This Long Island theater is where classic-rock buffs from the ’burbs meet their NYC counterparts. The booking alternates between iconic nostalgia acts like Foreigner and contemporary pop-rock sensations such as Paramore. Whoever's playing, expect a populist, ballpark-style concert experience.

Phenomenal outdoor venue that literally sits on the edge of Zach's Bay.  Shows are here from May to October and most major artists will stop there for a show.  It has been increased in size over the last decade, but still remains a great place to see a show.  Bands that I have seen there range from Rush to B-52's to Phish to Slayer.  The sound can get a bit lost sometimes, pending on the weather, but is usually a pleasant evening out.  For many years, alcohol was not sold within stadium, but alas, they have come to their senses and booze is available in the arena again.

One of the most unique venues in all of NY! The stage is on the water, and you have views of not only the band(s) you're seeing but also of the Atlantic Ocean. This place is fun to go with a big group of friends, and make sure to tailgate before! The only problem is the lines for all of the stands - whether it's merchandise, food, or drink stands, expect to wait a long time. Either way it is worth it for this crazy experience. Spend the day at Jones Beach and soak up the sun, shower at their facilities, and then head on over to Jones Beach Nikon theater for a fun musical night!
