  • Great venue for semi-popular bands & oldies. The space is completely outdoor and is almost exclusively GA (standing room). People usually behave themselves and it is normally family-friendly space....  more »
  • Have been to Stage AE to see an outdoor concert for Alice Cooper and have seen Ted Nugent & Alice Cooper indoors. Get there early if you want close to the stage. I won tickets to all the concerts...  more »
  • I have seen 5+ shows here inside and outside. This is by far my most favorite concert venue. Tickets all cost the same (and are generally very affordable!) and there is an unobstructed view of the stage from anywhere you are in the place. You can get as close or as far away as you want. If you don't want to stand the entire time it's good to get a lawn view from the first of the night. The drink prices are as expected at any venue but not the most expensive I have ever seen. I have parked and never had an issue finding a place. I have done ride sharing which is convenient and easy to get after the concert being that it's a city. Overall it's a more affordable concert experience and you can ACTUALLY see the people on the stage without having to watch a big screen in a field. I would and do recommend to anyone.
  • Great venue. The sound system was awesome. Aside from the insanely crazy lines work drinks in the super eye prices for alcohol.. Which is what I've come to expect at any concert. Aside from all that it was a really really really great time... I've been to this place a thousand times and I've always had a great time.
