"Venue overall isn't worth the drive, you have to tork your body to the right to see the stage"

Seat Review From Section 102, Row 24, Seat 3
Jul 2016


Peter Gabriel & Sting Concert itself was incredible! But it wasn't worth the money ($250). From the moment we arrived the usher was an unfriendly bitter old man with an attitude. Why he's in the people & service industry is beyond me.

We arrived on time, but seemed like we were two songs deep until the distractions of everyone else late stopped. You have to sit forward in your chair and turn your body to the right in order to be comfortable facing the stage. The lady next to me actually asked me to sit back in my chair so she could see the "monitor"... um... this is a live concert not a movie. I told her that I'd actually prefer to stand like most people do at concerts. After a few songs, still nobody was standing and dancing. We're not that old people. Plus, I know the majority of you sat your asses at a desk all day...don't want to get up and dance to Peter Gabriel's "Shock the Monkey?" Instead, everyone just sat stone faced like a bunch of corpses during the entire show.

ONE lady behind us was enjoying herself and dancing, but the bratty snobs behind her told her "we didn't pay good money to look at your ass." Again, this is a pop C-O-N-C-E-R-T. Not a dinner theater! At one point, we couldn't take the boredom anymore and started to dance. The killjoy usher told us to sit down. I understand that sometimes people are uncomfortable being the first ones getting up, but nobody followed suit. What is wrong with you people? When you listen to music at home, do you just sit in a chair and stare into space too?

I'd recommend the show.. But, I'll never come back to this venue because the concert culture is so suppressed. Ushers take themselves way too serious, and need a good mouthwash.

Avoid if... you want to see the stage, you consider yourself "Big and Tall"

    • "Can't see the stage background but great seats for the price!"

      (Section 127) - -

      These seats are a side view but relatively close. I am 5'10" and the seats are stacked close enough that I had to angle my legs but are sufficiently steep that my 10-year old's view was not obstructed by the adult sitting in front of her. The sound system was suspended from the ceiling and not...

    • "Great Seats"

      (Section 116) - -

      We had no one sitting in front of us since we were right above the entrance with a direct view of the band.

    • "Excellent view"

      (Section 115) - -

      Seats were well located overlooking the concert stage. Easy access.
