Michigan Lottery AmphitheatrePerformance & Event Venue in Sterling Heights, Michigan
Who's ready for May 29?
Once I finally got in line, I was about 50th. About 45mins before doors were scheduled to open, the workers made 3 separate lines side by side. Then for whatever reason, just before doors were supposed to open they made us get into 2 lines in front of the security scanners. When doing so, they took everyone who arrived late and lined them up in front of people who were waiting for hours. They continued to grab people from the back of the line and line them up at the front next to the scanners. Doors were supposed to open at 2pm, but for no reason at all, they kept us outside until 2:45pm. The first band went on stage at 2:30 and we could do nothing but listen from outside the venue.
Get your s#it together. I will not be coming back to your venue. I will travel else where to see bands coming to MLA.
I don’t know if the staff here lacks training or they just don’t care anymore, but I had to talk to THREE different people before someone could point me in the direction of a first aid station and once the “medics”(w
Since this venue has access to the number of tickets purchased for an event you would think that this informatio
Also, the dirt parking lot that lacks lighting and markers making it hard to locate where you’ve parked, but makes up for that with the insane amount of potholes and ridiculous
I was far back in lines in the parking lot that weren’t even organized,
And to top it off, the staff had no clue what was going on and they were lying to us saying that is was “cds playing and no one was playing yet” ... this group of people all know what live music sounds like. 2 of my friends were actually able to see the first band because they were literally 3rd in line, and the first band Plot in You, had a really small audience because because barely anyone was in to see them.
I really hope that this venue does not have self help ever again because it was a very unorganize
The parking here was also terrible for getting out because we were stuck in our spot for over 20 minutes. I had heard from a security person that the gates were closed for letting anyone out.
0/10 would never come back again.
If you're going to make hundreds of people wait in line for hours then I would recommend that you put some rest rooms outside for everyone to use. While waiting in line I ended up have to use the bathroom (as I'm sure tons of people did). It got to the point where I really had to go and NEEDED to find a bathroom. So we walked and asked one of the employees directing traffic if there were any bathrooms outside we could use. He laughed and said "over the hill". I'm already pretty upset by this point and the employee making jokes made it so much worse. So I end up having a panic attack because my stomach is killing me, the cramps were really bad and I didn't think I was going to make to a bathroom and basically shit myself in front if hundreds of people. We ended up leaving the venue to find a bathroom. (I understand
Once we finally got in, we had already missed half the band's set to play and I'm sure that pissed a ton of people off. The bands we did see put on an excellent show and I'm glad I was able to see them. Pierce The Veil was excellent and A Day To Remember put on one of the best shows I've seen in a while. I just wish that Freedom Hill could get their shit together. I've never had such a terrible time getting to and into a venue.
It's a great time! Got to miss my favorite band, thanks freedom hill!
All of the people around me paid to come here today to see their favorit...e bands and have been standing over an hour in the parking lot, all while the bands are actually on stage.
Will avoid this venue at all costs.
The show was fun, but that was no help to the venue..it was because the BANDS killed it.
When we arrived the bands were already playing inside while over 3/
We would assume it was just poor planning on ADTRs part, however, every other location of this festival has stellar reviews, some even claiming it to be better than the long running Vans Warped Tour.
We chose this location as opposed to the closer Philly location we could have attended because we preferred the line up for Detroit more. Unfortunat
It's extremely upsetting that we drove 7 hours to see half a show, at full ticket price.
The sound board was spotty at best and bands that we've heard live in the past and know are amazing performers
ADTR mentioned during their set this was the first year they brought this festival to Detroit. Considerin
What's even better is that people have already contacted the amphitheat
The opening band had two songs left when the first person was let in meaning they played the majority of their set to an EMPTY venue when there were THOUSANDS of people waiting to get in to see them. That's not only disrespect
I am 100% convinced these bands were forced by the venue to start when they did instead of waiting for more people to enter.
-Pretty nice amphitheat
-Traffic outside the amphitheat
-Most of the parking lot is unpaved dirt/mud. Several cars were stuck in the mud after the show and needed tow trucks to get out. (It hadn't even rained for several days).
-Parking lot staff was unhelpful.
-If you want to sit on the lawn, I can pretty much guarantee you that someone will be standing in front of you and you won't be able to see.
-Try to avoid seeing a show at this theater.
-If you must see a show here, consider parking a half-mile away and then walking to the theater -- you might actually get to the show on time this way.
-If you must park at the theater itself, get to the theater at least two hours early -- and be careful where you drive (or you will end up needing a tow truck, too).
-You might also want to do some research online to see if you can find an alternate route or an alternate entrance that has less traffic.
-Bite the bullet and pay extra money to sit in the pavilion if you actually want to see the show. (On the lawn, people will be standing in front of you... either because they are drunk or selfish, or a combinatio
-If you plan on standing/
-If you sit on the lawn, bring a small flashlight
-Work with the city of Sterling Heights to improve traffic flow and entrance to the theater.
-Run a road grader through your parking lot so it's not so bumpy. Maybe this will even prevent people from getting stuck in the mud.
-Try to enforce your No Smoking policy. (Some people do have asthma, ya know?)
-Have separate "standing"
-Make sure handicappe
