I have attended two prior concerts at this venue. It was over ten years ago. The venue appears to still be in good condition . It is a good outdoor venue. The concert was excellent and the sound was of good quality. Having attended the prior concerts, I knew what to expect in terms of traffic. The traffic gets backed up on Hwy 29/Tryon St. Once you get turned on Pavilion Blvd, it does move a little easier. We basically waited 40 minutes after the concert before we tried to get out. We took some snacks and tried to relax. We were able to get out without a lot of trouble. As long as you know what you are getting into in terms of the traffic, it will make your night and experience more enjoyable.
