    Great outside venue. Tons of security and staff. Lines for confessions can get long, but they do have water fountains.

    This roped off area on the lawn is a unreserved family section anyone may go into. No smoking or drinking permitted within these ropes.

    The lawn seats are great; however, summer concerts are extremely warm. This venue is great when the weather cools off, but miserable during the summer.

    So the gates don't open til 5 when the first show starts at 515. Stupid!!! Not really VIP when you have to open the gate yourself to get into the parking area . Just saying...

    Ps! If you buy a seat, try sitting!

    the general admission seats are almost better because you can lay in the grass..bring a blanket :)

    A great concert venue to see shows in the AZ sunshine! tip: dress for the weather misters don't always cool you down.

    I had lawn seats for the Luke Bryan concert and they were so worth it! Everyone brings lawn chairs and blankets to relax on and the atmosphere throughout the entire arena is great!

    Cheap GA lawn seats! Tons of fun when your favorite artist or band comes into town. Just saw Luke Bryan here, was probably one of my favorite concert experiences! Needs better parking system though!

    Traffic to/from this venue sucks! There are no cops to direct traffic due to state budget cuts. 2 hours in traffic BEFORE the concert, and 2 hours in traffic AFTER the concert is unacceptable.

    Great open air venue. The best place to see a summer concert. Best seat, the lawn seats. Best guy to see there, Jimmy Buffet.

    Edmund Hubbard · February 16, 2013
  • Drew P.

    Really great outdoors venue. The lawn seating is pretty far out so I suggest paying extra and getting real seats closer up!

    Journey, Foreigner and Night Ranger July 24, 2011. It's a bit of a drive but definately worth all of the great shows they put on here. It's now curruently known as Ashley Furniture Homestore Pavilion.

    This place is awesome for outdoor concerts. The parking is free, however, food and drink prices make it up for it. 4$ bucks for a water bottle? Ridiculous

    Ticket scalpers are right outside. You might find a deal, or not. Or you might get ripped off. Good luck.

    The lawn seats are cheap and the grass is nice in green. Enjoy it if you don't mind sitting far from the stage.

    Petey Pablo · August 31, 2010
  • Petey P.

    Do they have free parking? I think they do! Right on!

    Petey Pablo · August 31, 2010

    Thank God they have big screens here!

    Usually VIP parking doesn't actually exist. So don't pay for it. Just drive around to the east side of the venue and park right by the front :)
