Riverbend is fun place to listen to your favorite musicians. I have been to several different genres of music. The crowds are different for each performer but it's always fun. They have a mega-ticket that you buy in February/march for all the country performers coming that year. It is is well worth the money. It comes out to about 50.00... More

I went to this venue for a concert over the summer to see The Lumineers. My sister and I won tickets to meet them backstage before the concert. We were escorted to the location which was right outside portapotties. The staff said no personal pictures (with phones and such) except for what the professional staff took. They also said we...

Location was wonderful for a night concert by the river. Fun watching the boats going by before the concert. Seats were under the pavailion in the 2nd section to the right and gave a great view of the stage. Only complaint was the number of people walking around so when you are 1 row from that isle, they can get... More

Our first trip to Riverbend, and we saw Kelly Clarkson open for Maroon 5. We had "lawn" seating, which we were concerned about, since it has seemingly been raining the entire month of July. Imagine our surprise when we arrived to camp out on field turf! It turned a potential negative into a huge positive. It was sold out, and... More

The concert was well regulated making sure everyone was in the section they were supposed to be. When people on the lawn got rowdy security quickly took control of the situation. Acoustics were great.

The parking was...unusual. Riverbend itself was amazing. The workers managed to keep the place clean the whole time. The girls bathroom was actually clean, which isn't something I'm used to at large concerts. I will definitely be visiting again for another concert!
