How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Experience was generally pretty good, but it started a little rocky when security made my wife toss her umbrella at the front gate. I understood the logic, but they really should have posted what you can and can't bring into the pavilion before you get on the trolley from Soldier Field. Needless to say she was not happy. Once inside it was all good, but food prices are really, really high. If you can do dinner before you get here. Its been a few years since I attended a concert like this as a spectator and it blew me away how rude people can be. Ben Folds Five is a major act and one which I was looking forward to seeing and people carried on conversations and wandered around as if the show hadn't yet started. In the end, it proved to be a very enjoyable evening and all worked out for the best, especially when she found her umbrella in a giant bin as we headed back to the trolley.
