This is a great venue for a concert. I was there for Chicago and Earth, Wind, and Fire concert. Great show! Parking was close and so easy to get out after the concert. There wasn't a bad seat in the house. I'm looking forward to seeing more shows there.

Enjoyed the concert, but really liked the venue. Had great weather, so was perfect for outdoor concert. My husband and I had seats under the covered pavilion. Lawn seating was great with several huge screens to see the show. Had VIP access with my concert ticket, which included a lounge with nice restrooms, food and drinks. Would love to go... More

We had great seats and the facility was nice. The only complaint I had was getting in to park and leaving the parking lot. We sat on 275 for about an hour and about the same amount of time trying to leave the parking lot. I expected that situation to be better since Riverbend's been around for so long. Other... More

The Concert was good,the seating great but the usher were really stupid. Couldn't stand up to take pictures they said!!! Then they were still checking people's tickets during the Encore. I went to the bathroom and my wife was right there next to her but still told me to show her my ticket. My hands were full also

Went here for the deftones and Incubus concert it was great. Watch out security is very tight. They honestly tried to stop people from taking photos/video with their cell phones. Glad I paid extra for under the pavilion seats.

We had pavilion seating-tenth. Row. Love the leg room, cup holders, ceiling fans. Took us about 25 mins to get out of parking lot. Lots of food and drinks choices. Big hit to get a large corona draft for 9 bucks. No hassle to get food oe beer. Plenty of bathrooms. Lawn seating is on Astroturf and you can bring... More

Been to Riverbend many times. It's always been clean and a fun atmosphere. There's a Pavillion with regular seats and lawn seats also. Kinda creates a unique experience and fun time. Plenty of restrooms, parking isn't horrible, clean park, nice riverfront views. Due to the recent overload of rain in Ohio, the main stage is currently under water, but there's... More

I was fortunate enough to get tickets up close, view was great, sound was great, not too loud and very clear. The lawn seats though, WTH? The pavilion design has to be one of the worst. Every venue has obstructed views on some level, but here the design creates hundreds of bad seats. The pavilion supports are multiple girders that... More

Saw a concert at Riverbend for the first time. Very nice venue and clean. Good spots for food and drink. Whether you are under the pavilion or in the lawn, all the seats are great! It was very easy to get to from the exit and close to Newport KY and downtown Cincinnati. It also has a nice view of... More

Attended another concert here last Sunday. They have really improved the lawn area since my last visit. The entire lawn is now AstroTurf. No more mud or slipping and sliding. They have also added more refreshment sales locations. Overall, this is a great place to catch a concert.
