot or wherever they want you to, it will be 2 hours getting out. And if they are using the arena and stadium simultaneously, then you can add an extra hour getting out. The most frustrating part is the parking lots have several exits around the perimeter but they are always closed and make everybody leave the same exit. Absolute incompetence. Now, thanks to the childish antics of the Clairton football team, there are metal detectors and bag searches just to get in to watch a high school football game. Arrive early because these searches hold everybody up and the lines get huge.
