Formerly the Desert Sky Pavilion, The Cricket Wireless Pavilion is host to a number of national concert and event acts. There are 8,000 reserved seats under the covered area of the pavilion and room for at least 12,000 more on the lawn behind the pavilion. The acoustics are great from any seat in the house and large screens allow those sitting on the lawn to see the action on the stage. Guests brave rain and storms to enjoy concerts from the lawn and inclement weather sometimes results in an even more entertaining show. Nationally known acts that have performed at Cricket include John Mayer, Darius Rucker, Brad Paisley, Kiss, The Jonas Brothers, and Green Day. Parking is available on the two lots near the pavilion and the cost is typically included in the cost of the concert ticket. There is also VIP parking for an additional fee. Visitors can order their tickets online or buy phone from Live Nation and they will be mailed or left at the will call window at the pavilion. The gates open approximately two hours prior to a show. Nearby are a variety of dining and lodging options in the Phoenix area so concert goers can enjoy dinner and a performance, or stick around after the show overnight if they have enjoyed one too many adult beverages during the performance.
