My family and I went to see the first show at the Carolina Crossroads location. Big and Rich and Jason Aldean played to a crowd of about 20,000+.
It is important to note that Carolina Crossroads is in the process of being built to resemble venues like Alltel Pavillion at Walnut Creek in Raleigh, NC. The location where the concerts are currently being held is a temporary set-up near the build-site of the future Carolina Crossroads pavillion.
I've been to plenty of concerts in plenty of places and, I have to admit, even though the concert was "in the middle of a field", Carolina Crossroads could not have done a better job for their first concert. I have run into more headaches with long lines for concessions, drinks, bathrooms etc. at more established venues. The security was top-notch and, even though we'd found a sitter for the kids, I appreciated the "family only--no alcohol" area that was available.
I was very impressed with the job Carolina Crossroads did with the Big and Rich concert and I've heard that the following concerts were just as well done. I am amazed at the big name performers they are able to schedule and I only imagine that more big names are on the way once the place is fully up and running.
I'd go to another concert at Carolina Crossroads in a heartbeat!
