Ak-Chin Pavilion (formerly Desert Sky Pavilion and before that Cricket Wireless Pavilion) is a wonderful open-air amphitheater located in western Phoenix. The pavilion can seat up to 20,000 people, with 8,000 reserved seats under a roof, and 12,000 more on the hillside grass. Its large size makes it a popular place to hold music concerts and other events, and many well-known bands such as the Dave Matthews Band have performed here. For those who aren't seated close to the stage under the roof, but are enjoying the seats on the grass hillside, don't worry--there are plenty of large-screen televisions scattered about the facility to make viewing the concert easy, even if you're far away.
