If you’re in need of a chair, consider:

Chair rentals are available for standard-sized white plastic chairs. Rentals are $10 each and available in a first come, first serve basis.

To rent a chair, pay at the Box Office before lining up for the show and pick up chairs at the Box Office or inside the gates near the merchandise booth.

Rental chairs are to be placed in designated seating areas in the Amphitheater. Please be aware these areas are also first-come, first-served seating.

The Sponsored Seating section is a special area at the top of the Amphitheater—the Steve and Amy Van Andel East and West Terraces for Season ticket holders. At the current time, all seats are filled. If you would like to be placed on the waiting list (which numbers more than 120 individuals), please contact our Philanthropy Department at 616-975-3177 or abenson@meijergardens.org for more information.

Rain or shine! Bring your ponchos and/or smaller umbrellas if there’s a high probability of rain. Please be courteous to your neighbors by not blocking their views with large or golf umbrellas.

Our weather policy states if there is inclement weather in our area, the concert will be delayed until the threat has passed. The decision to continue a concert after adverse weather passes will be determined on a case-by-case basis, based on consultation with appropriate weather experts. If a storm or tornado situation arises and the concert needs to end, there will be no refunds. 

Each artist has their own photography policy, which pertains to guests and media alike. Meijer Gardens helps enforce these policies by prohibiting all SLR / detachable lens cameras, iPads and video-recording / live streaming devices. Typically, still photography is allowed with non-professional cameras. Please be considerate of guests around you when taking photos.

​It is our intent to make the concert experience accessible to every guest. Meijer Gardens is an accessible facility and proudly complies with ADA regulations. Guests with medical or mobility issues may request special consideration for seating by visiting the Box Office window.

If seating in low chairs will be a mobility issue, we have a limited quantity of standard-height white plastic chairs, available for rent ($10). To rent a chair, make your payment at the Box Office, pick up your chair nearby and take it to one of the designated seating areas.

Barrier-free areas are marked in blue at the left and right top sections of the Amphitheater hill. View a map of the barrier-free seating locations HERE. Guests wishing to sit in one of these areas may be accompanied by one companion (or more if room is available). Guests in wheelchairs have priority—a limited number of wheelchairs are available for use during the concert at no charge.

Guests may line up outside the gates as early as they please. For more popular shows, many guests arrive several hours before gates open. Placing of an empty chair or “place holder” is not allowed—guests must be physically present to reserve their spots in line. The box office opens at 4 pm.

Refer to your ticket for information about when gates open—times vary— or on the concert schedule page.
