Venue Information:
Blossom Music Center is an amphitheatre, located in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. The pavilion seats 5,700 people, with space for about 13,500 more on the lawn. It is the summer home of the Cleveland Orchestra, which performs its annual Blossom Festival there. The venue is also host to a full summer schedule of popular music acts and symphonic performances. It is owned by the Musical Arts Association, the orchestra's non-profit parent organization.

Blossom Music Center is named after the family of Dudley S. Blossom, who served as president of the Cleveland Orchestra from 1936 to 1938. The site's natural parabolic setting, the pavilion's sloping slate roof, and the area's natural wooded surroundings distinguish it from other contemporary amphitheatres. The facility, designed by architect Peter van Dijk, is located on 800 acres (320 ha) of natural woods inside the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, about 10 miles (16 km) north of downtown Akron and 33 miles (53 km) south of downtown Cleveland. There are currently plans to sell 580 acres (230 ha) of Blossom's undeveloped acreage to the National Park Service to add to the park. As of March 2011, 233 acres (94 ha) have been purchased by the National Park Service for US $4 million, with hopes for NPS to purchase the remaining unused land in 2012.[4] This would financially benefit the owners and serve to protect the natural setting of Blossom. In 2003, the venue underwent a $17 million renovation.

Will be my first time hitting Blossom. Will be driving out early Friday morning from Scranton. Booked the Hampton Inn in Stow, OH and will be driving to Burgettstown for the show on Saturday. :upyours

Any tips from the locals?

Be prepared to sit in the lot for a loooong time after the show. That's really my only complaint. Beautiful venue and the sound in the pavilion is amazing.

Sweet, I figure that the traffic won't really be an issue since I'm staying 4 miles down the road, so I don't mind sitting for a while.

VIP parking is a must. Parked in Lot A was out in 15 mins. Just a bunch of DUI checkpoints leaving the venue. Haven't been out since 2010. Beautiful venue.

Are you seriously planning on doing that or just saying that to get the song played? :lol

Why broken things? Coming from a girl bowa, back you up, crush would be good choices.
