“Great Venue if You Have Seats and Park Elsewhere”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Saw several concerts there including Maroon 5 a couple times, Kelly Clarkson, and more. Had lawn seats last time, and would not recomment them. They oversold the concert and there was only standing room available, and you could hear the singers pretty well but not see them much. Having seats was a lot more enjoyable in this venue, unlike many others where the concerts are just as great to see from the lawn areas. Pakring was quite difficult even if we arrived 2 hours before the start time; I'd recomment paking close by and taking a cab or staying a local hotel so you can be shuttled in.

“Outstanding venue and a bargain”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We purchased lawn seats for Keith Urban concert and were impressed by the acoustics, the professionalism of the security staff, and the surprisingly intimate feel of this 20,000 seat venue. Will definitely return!

“Great Venue for Concerts”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We went to see Depeche Mode and had lawn seating. Because of the shape of the lawn you can see the stage nicely from everywhere. The lawn is uncovered, but luckily we had great weather. Bring a blanket or low chairs. They also rent chairs. Supposedly you are not allowed to bring tall chairs but some people who sat in front of us did, obscuring our view a little. There are many vendors selling drinks and food (expensive). The sound was good and we had a nice experience.

“Uncle Kracker ZZ Top and Kid Rock”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

The wife and I drove to Tampa from Fort Pierce to see this concert at The MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre. The acoustics were pretty good, and even though it rained, we still had a good time! We will go here again if the right concert pops up (3+ hours drive).

“Last Time!!!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

This was our second time coming here hoping for the best to see ZZ Top! As expected the parking was a nightmare! Had to park on grass saturated from rain, many cars were stuck in mud. Had nearly 3/4 of a mile to main gate. After getting into gate and buying an $11 Coors Light and a $15 frozen drink the security ushering you into your seat said you couldn't bring the beer in to see concert! What the Hell, are you serious!! To top that off after we got to our seats many people around us had cans of beer, and the Marijuana smell was so strong it was ridiculous! The threesome in front of us wouldn't sit down, they were up dancing the entire time passing around the weed! This is the last time we are coming here! We left after about 45 minutes... Way to go Mid Florida Amphitheatre.... Oh yeah and try to get someone on the phone tht works there... Nobody answers and they don't return your calls!
