It was our first time at the Raleigh Amphitheater and overall the venue was nice. The weather was perfect for a laid-back outdoor experience and we arrived in time to find our seats and partake in some concert food. The Pit barbeque sandwich was yummy, but avoid their chewy, reheated fried chicken sandwich. Not surprisingly, the food prices are expensive (i.e., $8 for a sandwich and $4 for a soft drink). Our seats were purposely away from the stage where it wouldn't be too loud or too crazy - and they were conveniently near the bathrooms too. We were in a little 6-seat "box" which worked out perfectly because our seats were movable and we didn't have to hurdle people to get in/out. During the main set, be prepared to stand in this venue in order to see the stage over all the other folks standing. Interestingly enough, it actually looked like the cheaper lawn seats had a pretty decent view. We had given the kids fair warning on the drive there that they may hear some words they should ignore and they may see some adults making poor decisions, but luckily, the crowds were fairly well-behaved so no need for any further explanation.
If the “Last Summer on Earth” tour is coming to a city near you, we highly recommend you check it out! It was truly a fun night and we loved watching it all through our kids' eyes too!
