Recently my husband and I traveled to Texas from CA to visit family and take in a concert here for Dave Matthews Band. Based on pictures online we compared this venue to our Shoreline Amphitheater or Sleep Train Amphitheaters. Once we arrived however, we were so pleasantly surprised that this venue is actually a little smaller in terms of actual seats (which is good because every seat is a good seat) and the lawn area is the largest we have seen, and awesome because it too is close to the stage and so large it allows for people to feel secluded and spread out and not piled in and cramped like other venues. The Woodlands area that surrounds this venue too is awesome. The bars and restaurants and water ways and the whole area is charming and fun. The only initial downside for us Californians was that we are used to going to concerts where there are bars and areas to get shots and drinks in the main concourse. After asking 4 different venue employees who did not know where on the grounds we could get a real drink (all of the non beer drinks on the main concourse are made with wine base not alcohol), we walked all over until we finally found the Hard Rock tent where they serve alcohol. We were not allowed to take the beers we had just bought on the main concourse in so we had to stand and drink them before we could enter. Once we entered we were also not able to take the drinks we purchased inside the tent, outside the tent. Now, this is probably not a big deal for most people and something Texans are probably used to but for us this was confusing and didn't seem to make a lot of sense. But, in any case we popped in had a couple drinks then left and went back to grab a beer and head to our seats. Again, this venue is great. The proximity of any seat to stage is awesome, and the beef hot dogs and BBQ on the main concourse, delicious. .
