Verizon Wireless Amphitheater

St. Louis

Verizon St. Louis Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, St. Louis MOis located in  Maryland Heights, Missouri just outside of  St. Louis. The venue was built for approximately $12 million and opened in June 1991, with a performance by Steve Winwood.

Shortly after opening, the amphitheater became the site of the infamous Riverport Riot, sparked by Axl Rose, during a Guns N’ Roses concert, during their Use Your Illusion Tour. This riot was the cause of the band’s ban from St. Louis, disallowing them to play in the area.

The amphitheater has played host to music festivals, including The Vans Warped Tour, The Mayhem Festival, Farm Aid, Projekt Revolution, Ozzfest and Lilith Fair.

On July 23, 2010, Kings of Leon abruptly ended their set, after only 3 songs, due to being pelted with feces by pigeons while onstage. The band gave fans their money back and later announced a makeup show for the pigeon-gate scandal. The new date was scheduled for September 2010 – Tickets were free for those who attended their last show and were $10.00 for other fans planning on attending.

Location: 14141 Riverport Drive Maryland Heights, MO 63043

Opened: 1991

Capacity: 7,000 Seats, 13,000 Lawn Capacity, 20,000 Total
