A pretty big venue. You have to pay to park your car.No seats at this show.Not much variety in food choices.

We went to see Jim Jefferies (comedian) so I was relieved to see there were seats as i heard that it is standing room only. We bought parking online, and were shocked to show up and see it was merely a gravel parking lot, and they were selling parking there for $7. Im not sure how most music performances are... More

I have been going here for ten years and it was always decent. The ticket prices were reasonable but any food or drinks were always grossly overpriced and terrible quality. I went this Friday for the Halestorm show, and I would just love to know why I had to pay $7 for parking, which was always FREE??? Not only did... More

I've traveled cross-country to see shows here a number of times.. Overall, this place is cramped, too hot, and the layout is a disaster when the concert is over. In other words...it's perfect. Just the kind of place you want to go and mosh/dance/skank/whatever until you are about to pass out. Tip: If you are going to arrive late to... More

We went to see a country concert at Starland and I was very impressed with several things: First, it was not jam packed. Sold out meant that there was still room to move around. Service was very pleasant and they kept up really well with lines for drinks. I thought it would be sweltering hot in there, but I was... More

I've been to the Starland a few times (both before and after Superstorm Sandy) and really dig the layout of this place to see shows. I'm a fan of heavy metal and I love getting as close as I can to the stage in the pit. The Starland has decent floor space up front which allows me to easily accomplish... More

Starland brings in no one but the best musicians of all genres. There's no assigned seating (it's all standing) so you have the chance to get up front. Wear comfy shoes!

First trip to the Starland. Will not be my last. Fantastic venue to see a rock show. Plenty of levels with great viewing angles, plenty of room for concertgoers. Bars were easily accessibble, food - pizza was suprizingly good. Staff was very friendly, lines for everything were short and the place was packed. Bands sounded fantastic and other than a... More

This was my first time at this venue and I was not impressed at all. It was completely packed with people who were basically incoherent. The amount of shoving and pushing was uncomfortable for my wife and myself. Security, whose present was well known, was extremely aggitated and annoyed when a potential harmful situation was brought to their attention. I... More
