Lost a cell phone within the building. No one was willing to look for it. I was told to call in the morning to see if "lost & found" could locate it. What a joke. I knew it was in the venue, but they wouldn't...More

Allow plenty of time because they only have two metal detectors. If you are planning on bringing a purse make sure it is no bigger than a number 10 envelope. There are no storage lockers which does not give you many options other than not...More

I am a concert lover! Up until 10/26/18 Stage AE was my favorite venue in Pittsburgh. Tonight they dropped the ball! Over an hour in line in the freezing rain. I wish we could get a refund! Two damn metal detectors tonight and just as...More

Some friends and I recently went to AE to see a George Clinton concert. Make sure if you have a purse that it’s no bigger than a greeting card or they will suggest you throw it away. Very limited seating there, be sure to wear...More

Have seen many concerts here, indoor and out. On a nice night, best place outside in Pittsburgh. Great beer prices. Really nice bathrooms. If inside pay for a balcony seat so you don’t have to stand all night. Easy parking, and in and out.

We saw the Avett Brothers here, wonderful small venue. Stood (and rarely sat on grassy hill) near back center, but saw everything quite well. Could have gotten closer, but nice to be further back yet hear fine. Good, not overwhelming acoustics for an outdoor concert....More

This venue would be wonderful for smaller crowds, but with a large crowd, it was not enjoyable. We waited in line for a long time while missing several of the opening songs. Our friend had to throw away her very small purse and stuff personal...More

We went to see the Avett Brothers. The venue was oversold. You couldn't hear the band. The concert started and there was still a line around the venue. We got in about 20 minutes after the concert started and left about a half hour later.

The concert itself was great!!! Boy George sounded and looked amazing. And I know I should have checked the bag policy beforehand, however, the same small cross body purse I have taken there several times before no longer was acceptable. Ok, fine. However, when you...More

I didn’t see any. The weather was fairly warm and you’re only allowed to bring in a very small purse, so I wouldn’t see a need to offer them.

Hello Shawna! If you are going to an "inside show" (which you probably are at this time of year) I believe they have real seats on the upstairs balcony. I would call the venue to be accommodated. It's a great space inside... More

I had the same problem. They never cancelled the concert or moved it, most people wore ponchos and just stood outside in the rain.
