I have been to many shows at this venue since it opened. Over the last year they enacted enhanced security measures that include the use of metal detectors. Just attended Eric Church, there were between 12k and 14k people. The doors opened at 5:30 and...More

We stood in line from 6:40 till 8:30 waiting to get into the venue. We HEARD the first 2 acts, but only got to SEE the 3rd act. They can't handle checking in a big crowd.

I've seen three or four concerts here and love it. Being along the river is special and the sound quality is great. Could use more bathrooms, but that's typical anywhere.

I've been to several shows here and it's a very well organized operation in my experience. Any outdoor venue lives and dies with the weather, but here the seating area at least is clean stones (pea gravel) so there's no mud. Ground rises from the...More
