Great Venue

We've been here a few times now and have never been disappointed. We get the covered seating because you never know.

This was a must see concert if you enjoyed the Eagles and the many songs shared by Don, Glen, and Joe. The corporate seating was an embarrassment to us all and it ticked the band off. Very rude indeed. The Tears for Fears piece was nice also.

Don Henley put on an awesome show! Great performance with very talented people as back up. CMAC is a beautiful venue, one big complaint. Corporate seating right behind row U, they chatted all night like they were in a bar trying to out talk the concert. Hooray for Don Henley to tell them to shut up! it is disrespectful to... More

Great show and a nice but restless audience . Easy in and easy out. Have seen many shows here over the years and all have been terrific.

CMAC is a great venue for outdoor concerts. It was recently remodeled and the sound and screens are much better than in years past. The box seats are amazing and have bottle and food service.

Our first show at CMAC and definitely not our last. Buddy Guy and Jeff Beck were great and sound was awesome. The venue is very well organized, food and drink were more than we expected and we had a great time. Parked in the premium parking so easy in and out. Can't say anything negative about it!

The performers were great but the show was marred by a poor sound mix. This seems to be a recurrent theme at CMAC

What a gem of an outdoor concert venue. We travelled across the border to see Ray La Montagne in concert at the CMAC. We were pleasantly surprized to see what a wonderful venue the CMAC is for viewing and listening. Also, many venues close by to purchase food and drink. Also real bathrooms!! We definitely will be looking south of... More

CMAC is a great venue to hear and listen to your favorite artist or bands! Only downfall to this is the price of a drink or a glass of wine - way too expensive but the acoustics are fabulous!! Much, much better sound than anything at Darien Lake. It is a small venue but well worth it just for the... More

We recently attended the Chris Stapleton show at the CMAC. I loved the venue. The grounds were beautiful! There were plenty of food trucks and other vendors on site so go early! Parking was easy (although they charged $10). Sightlines are great in the amphitheatre. We sat towards one side and the sound quality was not the best; I'd try... More
