This pavilion has both indoor and outdoor venues. We attended a packed indoor event last night. This was very little air circulating and it was stifling hot! Everyone was complaining about the heat. It definately seems like a venue for the younger generation. At least...More

Columbus lacks good outdoor concert venues since Polaris Amphitheater closed. This is a good facility for youth oriented concerts for people who have no problem standing for three plus hours but for some of us older rockers with bad hips and knees it can be...More

Hi! I bought GA5 tickets and I would prefer to be very close to the stage can I do that or where would I be? Can I be in either the front or in the grass? Or is there some type of ticket you have to buy to be in the very front?

Are there any seats where you can sit or is it all standing room only playing on seeing up coming alice cooper concert

On the inside, there is only standing room, maybe some seating upstairs. Outside, you can reserve seating, stand up close to the stage, or sit in the back in the grass!
