Can you imagine being with 25,000 plus guests screaming in response to Taylor's performance ? There is outdoor (lawn) seating for thousands with the remaing guests seated under a roof. The acoustics are fantastic. SPAC has a great remaing schedule this Summer.....go !!!'. You will not be disappointed.

We LOVE the Philadelphia Orchestra--the quality of this symphony is amazing with Maestro Tovey (and Yo Yo Ma)! Unfortunately, the Key Bank Patron tent is now near the stage right and it's really distracting--they talk during the performance (and that makes so sense!) and then towards the end, the workers start breaking down the patron tent. Both detract from the symphony. So, it is surely worth going, but do not sit stage right on the hill--or expect loud noises that really adversely affect the enjoyment. (We are fans of SPAC, typically attending the ballet and symphony, so it is with a heavy heart that I write this review.)

Going to hear YoYoMa tonight and really looking forward to it. Any show there is a really nice way to spend the evening

Attended a concert at SPAC, and was very impressed with the experience. The premier parking was an added ease on walking. Easy entrance into the parking area, no troubles finding a place to park. Standing it line wasn't too long, until the doors opened. Very heavy police presence, but that added to my safety. Upon entering the gates, all was very smooth and the staff were very helpful in finding our seats. We had balcony seats and we could really see very well. I do agree with a previous poster who said that you feel "disconnected" when you aren't down in the thick of things, however, I enjoyed being able to see everything without having to stand up. It was a great evening. Bathrooms were very clean and the lines weren't long for this concert. Only purchased water and one pretzel the whole night, because I knew the provisions would be expensive. All in all a wonderful night !!!

Disappointed they refused my camera in the doors. I take pictures at EVERY concert I go to and have never had a problem. It's not a professional camera so it shouldn't have been an issue.
