First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre Reviews & Ratings
Has been revamped. new seats, new paint job makes it much nicer inside seating bowl. Beverage service really expensive. good sound starts halfway up section 103. too close makes sound go over your head and will be blurry. Row X was perfect view and sound. row F wasn't good sound. Never sat in lawn so can't give opinion. Been here many times. Tinley Park Police have this place secured and have great presence. Feel very safe. Staff inside was great. Just eat before you arrive and drink in parking lot, this will save you a ton.
This is a great place to see a concert, and I have been here many times to see artists. They offer food and drinks here if you want it. They also have large bathrooms. The seating is good, but I also like the lawn. The parking is always easy to use thanks to all of the workers. I have always had a good time here.
We have been to several concerts at this venue and they bring in great bands. Our seats have ranged from lawn seats, regular seats, and suite seats. If you are getting lawn seats, it's best to get there early. We have also purchased the VIP and stage left lounge passes. The VIP lounge is great if it is raining, especially if you are there early enough to get space that you can see the stage. Stage left lounge is worth it just to have easier access to the bathrooms. On one occasion we were invited to check out the set list lounge when it was first reopened. It was really cool inside, especially on a hot day since it is air conditioned. Unfortunately there are no bathrooms in there, but you can use the stage left lounge bathrooms. It is also cool to see what songs the bands plan on playing before the show. The set list lounge also gives you access to the deck stage left. So if you have lawn seats, this is a nice bonus. If you are getting regular seats, be careful in what seats you get. There are large pillars that can block your view. It can also take a long time to get into the bathrooms which is why it the upgrades can be nice.
Had a great time. Any seat in this place is the best seat. I loved being out doors for this concert . The only thing I didn't like was the price on the drinks 20 bucks for a 12oz. Glass. I'm Glade I didn't get any food. I'm Glade I ate before I went to this, and what is this thing only bottle of water per person. It's just so they can sell more drinks. At the high prices. But I had a good time at the concert. That's the only thing I was there for.
Incredible space. Sound was overpowering from the pit, but as it was an Iron Maiden concert so it was to be expected. Fantastic lighting and great visibility of the stage from almost everywhere. Good food and drink options, although ridiculously pricey (also as expected). Staff was helpful and courteous. Lines were fast at ticket counter even though it was a sold out show to 28,000.
