We came for the Don Henley concert & really liked the venue. It'd be nice if the whole area was fanned & not just those on the floor.

My wife and I went to a concert and were very impressed. Great place for live music, not really a bad seat in the house. Very easy to get a taxi in and out with no wait. Can't wait to go again

There are plenty of restrooms and concessions. It's so much nicer now that the lawn area is turf. There is zero mud to contend with even after a day of rain. Also, the staff is always friendly and helpful. I have zero complaints. Even the...More

Very nice venue for a concert. Plenty of concessions and restrooms so there was only a small wait which is a huge plus as you go to see a show, not to stand in line missing the show. Great sound

Are there any hotels within walking distance? Or a short cab or Uber ride?

Response from Thomas G | Reviewed this property |
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
