This was the best evening I have had this summer. Frankie Beverly was great as I expected. The addition of the Isley Brothers was awesome, as well. My only issue, the ticket indicated the concert began at 7:30pm, The Isley Brothers were...continued

WOW! Talk about getting your money's worth. The concert was long but well worth braving the night chill for. The seats were placed way to close together for comfort, but the option of moving was a plus. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves...continued

I purchased three tickets, one for myself and my two sisters. In spite of the cool weather we had a wonderful time! The parking was free and if you got there early, like we did, you didn't have a problem finding a spot. The Isley Brothers were...continued

Great music under the stars; however it was freezing. The new layout of the venue makes every seat nor on the floor good.

It was okay, they had us packed in there like pat rats. There was no room for movement at all between you & the person seated next to you. I thought my seats would have been closer since, I am a Red Velvet member, but it wasn't.

The concert was outstanding! I would recommend you have more information about parking options ($30 was a bit of a surprise). Also, there should be a more coordinated process for existing the parking lot (Traffic Control Management).

The Isley Brothers opened and Ron sounded great! Ernie is still a master on the guitar. Ron shifted into his Mr. Bigg mode and sang hits from that era. He closed with their first hit "Shout". I am a Maze Head since 1977. Frankie is always...continued

Excellent concert -- I loved the arrangements from parking, trolley rides (fantastic driver & entertainer on bus 604), seating in venue and it goes on and on. Very positive first experience and would definitely attend more.

Excellent time. Just a lot of vacant seats would have preferred seat choice.
