We went to Riverbend for the Rod Stewart/Cyndi Lauper show. What a nice place. Had never been they before. I was a little skeptical about seating because of reviews and lawn seats too so bought 4th row last minute. Would definitely go back. The restrooms...More

Attended a concert here, and was impressed with the facility. Parking was free, easy to arrive and depart, and not a terribly long walk to the theater. If you're sure about the weather being nice, the lawn area can seat a large crowd. The seats...More

"security" will kick you out at the drop of a hat. Don't spend your money here. You will be physically and verbally abused by the staff.

We enjoyed a great concert at this outdoor amphitheater, with by far the closest seats we've ever had to the stage. Good sound (louder in front sections). Great seats (we were midway in section 200). Seats have arms and backs, so good amount of room....More

Having never visiting this venue before, I wasn't sure what to expect. The astroturf lawn was a surprise, but not unwelcome. I was thinking about Blossom on the way there, but it seemed much smaller. Overall not a bad venue. Parking is super close to...More

I would guess that the closest hotel is 5 miles away. You can uber or take a cab but realize that your trip there will be cheap. The ride back might be over $100. depends on how popular the concert is
