    Food is pricey, but that's to be expected. The Center was clean and the staff was friendly and polite.

    Great amphitheatre with nice views of Philly. The small Skyline stage is a good setup for more intimate performances on the grass.

    Amazing venue! Meet your ride home away from the venue, on a side street. They close the roads up to the gates fairly quickly.

    A more intimate and classy BB&T. Food trucks are great and bathrooms are clean! Buy lawn seats unless you NEED to be in front. Great view from anywhere.

    Large outdoor venue on the outskirts of town. Food and beer available, but nothing special. Bring chairs or a blanket for the lawn!

    If the Farm Truck is there (at the top of the hill next to the craft beer), you need to check out the Jerk Chicken Sandwich. So perfect.

    Best amphitheater in the tri-state area. Food trucks are a great addition.

    Park for free at the shopping center on 52nd st. (McDonald's, planet fitness, shop rite). instead of paying $15 to park at the Mann. Also hell of a lot easier to get out.

    Balcony seating for the Carnival of Madness wasn't the best. We would have been happier with first floor seating. Live and learn. Awesome music venue!

    Nice outdoor venue, but expensive parking ($15!), no non-smoking section since it's outside, and at an all ages show with several bars & little security where's the regulation of underage drinking?

    Make sure you bring a jacket if it is going to be cold. The walls of the theater are open sometimes

    Did you know you can get here on SEPTA? Stopping at major locations in Center City, the Mann Center Loop provides an easy one seat trip to the show. Read more

    Lots of people are willing to pay the outrageous parking, so get there early if you're paying to park so you can get close to the gate.

    Pay for the cheap seats, the ushers don't check tickets when you sit. As long as you aren't in anyone's seats, no one gives a shit.

    Bonus: if a show isn't sold out talk to an usher and they may be able to upgrade you to orchestra seats for free!

    Holy sh!t I think it will take just as much time to leave as the concert itself. Also. Verizon 3G doesn't seem to be holding up well. Friend's 4G seemed to be better.

    Why did bands ever stop playing this place? Greatest place to see a show in the Philly area. Glad to see it making a comeback.

    Wolfgang Puck delivers seasonal inspired selections at Crescendo, so frequent this spot often and on an empty stomach.

    Nice place- was here for sister's graduation, but complete BS that ya pay $15 for parking in the grass! Especially the graduates!

    I can't believe they have the audacity to charge $15 for parking. This is not center city, the stadium, or the airport.

    Great music venue. Come with very low standards for beer though. It seems they don't know there are other beers besides PBR, Bud, and Miller Lite. On the upside it saved me a lot of calories & money.

    Use the local bus. It was easy to get in and out of the concert and with just $4 round trip it's a great deal!

    The Mann is the greatest outdoor venue in the Philly area. Classic venue. Not as sterile as the joint in Camden. Whole lotta love here.
