The new view from the lawn

Riverbend Music Center just made it easier than ever to see live music from the lawn seats. In advance of May 16's Rascal Flatts season opener, the venue has removed the support beam towers that have been part of the pavilion structure since its original construction in 1984. 

"Over the years we have received feedback from patrons that they loved being on the lawn for concerts, but wished the sightlines were better. So we listened and now every spot on the lawn has an unobstructed view of the stage," says Rosemarie Moehring, MEMI's director of marketing.
