We traveled 5 hours to see Def Leppard/Journey this past week. We attend many concerts throughout the year and decided to try Chastain Park because of the beautiful setting and good reviews. While I agree, this is a beautiful concert venue, the parking was terrible (almost to the point of being dangerous), the lines to get a water were hundreds deep and most importantly, we feel like we wasted our money because unless you get 20 feet from the stage, you cannot hear the band because of the noise ordinance. Maybe this is a good venue for the symphony and such, but we came home very unsatisfied and were lucky enough to get seats at another outdoor venue and saw this concert again two days later. What a difference, we could actually hear the guitar solos and the upper register of the lead singers and we couldn't hear the fellow concert goers talking around us. I do not recommend this venue for any kind of rock or pop concert.
Cons: noise restrictions, parking, concessions
