    First Midwest Bank Ampitheatre???

    You can all take my mancard right now but I need some advice. My daughter is really into One Direction so I was thinking of getting her tickets to a concert for Christmas. The only concert in the midwest that is not sold out and falls on a week I have her is at First Midwest Bank Ampitheatre in Tinley Park, IL and all they have left are GA grass seats. From what I read if you get there early enough you can get a decent seat on the grass. Before I drop the money I wanted to see if any fellow Cyclones have ever attended a concert here and what they thought of it?

    i did Jason Aldean/Tim McGraw there and had the GA - it's awesome. The venue is huge and they've got plenty of live-feed screens to boot.

    If you can get the tix for cheap, go for it

    It is a great place to see a concert. I will voluntarily sacrifice my man card and tell you I took my wife to see Jewel there a few years ago.

    And in other man card violation news, my kids are getting Maroon 5 tickets for Christmas.

    I saw blink-182, Green Day, and some other band I can't remember years ago but it's a very nice venue. Did not sit back on the grass but if it's not wet outside I imagine it would be fine

    I was there earlier this year for a Linkin Park and Incubus concert and the place is huge. I didnt sit in the grass, but those seats are quite a distance from the stage. I'm not sure how good those seats are, but you will have a good view of the stage, just not close to it.

    And fyi, beers are $12 there. They are 24oz cans, but still.

    Taking your daughter to something she is really into never harms your man card status.

    Doing things for your children that you wouldn't do on your own gets points added to man cards!

    It is a good venue and has a big grass section. The grass is always the rowdiest spot so you will all get an eyeful or two.

    I read that about the grass but am in hopes that since it's One Direction which has more of a elementary to middle school aged fans that this will be more tame than the rock concerts that attract older fans who drink.

    Thanks to you all for your advice! I just purchased tickets for her and 3 of her cousins this morning.
