“SO MUCH FUN !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

First time visit. Just saw Blake Shelton. This is a great venue to see a concert. Sound system is very good as well as big screens placed in key locations to help you see the show even from the very back lawn area. As stated by many people the food and drink prices are very high but you can tailgate in the parking lot staring way before the concert begins. A couple of key things to be aware of is that if you are not old enough to be drinking the parking lot is patrolled heavily by police and security. You will be asked for an I.D. and if you can not prove you are of age the fun begins. We saw a group of people next to us have their vehicles searched from top to bottom and be written up with all kinds of citations because one person in the party was under age. Also the parking lot is a nightmare to get out of when leaving. Your best bet is to just relax and cook on the grill again as we did and by the time you are done you will get out in a matter of minutes. This beats sitting in your car without moving for 30 minutes at a time. Prepare to relax and you will have a very enjoyable night.

“GREAT NIGHT!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The concert was great as was the venue. Had gone to a concert a few years ago and was not really impressed with the venue at all. This year we really enjoyed it.

“Great Concert Venue!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I saw Black Sabbath there. Aside from the concert itself, which was great, btw, and how the seats and stage are setup, I liked how the parking was organised, and how the shops were laid out.

“VIP experience was eh, had MUCH better experiences at other venues”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We had VIP tickets for the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. Honestly, we did not care about much of the line-up and were only there to see Alice In Chains. This was the first time I had been to this venue in many years and it was my husband's first visit.

This VIP experience fell quite short from other Live Nation VIP experiences. Parking was great. The VIP section didn't open until around 3:00 pm. It was quite large and kind of behind the stage, which means we couldn't hear bands on the main stage very well. There was no catering offered, just purchase your own food. Huge disappointment. The bar was not well stocked and didn't even have staples such as Southern Comfort. They didn't put the TVs on to watch the main stage acts until we asked someone. Staff was not really friendly and made you felt like they were they only for the tip. Our concert seats were great, but they whole experience compared to other Live Nation venues was definitely sub-par. There should be some consistency between venues.
