    A more intimate and classy BB&T. Food trucks are great and bathrooms are clean! Buy lawn seats unless you NEED to be in front. Great view from anywhere.

    Great amphitheatre with nice views of Philly. The small Skyline stage is a good setup for more intimate performances on the grass.

    If the Farm Truck is there (at the top of the hill next to the craft beer), you need to check out the Jerk Chicken Sandwich. So perfect.

    Did you know you can get here on SEPTA? Stopping at major locations in Center City, the Mann Center Loop provides an easy one seat trip to the show. Read more

    Amazing venue! Meet your ride home away from the venue, on a side street. They close the roads up to the gates fairly quickly.

    Balcony seating for the Carnival of Madness wasn't the best. We would have been happier with first floor seating. Live and learn. Awesome music venue!

    Nice outdoor venue, but expensive parking ($15!), no non-smoking section since it's outside, and at an all ages show with several bars & little security where's the regulation of underage drinking?

    Park for free at the shopping center on 52nd st. (McDonald's, planet fitness, shop rite). instead of paying $15 to park at the Mann. Also hell of a lot easier to get out.

    Food is pricey, but that's to be expected. The Center was clean and the staff was friendly and polite.

    Great music venue. Come with very low standards for beer though. It seems they don't know there are other beers besides PBR, Bud, and Miller Lite. On the upside it saved me a lot of calories & money.

    Bonus: if a show isn't sold out talk to an usher and they may be able to upgrade you to orchestra seats for free!

    Large outdoor venue on the outskirts of town. Food and beer available, but nothing special. Bring chairs or a blanket for the lawn!

    Why did bands ever stop playing this place? Greatest place to see a show in the Philly area. Glad to see it making a comeback.

    The Mann is the greatest outdoor venue in the Philly area. Classic venue. Not as sterile as the joint in Camden. Whole lotta love here.

    Holy sh!t I think it will take just as much time to leave as the concert itself. Also. Verizon 3G doesn't seem to be holding up well. Friend's 4G seemed to be better.

    Lots of people are willing to pay the outrageous parking, so get there early if you're paying to park so you can get close to the gate.

    Wolfgang Puck delivers seasonal inspired selections at Crescendo, so frequent this spot often and on an empty stomach.

    Use the local bus. It was easy to get in and out of the concert and with just $4 round trip it's a great deal!

    Make sure you bring a jacket if it is going to be cold. The walls of the theater are open sometimes

    Formerly known as the Mann Music Center, now the Mann Center for Performing Arts; summer home of the Philadelphia Orchestra; nice out-door concert venue including inexpensive lawn seats.

    Pay for the cheap seats, the ushers don't check tickets when you sit. As long as you aren't in anyone's seats, no one gives a shit.

    I can't believe they have the audacity to charge $15 for parking. This is not center city, the stadium, or the airport.
