They did host bigger concerts there for a number of years, I saw Springsteen and Rolling Stones there at two different shows circa 2005 or so. No idea why they stopped because now I don’t think it gets used much outside of a rare event during football offseason, seems like it would be a boon to local economy to get people in for concerts.

neighbors complained about noise levels. The Police played there in 2007 i think that was the last show.

it’s a good stadium really not a bad seat in the house ample parking pretty easy in and out just needs some upkeep which i believe is in process of securing funding.

Makes sense I guess that people around complained but it’s kind of one of those things where “what did you think was gonna happen buying a house next to a stadium?!” I have more understanding if they were there before the venue was built I guess.

At least to me it doesn’t seem like there any houses immediately next door and it’s way off from the street so who knows.

It’s also one of those situations where ,if you were a neighbor, you should see some benefit to your town with the influx of money from the venue plus the really close people could get $$ from yard parking and the stadium isn’t covered so it’s only during warm months there would even be a concert there

I went to that show. It was the only show I went to there, and I was on the floor, but I thought the sound was excellent.
