SYRACUSE -- Fans who missed out on part of the Dave Matthews Band concert are being offered credit towards attending another show.
Live nation reps say they've emailed offers to people who couldn't make it through the gates by the time the show started.
According to CNY Central, the credit will be $50 for each lawn seat that was purchased and $100 for each pavilion seat that was
purchased. The credit can be used at any Live Nation concert, not just ones held at the Lakeview Amphitheater.
Ryan Misencik, a concert-goer from Whitesboro, says he was disappointed in his first experience at the amphitheater.
"People were actually, were trying to get refunds for the $10 that they paid for the parking and they weren't willing to give up the $10 for the parking," Misencik said. "That kind of stabs you in the back. You don't even get to see the show and you forked out tolls, gas, something for dinner while you're there. But you're going into this venue and not actually having the experience that you were hoping for your first concert at lakeview."
A closed pedestrian bridge and lack of shuttles contributed to the issue. The pedestrian bridge was closed because of construction in one of the parking lots at the amphitheater.
There was a concert at the amphitheater Wednesday, with the band Cheap Trick, and the pedestrian bridge was open for the event.
