Gexa Energy Pavilion
Formerly known as Smirnoff Music Center and Superpages.com Center, Gexa Energy Pavilion serves as a major concert and theatrical performance venue. With a massive capacity of over 7,000 and another added capacity of whooping 12,000 in the lawn area, it is not difficult to figure out the reason of popularity of this venue. Numerous festivals are held here throughout the year along with concerts. With good sound and easy access, this is a great place for the young or old to enjoy favorite music acts. Prices vary per event.
If you don't mind outrageous, and I mean really really outrageous, prices at the concession stand and your car being one of about a dozen or so that gets broken into (INSIDE the gates), then this is the place for you.
I completely undertand that you are going to pay more for a beer when yu go to a concert or a professional sports game, but $9.50 for a beer that isn't very cold is ridiculous. I also understand that cars get broken into everyday, and yu can't always blame the business where your car was parked... but c'mon, more than a dozen cars got broken into that night. Where's the security???
When the media tried to contact people at the Superpages.com Center, they didn't return any calls... IMAGINE THAT!!! They were too busy laughing at the people who got ripped off paying $9.50 a beer only to find out they got ripped off twice that night when they got to their cars to find windows smashed in.
The concerts there are controlled by brokers making most people pay 3x face value-they pack them in selling unlimited lawn seats. My wife and I paid $300 for 2 Nickleback tickets sitting maybe 30 rows back. When we got there everyone was allowed to just go anywhere and all the people with lawn seats had totally crammed the aisles so you not even get through to your seat or even move-it was dangerous and made it so if you bought a ticket it didn't really matter. Beer is $9.50. They cram em in and rip you off and laugh at the idiots that fall for this--doesn't matter how much you pay, you can't get away from the lawn trash that paid $15 to get in. I'll never go here again and advise everyone to not pay big bucks for good seats because you'll be rubbing elbows with the public no matter what. We left before the concert even started.
Iwent to see Dave this year. The venue really sucks compared to other venues I have been to. The Pavilion in St. Louis is much nicer as is the ampitheater in K.C. is much much better than Smirnoff. The weather was extremely hot but it is TX. The thing is theres a big cement wall around the venue and it keeps all the air from circulating in the place so you end up with 30,000 people sitting in a hot box. Other than that its not very slopped which sucks if you have a tall person in front of you. Other than that its a normal concert. I would go back only for bands I really like.
The atmosphere is great if you love going to concerts and seeing a great show. The lawn tickets are generally the best deal and tends to be the most fun place to sit. While the food and beverage prices are pricey, the overall experience is worth it. Go with friends and bring sunscreen! As locals we try to go as often as we can.
sitting on a blanket on the lawn with friends enjoying a concert together is great but after spending money for tickets the cost of just haveing a couple of cokes is outragous, plus the cups they give allow the drinks to get warm almost as soon as they are poured anyway I miss alot of concerts just because I can't afford to keep myself hydrated cause even the water fountains are warm
