I attended the Sam Hunt concert recently and I was shocked at how disorganized and basically poorly run this venue is. We got in line early for a 7pm show and missed the first act anyway, then had a hard time even finding anyone to...More

Overall this place is good. Saw Nickelback and Daughtry. My only gripe are the workers doing crowd control. We had end seats and the isle next to us has a LOT of people just standing there. One guy was overly obnoxious. Workers were in the...More

We stood in line from 6:40 till 8:30 waiting to get into the venue. We HEARD the first 2 acts, but only got to SEE the 3rd act. They can't handle checking in a big crowd.

I've seen three or four concerts here and love it. Being along the river is special and the sound quality is great. Could use more bathrooms, but that's typical anywhere.

I've been to several shows here and it's a very well organized operation in my experience. Any outdoor venue lives and dies with the weather, but here the seating area at least is clean stones (pea gravel) so there's no mud. Ground rises from the...More
