KristiG from Denver, Colorado
R&G CONCERT REVIEW
They put on a good show, but the venue was so unorganized and poorly planned, that people that got there at 4:30 for Will Call ended up standing in the heat in a big field parking lot for 2 hours. They didn't open the gates the start letting people in until 530, but there were thousands of people to get in, so it was closer to 630 before everyone got through the gate. Little kids were standing out in that heat - it was ridiculous. They had just a couple of food trucks for thousands of people, and two bars to get drinks. The people directing the parking were pushing people in line aside to park cars where they were standing. Lots of very upset people. There was no way to tell exactly where you parked because they kept putting more cars in all around you so it was a complete cluster for those trying to find their cars in the dark - no lights in the field... just a lot of people setting of the alarms in the cars so they could try to find them in the dark. R&G didn't actually get started until maybe 745, so people were ready to go home by 9, while they were still playing- Sunday night, people have to work in the morning, and many families had kids that were expecting to be done much earlier. We will never go to another concert at Botanic Gardens at Chatfield. We spent $60 a ticket to stand in 95 degree heat for an hour and a half, wait for R&G to start way after we expected them to, and another 45 minutes walking around in the dark trying to find the car. Very disappointed. Would have asked for a refund, but it probably would have meant standing in another line for an hour. Sad, we decided to do this rather than Rockygrass this year - bad choice.
