This seems like the unicorn of music venues. No charge for parking, and you can bring some food and water into the venue with you! Concession prices are in line compared to any other entertainment venue.

Took in Miranda Lambert with Little Big Town. Awesome show! PNC Pavilion only so so. We had lawn seats which were good, had some space to spread out. Apparently it's not a non-smoking facility as everyone around us was and someone burned at least 6...More

After reading some of the reviews, I expected to be in complete misery in this venue. Yes, it was hot, as it is an outdoor pavilion and the temperature was in the 90s. The ceiling fans made the airflow decent under the pavilion and I...More

Bring your wallet. Their food and beverage prices are eye-watering. We dropped almost $100 on 4 drinks and 3 pretzels. On an up note, I’m recovering from a broken leg and their hospitality crew went out of their way to help us get to and...More

This venue was better operated when Verizon had it! Having said that, here's my run down. I paid $580 for two tickets in sec 2, 12 rows from the stage. Great seats, if you don't mind standing for 5hrs because drunk people don't sit until...More

Ok, so we took a shuttle service to the concert. We were on the bus in the horrible line and our driver was trying to drop us off. Every lot he would come to, the people directing traffic would tell him to keep moving. We...More

Went to see Lynrd Skynyrd Farewell Tour. A few main points. First, I strongly suggest paying the $35 for the premiere parking unless you really don't mind walking a long way, on gravel. If you can afford it, pay for VIP parking! Especially if it's...More

Unfortunately, PNC Music Pavilion has a antiquated smoking policy that allows people to smoke throughout the venue, with the exception of the seats under the pavilion. My recent attendance at the Outlaw Music Festival was disgusting. The cigarette smoke was so thick in the air...More

I dont know. My best answer is to call. Mostly young college looking individuals control the traffic and the parking area. Very small number of police. If I go again I will park by the exit gate all the way at the far... More

I wouldn’t buy parking. You can get out pretty quickly in the regular parking which is free. I’ve never really had trouble with bathrooms but using VIP may be easier with a child. I don’t think the VIP seats are that great... More

Yes. We use our phone and keep the tickets pulled up. They scan upon entering and to get back to your seats if you get up to go to the facilities or concessions etc. We never have a problem and it is truly much quicker. I... More
