    Good venue if you have seats. Hard to see the screen if you are in the lawn

    You'll be enjoying this view for a LONG time if you take the CTA bus 146 out and back. Concert ended at 11pm and walked to stop by 11:10 but bus didn't show up until 11:40 at stop 4593.

    Unless you want to get there 3 hours ahead of time, do yourself a favor and don't buy a lawn ticket!

    Ok venue downtown. Sound isn't as loud as bigger venues.

    Worst venue in/around Chicago to see a concert. They should have left it at 6000 capacity

    Zero concession stands on the lawn accept credit cards. You can't see the stage from the lawn. The video screen is off by at least 1 second from the sound

    This is my favorite outdoor concert venue. There is a free trolley shuttle to and from the garage and northerly island.

    Walk the Lexus Red Carpet and check out the new 2014 IS 250 F SPORT right past the main gates for a chance to upgrade your concert experience or win a ride home in style courtesy of Lexus. #LexusVIP!

    One of the most ignorant group running venues. Only spot in Chicago where you can't bring an umbrella when it is 60% likely to rain. No customer service. $13 for a drink

    It’s one of the best places in Chicago to see a concert – great views of downtown and right next to Lake Michigan, this is the ultimate Chi-town experience. – Team Live Nation
