    INDOORS: Must get there early, wait in line for gates to open. Long lines! Get the chairs behind the box seats ASAP or enjoy standing for 3+ hours. Outdoors is more mellow, get there early too.

    A nice little venue - bigger for outdoor shows - that hosts some great shows every year. The so-called Arena District can get congested, but the LC is typically worth the hassle.

    Don't buy tickets to their outdoor seating for large concerts(the parking lot is a stage)no water and long beer lines.Get it together LC.Other than that this venue rocks esp. outside on the lawn.

    If you ever want to skip the long line go to A&R Bar and they will let you in as soon as the doors opens. Works every time. Plus you can take your drinks in as long as they are in a cup!

    Best venue in Cbus the last guy can eat it. It's 100% better than the Polaris amp. Ever was, and who doesn't wanna be outside at a concert w no bad seat in house!??? Really? Ps... F yea Willie Nelson

    For quicker access to outdoor concerts, stand in the line for the back entrance. You'll need to have your tickets on you to get in.

    One of the best places in Columbus. Concerts usually start late and be sure to get a poncho cuz Columbus rains are unpredictable.

    One of the only outdoor places to see a show in Columbus! Enter through the back gate and hardly any line.

    Use the A&R deck for faster gate access. Read about it on foursquare and yelp. Beat the line by an hour!
