I base this review on my experience this past weekend. The LC has a great lawn area so you can pick your place. Most folks stand once the concert has started, and I suggest a... read more

The indoor performance space is loud, loud, loud. Wish we had bought tickets to get sitting. Guess this is just not my thing anymore. Or maybe it's just beastly hot in here.

This pavilion has both indoor and outdoor venues. We attended a packed indoor event last night. This was very little air circulating and it was stifling hot! Everyone was complaining about the heat. It definately seems like a venue for the younger generation. At least the indoor part does. You are pretty packed in there where when people are spilling... More

Great, safe place for a concert. We took my 16 yr. old daughter and her friend to this concert. I was Unsure if I would let her go to the pavilion without a adult. I would feel comfortable now. When we first arrived the line for the concert wrapped around for blocks and blocks. The line moved very quickly. Once... More

This isn't my first time at LC Pavillion, but it's my first time inside the venue, and it's an awesome place to attend a show. Sound was amazing, and the staff were all great as well. It was well organized. Plenty of parking available within close walking distance as well.

Columbus lacks good outdoor concert venues since Polaris Amphitheater closed. This is a good facility for youth oriented concerts for people who have no problem standing for three plus hours but for some of us older rockers with bad hips and knees it can be tough. Another complaint is they really pack people in for popular shows resulting in long... More

The 1975 concert was held December 7, 2015 at the LC Pavilion downtown Columbus Ohio. The line was very very long, the wait to get in was long also. The place is amazing inside, place to eat, get drinks etc. The view was great (standing room) and The 1975 sounded and looked phenomenal. This was the best concert experience ever.... More

Went to see the Scorpions on 9/22. It was outdoors (though they do have area for indoor concerts too). We waited in line for about 3 hours to get to the front of the stage. The lines were separated: ladies on the left, guys on the right for patdowns/security check. They also had a line for early entry but honestly,... More

Just as others have stated, there is no poor seat in the house. We arrived just as the opening act was finishing and found a seat on the grass close to the front. The lawn is well-maintained and our view was great. Skip the lines and go through the A&R Bar. There are clean restrooms downstairs and you can get... More

I base this review on my experience this past weekend. The LC has a great lawn area so you can pick your place. Most folks stand once the concert has started, and I suggest a blanket to sit on if you arrive early. The sound is clean and crisp. Entrance and exit are easy…lines should be expected like anywhere else.... More

Recently attended a reggae concert at the LC Pavilion. We came up from Cincinnati so we were not familiar with the venue or the area. The area is easy to navigate with plenty of safe, well lit, parking lots and garages. The lawn area isnt to big, which means not a bad seat anywhere. The pit is actually separated from... More
