Verizon Wireless Amphitheater St. Louis
Maryland Heights, MO 63043
Riverfront Times' Description
No St. Louisan's summer is complete without taking in a show at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, the storied Maryland Heights venue formerly known as Riverport. It's where your parents sweated through the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin and where you've witnessed everything from Radiohead to Sugarland. The largest outdoor venue in the metro area, it's also one of the few egalitarian concert experiences left - from the 45-minute caravan through the Riverport business park to the endless series of parking lots, to making friends waiting for the Johnny on the Spot and sharing beer with the happy stoners a picnic blanket over. Concerts have become too sterile, but this venue still requires a commitment, and it's one we're happy to make in the sweltering St. Louis summer.
Tips from foursquare
Lines for concessions and restrooms are usually shorter in the North plaza just left of the stage rather than the South Plaza. – Team Live Nation
Tired of waiting? Verizon Wireless Customers can show their phone and jump the line for early entrance into the venue with 3 friends. – Team Live Nation
13 dollar beers means find a way to sneak in your own booze
Arrive early to sold out shows to avoid sitting on the highway for half of the concert.
