Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre St. Louis

Capacity • 20,000 — mix of seats and lawn

Acts • Everyone on the summer concert calendar pretty much plays here, from Jason Aldean to Rod Stewart and Rob Zombie. Tickets go cheap on the lawn, $100 or more for the choice seats.

Parking • Plenty of spaces, but getting in and out is tedious and time-consuming.

Bar • Full bar for some VIP areas; otherwise, beer and limited mixed drinks.

Food • Sandwiches, fries and snacks available throughout venue. Food cannot be brought in.

Restrooms • Ample, but brace for occasional long lines.

Other • This is where a lot of the big acts — but not big enough to fill a stadium — play on their warm-weather tours. Excellent people-watching. Prepare to have any bags and blankets searched. And you’ll get frisked.
