The Kenley Amphitheater has three different seating options for each Summer Nights with the Stars events. We are giving you a breakdown of each seating option, the benefits of each, and some inside information for you to choose the best seat for you!


The orchestra section is perfect for an up-close and personal experience! Containing three rows of reserved stackable chairs, every seat is well within 15 feet of the stage. If you want the best angle for those cell phone concert pics, or the chance to make direct eye contact with the artist, the orchestra section is for you!

While the orchestra section is the closest to the stage, there are some things to consider. First, these seats are the most expensive at The Kenley Amphitheater. They are premium seats, for goodness sake! Second, the orchestra section is not wheelchair accessible. There are three steps leading down to the orchestra section, so we cannot accommodate wheelchairs in this section.


Our most popular section! The reserved seating section consists of 9 rows of permanent seats. No need to line up early if you bought a ticket in the reserved section, so go ahead and grab a bite to eat before the show. Just make sure you’re there for the announcements–we do giveaways! 

The reserved section is a little less expensive than our orchestra section, but you are a bit farther from the stage. While the middle of the section is the most popular, and it’s no surprise those seats sell fast, the sides of the reserved section are also great seats! The outside edge of The Kenley Amphitheater stage is curved, and the seats curve with it, so every seat has an excellent view. This section is also wheelchair accessible!

We have so many wonderful season subscribers in our reserved section that very few reserved seats are available for our regular season shows when we go on sale to the general public. For our special engagements, approximately half the seats are available on the public on sale day. If you’re dying for a reserved seat to your favorite band, give us a call before we go on sale and we can advise you on how to best achieve that goal. 

General Admission

General admission is any area of the venue with grass under your feet. Patrons with general admission tickets are encouraged to BYOC (bring your own chair) as we have a small amount to rent, but often sell out fast. The perfect chair for our venue is a standard fold-up lawn or camping chair. That’s right–no beach chairs so low you feel like you’re sitting on the ground in our venue!

The only thing we ask is NO HIGH-BACK, LOUNGE, OR ZERO GRAVITY CHAIRS, please! Those cause visibility and space issues for those sitting around you, they might complain, and then we’d be forced to make you move or sit on the ground. We don’t like doing that, so please don’t make us! 

No surprise, general admission is the most affordable seating option at The Kenley Amphitheater. If you want to get the best spot in the grass, you might want to consider lining up early. However, even in the very back of the grass, you are still less than 150 feet from the stage! No binoculars needed! The Kenley Amphitheater is so intimate, you’ll have a perfect view no matter where you sit.


There you have it–the rundown on all three seating sections at The Kenley Amphitheater. We hope this helps, but if you are still unsure about which seating option is for you, please give us a call at 801-546-8575.
