i was at a concert at the pgp just a few days ago. this is the worst place to go. i had lawn seats and by the time all the fees were added on to my $25 ticket - i ended up paying almost $50. sneaky of them to add $6 to every single ticket to pay for parking. \r
when i was there, i was so disappointed at the way this place allows fans to behave. security - yeah right!!! that's a joke. in the lawn, it's a nothing more than a chaiotic free-for-all. the amount of drunk (lots underage), high, looking to start a fight minded individuals out there is insane. the fact that smoking is permitted is also wrong. sorry people, wait, no i'm not. the lawn was so thick with smoke from cigarettes, cigars, and illegal smokes that it was disgusting. add to that all the people walking around drunk and stumbling over other people. i also got to see lots of yelling and fighting. (didn't i pay to come see some great music here?) to make things worse, there was at least and hour break in between the two major performers. all there was to do was watch chaios! after almost an hour, my group left. we had had our limit of stupid. \r
why does the pgp allow and seeminly encourage this kind of behavior? there were a lot of families and kids there to see the bands perform. they were subject to this too. oh, and the ""family section"" of the lawn - ha!!! what a joke. it is off to the side in the back and is a tiny little grassy area with baby gates put up . that would be like taking a table in the middle of a smoking bar and saying this is the non-smoking/kid friendly section. drunk idiots are still all around, thick clouds of smoke are still all around. and to think - these people then get in their cars and drive around!!!!
Cons: everything - from parking to fan behavior
