    I would go to the bathroom before the break if not get ready for a long bathroom line girls

    Fantastic venue, but the drinks are pricey. Buy a small bottle of water and refill it at the water fountain/bottle filling stations by the restrooms.

  • Serge N.

    Great audio considering the outdoor setting for rock concerts.

    I've only seen concerts here and it was great! Pretty loud, you can see the band from most seats. The arena is pretty steep in the middle for the handicapped. Lots of food. Parking isn't too bad

    Really great place to see a show during the summer-beautiful venue with clean bathrooms.

    They have the best lemonade around! It really is fresh squeezed. Perfect thirst quencher on hot days.

    Don't know if I'll ever do the VIP Club again. Long lines, 1 bartender, and mediocre food.

    If you plan on eating concession goodies, BRING CASH!! All the good stuff doesn't take cards! ATM is US Bank. Funnel Cake is always worth that $6. Lemonade is only ice so that's a rip off.

    Apparently you're a "weirdo" or a "loner" if you go to the movies by yourself..So I brought my cat.

    Check the weather and be ready! If it rains, just get's a lot more fun than standing under an umbrella!

    Overpriced mediocre concessions have to die.

    Why are people wearing polyester in 90* weather?

    Mama Mia- again Starlight takes the cake for an outdoor venue

    The best outdoor venue for live Broadway this side is the Mississippi

  • Ramsey M.

    Such a great summer theater venue. Make sure you sit at least in Plaza 1. Anything else is too far away from the stage.

    Best summer camps ever!

    Starlight is the best place to watch a Broadway show or concert. Since it's outdoors, be sure to dress for the weather.
