what a surprise to come to Lockports and labatts "FREE" concert series only to find the front half of the stage completely fenced off for VIP's!! translation--paying customers. totally kills the Idea of a free concert series as well as locking out the true music lovers, there to see the bands,(unlesss you shelled out 27 bucks)

Tea Party was my band to see. In order to get close they wanted 27$!!! this is the promoters solution to having lost several sponsors??!! nothing like maybe FINDING more sponsors, having a community meeting etc... wouldnt that be doing your job? Instead you fence off the entire front of the stage and keep calling it a "free" show? no way! exploiting everyone who cant shell out money for your VIP lock out.

there are other options such as halving the fence, or fencing the very front NOT the entire area to see the band!. everyone should have an equal opportunity to see the band closer than 20 ft away.

the VIP people mostly wanted to drink anyway. I didnt see a lot of hardcore fans in the crowd. all of this is plain BS, and I will not go to this again. keep your VIP fencing. many people felt the same way. sorry promoters this was a fail.

sorry to hear this so you couldn't see or hear the FREE concert maybe you should thank Labatts and Lockport for giving you people and i use the word people loosely because the people who attend these free events are the reason we don't go

ummmm, that doesnt even make sense? I was at that show and I agree. if you are going to charge stop billing it as a free show. Lockport Isn't the only place that has free summer concerts, so i dont understand why you are acting as though everyone who goes should feel privileged. seems to me you were only privileged if you could fork over some money at this series.
