My sons and I recently had the opportunity to go to a Brad Paisley concert. It was held at the Verizon Wireless Music Center in Noblesville, Indiana, which is just outside of Indianapolis. We had never been to this venue before but it is now our favorite place to see a concert.
The Verizon Wireless Music Center is an outdoor arena. It is shaped in what I would call a fan shape. The seats start out in shorts rows that gradually fan out as you go back in the arena. It has 6000 seats in the covered pavillion and another approximately 18, 000 general admission seats on the lawn which are not covered. In the general admission area you either have to bring a lawn chair or sit on a blanket on the ground.
What I really liked about this arena was that there are not a bunch of stairs to climb. The pavillion seats are on a gradual incline and there are only 4 steps to get from one section to another. Another thing I enjoyed was that there is plenty of leg room. Most places I've seen concerts you have to sit with your legs back against the seats. At Verizon my sons and I were able to stretch our legs out completely.
The Verizon Wireless Music Center has the usual concession stands offering both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. They also have a wide selection of foods and snacks to choose from. They also have a booth to rent lawn chairs if you are in the general admission area.
Parking is free unless you want to park in the Premier parking which costs $25.00. We parked here because it is a lot closer to the arena than the other parking. From here it is a very short walk to the entrance. There is accessible seating available in all sections.
The night we were there it rained a little during the concert but that didn't seem to bother the people on the lawn. Most had rain ponchos or umbrellas.
The only thing I really didn't like is if it had any actual restrooms we could not find them. There were several port-a-potties set up inside and outside the gate.
If you have the opportunity to see a concert at The Verizon Music Center in Noblesville, Indiana give it a try. I think you will find it as enjoyable as we did.
