    Great views and always a fun place to see shows. The beer and drinks garden out back is open now and they take credit cards. Win!

    Love it! Summer only, dance or just listen to free live music nearly every night: local, tribute & oldies bands of various genres including rock from old school to classic to current, Latin & country.

    Seated outdoor venue-- very unique experience. Listen to good music (eg for concerts), while enjoying hopefully good weather, gazing at stars, and looking out into the water. Would come back!

    One of the coolest concert venues I've been too! It's right on the water, the sunsets are amazing, but bring a jacket, it can get chilly!

    Gorgeous theatre that provides a great view of the band and the ocean. It's one of the most unique venues I've been to and one of my faves!

    Great outdoor venue w/ good views & sound. The lot has always been relaxed & offers beach access. Get there early to secure the closer one for cheaper than VIP.Vending is usually decent.

    Colorful concert lighting can be tricky to capture, but very rewarding. Anticipate the shots to know when a performer’s face will be lit, and shoot for great colorful effects.

    When you sit close to the sky, you get to take in the view of the coastline, but not the performers. Just sneak to slightly better seats midway through the show.

    If the weather's nice, This is one of the best outdoor venues. If you drive though, tailgaters will wind up blocking several parking spots.

    This was a great stop on the Get $leazy Tour! It is on the water and you can see crabs swimming around! Also, the venue crew are hot!!

    Bump up the ISO - try setting the ISO on your camera in the 400-800 range to get better low-light shots, especially if your camera has a CMOS sensor like the new Nikon COOLPIX cameras.

    Beautiful and unique venue. The best seats are actually higher up, especially while it's light out.

    there's pretty much no bad seat here, had a great time sitting in the front, and up in the back as well... make sure you bring great company ;-)

    Take control of your photos - a Camera like the Nikon P300 lets you shoot great photos in low light with a fast f/1.8 lens and the ability to manually adjust shutter speed.

    If you have orchestra seats, don't wear any shoes you would hate to be ruined! High tide can cause flooding (happened at Maroon 5 Wednesday). Had to stand in ankle deep water until the end of the show

    If you're taking pictures at sunset or in low light, try turning the dial on your COOLPIX to Night Portrait mode. The setting allows you to take pictures with well balanced light while preserving the

    This outdoor amphitheater is one of the few that is fully seated. The views are great at this oceanfront theatre where the boats line up in the bay.

    Having VIP access is great, its the only place to buy alcohol but come prepared to spend $12 for Beer's on tap and glasses of Wine... no hard liquor here! Also, $6 for a bottle of water or a soda.

    This Long Island theater is where classic-rock buffs from the ’burbs meet their NYC counterparts. Whoever's playing, expect a populist, ballpark-style concert experience. Read more

    Awesome views during daylight hours, but don't forget a sweater for night. Brrr. Also - no alcoholic drinks served in the venue.

    Find the VIP tent & you'll find alcohol. Have a cab or car booked to get you back to Freeport station or you'll fall asleep waiting for the bus shuttle

    Beautiful venue but the beer situation sucks. We had to pay $30 extra to get into VIP in order to buy $12 beers. I have been to a lot of shows and never experienced anything like this.

    Get Creative - Try both wide angle and zoomed in shots. For example, get some of the crowd in the scene to help establish the mood.

    If there isn’t a lot of stage light, set the camera for monochrome instead of color, your photos will have a “classic” photography feel without the distraction of color.

    Get Close - even if you’re not in the front row, you can still get great shots. Nikon’s COOLPIX S9100 has a long zoom lens that lets you get up to 18x closer.

    Get there early or you'll be stuck parking in field 4, getting out of the lots after shows can be a nightmare.

    Try to park closest to the exit, otherwise you'll be stuck in the parking lot for half an hour, possibly more. Also no backpacks or outside food/drink is allowed.
