You may have heard on the news this week that there are some seating rule changes for two of the concerts at the Les Schwab Amphitheater this year, Jack Johnson and Dave Matthews Band. Here’s what you need to know for this year (from their website):
Some of our GA concerts we expect to sell out at maximum capacity. In the case of a maximum capacity sell out, no chairs, blankets or strollers will be allowed inside the venue for space and safety reasons. For our 2014 concert season, chairs, blankets and strollers will not be allowed at the Jack Johnson and Dave Matthews concerts. You may sit on the grass, dance your heart away, or if a person in your party requires seating, we have an accessible seating area at all concerts.
All the other shows this year will allow strollers, chairs, and blankets. But those other two concerts sold out to maximum capacity, thus triggering the seating rule change for them.
In addition, I believe it’s at least at the Jack Johnson concert (though it may be both) that one-time-use, plastic water bottles will not be allowed (as a condition of the performer). You can bring reusable items like canteens or hydroflasks and they’ll have extra hydration stations (water fountains/tanks) out for refills.
