I frequent this venue so I want to post favorable as well as unfavorable. They are still working out glitches as a new venue. But on a favorable note I took the time to contact management after some glitches with the Dwight Yoakam concert. I can report they made it right as best as they possibly could. I am going to keep going. Dwight rocked the house
Sad it isn't raining or sold out! Yet you have a tent up so no one can see in the back! For the price of tickets come on guys!
Hi guys ~ I know this will fall on deaf ears, but I have to try. With the closing of The Muse, next month's show for The Struts was cancelled. It would be amazing if you guys could try to pick that show up, especially since they were planning on being here anyway. If you don't know them, they are an AMAZING band who are about to begin touring with Foo Fighters, including The Anthem Grand Opening: Foo Fighters w/ The Struts {SOLD OUT}. You'd draw a good crowd and make a lot of disappointed people, including me, VERY happy. Please consider it. Thank you for your time and for bringing such great artists to Wilmington! ~ Allison
Any band playing tonight
Are bands still playing on Thursday nights?
When you pay that much for a seat you expect more than a hard plastic seat and something a little better than a porta- John for bathrooms as for seeing anything unless you are over six feet tall forget it will not be going back to the shell for any concerts
Really enjoyed Willie Nelson concert but the management here needs some help in their planning. Crazy getting in the door then bought a beer at first tent but told we couldn't walk to the next section which was selling beer not 20 yards away. Then there was a bar in the middle of the VIP seated section which meant we paid $150 to watch people buy beer and the security people there didn't care. We asked them about getting them to line up down the side aisle but they were more concerned with selling beer than they were people seeing the stage. After a bunch of complaints and Willie came on they finally closed those bars. They need to rethink their planning with events like this!!!
so...how come when you pay $150 for a seated ticket this is your view all night?
View at the concerts is horrible. They need a little more experience before holding large shows. My view of the Willie show
There was no one to answer phone. I had questions as to if you could bring chairs for general admission. Called for 2 weeks no answer. When we got in they said folding chairs OK, but would not let us out to get them. Not impressed.
Show started half a hour late. Not a good place if you have bad knees unless you can afford seated tickets or bring a chair.
This is a $70 ticket?! Thanks for inviting me to your last show ever.
Can we bring chairs to general standing area?
