I thought this place could use a more recent review than 2003. I've been going to Germain for concerts since 1999, and I haven't seen too many bad changes. Naturally, ticket prices are outrageous, but that's not really Germain's fault. A lot of concert tickets now are including the parking fee, so that saves you $7. I went there last week, and I did notice that you are now allowed to bring food and drinks into the amphitheater with you. You can't bring cans or alcohol, but you'll definitely save money by bringing your own water and snacks instead of buying them there at the horrific prices they charge. Seating isn't bad (I always get lawn tickets), and there are only some areas that have bad views of the stage.
Pros: can bring food/water in, occasional free parking, lots of bathrooms
Cons: high food/beer prices
