I was totally impressed by this gem of a venue! We traveled six hours to see two different concerts in a three day period. This was our first time to visit the Starlight. I read a few reviews before traveling so I would know what to expect. Due to the reviews I came in expecting a top-notch facility and I... More

Saw two concerts this week at Starlight. Earth, Wind and Fire on Tuesday night and then Kansas and Boston on Thursday night. The people working are so friendly and professional. Some of the outstanding people are Julie at the VIP entrance, Robin at the bar in the VIP lounge and Jeff (season ticket sales person). They all make you feel... More

Took our 14 year old grandson to see Sound of Music. Very impressed. We had not been to Starlight is several years and many improvements have been made. Our grandson is from a small town, so he thought he was in "big time" theater! Good performances by all!

If you get a chance to catch a musical or concert at this venue, DO IT. Great acoustics and vision from any seat. Can't wait for upcoming Chicago and REO concert.

Our first visit to this venue, smaller than Red Rocks and frankly much easier to get around. The weather was perfect, parking close with a quick exit afterwards. The performance was excellent by all three bands. We will return.

The wife and I enjoy classic rock concerts and the Starlight has at least a couple every year. The grounds and facilities are awesome, clean and well maintained. Even the back row seats are good seats. The crowds are well behaved, we have never seen any issues the four times we have been there. The restrooms are clean and the... More

Growing up about 90 miles from Kansas City, we made it a point to go to Starlight at least once a summer. I hadn't been there in years until we went Tuesday night to see The Sound of Music. What a wonderful time! The venue is still fantastic and they have added nice concessions, including an open patio bar. We... More

This was on her "bucket list", I think. To see the Sound of Music live on stage. This performance didn't disappoint at all. The lead, Maria, was outstanding. Same for the male lead. Not a weak voice among the main characters. This was a Broadway touring group filled out with locals. What made it even better was the weather was... More

My mom, sister, and I went to Starlight for the broadway show Sound of Music. My mom and sister have season tickets, so they let me use their third seat! Needless to say, it was spectacular! We had pretty good seats, but I feel like any seat is a good seat at this venue! It was perfect weather, 80 degrees... More
