Question about Cincy tickets.....

Post by Pirate Lookin' at 40 »

I am going to go to Cincy this year and it will be my 5 year old daughter's first Buffett show (she knows more Buffett than several people that I know who call themselves parrotheads). Because of this, I want to sit in the seating area instead of the lawn - plus the lawn sucks at Riverbend. How much do the reserved seats usually cost here and also what is usually the maximum number of reserved seat tickets that one person can buy?

Any info is appreciated - thanx.

figure $150/seat, and 6-8 is usually the max for a venue

Tickets are 126.00 + TM fees (parking free), but the tailgating is better across the street in the not so free lots. Max seats is 6. And I thought it was just me who thought the lawn at Riverbend was bad. I assumed it was bad everywhere though. In fact, Riverbend in general is not very good. TIMBERWOLF rocked!!!!!!!!

Is it really that bad at Cincy on the lawn? My buddy and I were planning on roadtrippin out that way this summer, hit up Kings Island (first show I saw was at Columbia, MD and we did Kings Dominion, so it's kinda reuinion sort of thing) and catching the show obviously. So, from people who have been there, how bad is bad?

If you tried to design a stage so that the people in the lawn could not see....you could not do better than this. It sucks. I can't really afford $126 per ticket...so I probably won't go after all. I refuse to do the lawn at Riverbend. The tailgating there does rock though.

stay towards the center of the lawn and you will have no problem.
the sight lines are not great from the sides

I agree get in early!!!! the middle of the lawn fills up QUICK!!! If you don't get in the middle you might as well be in one of boats hanging out on the river behind the stage.

Riverbend Lawn

Post by bucknutdet »

No the lawn at Riverbend is great. The only drawbacks are you can't hear anything or see the show, other than that, fine. That and all the drunk college frat boys, p*** and puking all over the place.

Worst complaint about the lawn, SOUND is AWFUL!
