  • Came here to see Anderson East. The venue is very nice with a lot of variety between seating areas. The sound & acoustics were great for an outdoor venue. The only potential drawback for some may be.....  more »

  • We were visiting Nashville for a few days and decided to take in a concert at Ascend. We got tickets to see an artist we both really loved and were happy to find out he was going to be in Nashville while we were there. The amphitheater is in an awesome setting. Close enough to downtown to walk from our hotel, but far enough out that it didn't seem cramped. We waited in line for about 15 minutes to go through security. We were able to rent some chairs, grab a few drinks and be seated fairly quickly. We saw Jason Mraz and what a great concert. The sound was great, the crowd was enjoying things and nobody was being unruly. We were able to dance if we wanted without anyone complaining behind us, since they were dancing too!! I liked the setting with the lights of the buildings around us. It's a cool venue. If we find ourselves back in Nashville, I hope to take in another concert.
  • Amazing outdoor theater great for big concerts. I had a great time at the Charlie Puth concert. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is pricey but good. I got a large soda and a burger with fries. It's a great place for a concert as long as the weather is nice.
