Great performance, not so great venue.
Free tickets to see Toby Keith on Labor Day! We left early as we'd never been to this venue and found it with no difficulty. Arrived with loads of time to spare as most of the traffic was southbound. We free-parked near the waterfront to have supper before the event, then paid $20 to park closer. It had rained hard all day (3-4") and was threatening to rain again. We found our seats, section 2 row 15 seats 22 & 23. Good view of the entire stage. Our friends (the ticket-givers) arrived just as the opening act started and both groups were VERY good. Finally Toby came on around 8:30 or so. That was the end of my good view - everyone stood up and stayed standing for the entire performance and HE NEVER STOPPED! Almost 2 hours! I didn't see much as most everyone was taller and wider and I couldn't get a glimpse in between bodies. Lots of folks smoking next to us instead of using the designated area. I thoroughly enjoyed the music - the sound quality was perfect, I did not enjoy this venue. I'm sure I will not return unless they actually enforce their own rules.
