    Sound quality sucks here. Do your hearing and your enjoyment a favor and bring a good pair of musicians ear plugs with you. Evens the sound out nicely and won't leave you deaf. Plenty online for 10-20

    "$250 fine of caught tailgating. It's a city ordinance". Tailgating also is sitting in your car drinking water to avoid the heat and waiting for gates to open. Thumbs down.

    Not worth it. Takes longer to get out of the parking lot after the concert than the length of the whole concert. And attendants are rude.

    Don't chug a gallon of vodka with 3 of your buddies in the parking lot thinking you will avoid paying for alcohol inside. You will only be seeing the medical office and/or the security office.

    This place is overly intense about rules. Open your water bottles in front of security and give them the bottle cap, food has to be in zip lock baggies, no umbrellas, no chairs, and you get pat down.

    You're only allowed to bring in lawn chairs that fold flat. If you bring one that rolls or has a cover you'll have to take it back to your car or rent a chair from the venue for $5.

    This venue kind of sucks. It's way out of the way from Chicago proper and with few exceptions the staff doesn't seem to know what they're doing. Only recommended if you MUST see the act playing.
