I attended the Miranda Lambert concert at the PNC Music Pavilion, taking a spot on the grassy knoll at the back, which was much more affordable. They had lawn chairs to rent for $5 for a more comfortable experience. Despite my distance from the stage, the sound was loud and clear, but not overwhelming. The big closed-circuit TV's allowed me... More

I expected the worse because I am used to the great seats I get at Van Andel Arena. I was very impressed. We had lawn seats for Jason Aldean and still had a great view. it rained a lot as well but we still enjoyed it. I would love to go back to see Jimmy Buffet there some day.

I love large outdoor venues but this one is definitely lacking lately. This is the 2nd show I have been to at this venue in the past few months (I also attended one in August) and the sound is just terrible. Everything always sounds muffled or washed out. I don't know....I'm not a tech so I don't know exactly what... More

The lines moved fast getting the crowd in. The bathrooms were clean but the lines were so long. The roof leaked so we got a little wet . The staff was very helpful and friendly

I went to the PNC Music Pavilion for the Cheap Trick, Heart, and Joan Jett concert on September 16. I had read many bad recent reviews on another site and since it had been awhile since I was there for a concert, I was a little concerned. Apparently the bad reviews caused some positive changes at the venue as I... More

I had my first visit to the PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte, NC. It is doubtful I'll attend this venue again. Overall it is a nice place to see a concert and the staff I interacted with were all very polite and helpful. Unfortunately, there were several other attendees sitting near me who insisted on smoking even though there were... More

This is an outdoor arena so if you don't have a seat you are exposed to the elements rain or shine. I suggest paying a little more and getting a seat. I have been at both even with a chair people are running all over you on the lawn.

Saw the Heart concert here! First time visit! Worth the extra dollars to park closer to the entrance. ALL drinks are REALLY pricey! And the "chair" height rule does not apply! I brought my beach chair only to have people with the regular folding chairs plop down in front of me! Had to stand to see the stage because of... More

Went there for the first time to see a concert. Getting. Settled if your not familiar with the venue was a challenge. No signage and very limited directional help. We were in the pavilion and the seats were OK with plenty of legroom in the rows. The sound was horrendous, not sure if it was the group or the Hall... More
