Hard Rock Park KC and Sunshine Band Crowd Affect Question

Hard Rock Park: I am aware that crowds have been relatively low but I was wondering if anyone knew what affect this concert would have on attendance.

Hey everyone. This is my first post and I just joined Theme Park Insiders. I've been searching for info on this site for awhile and would just like to tell everyone what a great site this is. Keep up the great work!! I also have a question regarding the new Hard Rock Park. I will be going to South Carolina next week and decided to stop by this new park on Saturday the 30th. I just realized that this is the day that KC and the Sunshine Band is scheduled to perform at the park. I am aware that crowds have been relatively low but I was wondering if anyone knew what affect this concert would have on attendance. Thanks very much for any input. Reviews on rides and the overall park are also welcome.

KC and the Sunshine Band is incredible in concert (I'll be seeing them in the Seattle area tomorrow night) and you should definitely go see them!

They don't attract huge crowds and usually only play small venues and native american casinos so I would not expect attendance at the park that day to be affected too much.

We were there on the frikkin' Fourth of July and everything in the park was a walk-on. There was a Sister Hazel concert that night, and it did appear like the show did bring more people into the park (the amphitheatre looked packed), but you really didn't feel their impact elsewhere in the park.

Plus, I wouldn't anticipate the concert crowd to show up until later in the day, so I'd recommend going to the park in the morning, getting your ride on, and taking some time outside the park (coming back later for the concert, night rides, or the Bohemian Rhapsody show). But try to catch one or two of the park's shows while you're there. They're all a little corny, but the casts bring a lot of energy.
