This is about the 5th time that I have seen New Edition in my life time. I have always liked their songs and it was great to see them all back on the stage once again. My wife and I really enjoyed ourselves at the concert and I can't wait to see them again. We didn't however like the venue where the concert was. We waited in line for a LONG time trying to get in to park. Once we were in, we had to park a very far distance from the entrance and walk through some freshly cut weeds. Plus walk up and down hills. You can't even take a bottle of water into this place and it was HOT that evening. I will not be returning to the Wolf Creek Amphitheater, but I will go see New Edition again.

Enjoyed the whole night! New Edition brought me back to my youth of growing up in the 80's.

The funk fest was enjoyable. I was disapointed with the line up change at the last moment. Comparing it to the funk fest held last year in Norfolk, this one needed more organization. Sitting in tight seats for five hours was a bit much. Norfolk had the bands merge on one stage with little interruptions.

My wife and drove all the way from New Mexico!! The concert was unforgettable, the venue was great, the sound was great!! I would recommend anyone to go see a concert at the San Manuel Indian Casino!! At times it felt like the floor was moving to the beat too!!

Excellent show: Klymaxx opened and wow!! Those ladies still have it...They had us dancing in the aisles. What can I say about the Barkays, Slave and of course Lakeside?? I danced for almost 2 hours straight. They way they each took turns coming to the stage after a few songs, it was constant hit after hit. Sometimes it took a minute to determine who was on stage the transition was soooo smooth!. Loved this show, only disappointment was the main reason I purchased tickets: Morris Day. Just didnt seem to get us back to the heights where Lakeside left us. I only stayed through 2 of Morris' songs. No problem though I was danced out by that time anyway :-)

The concert was absolutely great! I only went just to see Morris Day and the Time but the entire concert was very good. I love the other bands as well. Everybody still sounded great just like back in the day. If I had tickets to see Morris again I would go in a heart beat!

This was a great collection of some of the key groups from the 80's. The music was great, the memories it brought back were great, it was just a great time. Everyone there was having a great time. My only complaint, and it is pretty minor, was that the sound was so loud that in some cases it took half the song before you could figure out what song it was - not a band issue at all. I had a great time though and would not hesitate to go again and bring along some friends.

My girlfriend and I had a really fun time. Loved the bands. The only thing we wished for improvement would be better speakers, alot of times it had a lot of static so you sometimes couldnt hear what they were singing but thank god we know the songs. Also the picture quality on the screen, alot of times were blurry. So the bands were great, we loved their entertainment just wish we could have heard them a little better due to the speakers. Thought Morris Day was awesome, just turned back time when we were young.

This concert was put together very well. I enjoyed the constant movement of music between the groups. The \u2018No Wait Time between the groups was phenomenal. I enjoyed watching different races of people enjoying old school music. Dancing all over the place and really enjoying each other. This was priceless. They all were excellent. I would go back and see this show again and again. My husband and I really enjoyed this concert. We did things we have not done in a while, like enjoying a dam good concert.

The funkfest concert was great! The artists and the music was awesome. The venue was the issue. The parking was horrible to say the least. It took us almost 2 hours to get in the parking lot, it was a mess, causing us to miss a part of the show. I will not attend another event at that venue.

Great concert, really enjoyed SWV, Dougie Fresh and New Edition. The venue was great as well, there were no bad seats. Even the lawn area had a great view!

Horrible, horrible venue. It was so hot. No shaded area. Super far, way outside the perimeter. Hate the fact that we could not bring our own food and drink. The vendors there were high and food was not good. Drinks were horrible too. Folks around me were smoking weed and it was suffocating.

New Edition put on a GREAT show! Doug E. Fresh was a little disappointing. I wish he had performed "all the way to heaven" and "ain't no half steppin;" instead of playing the "guess the theme song" game. SWV was great, but their set was very short. The venue itself was nice. The $20 parking in a vacant, gravel lot was ridiculous and unsafe. VIP Parking was the same price and was on a paved lot behind the building. I'm not interested in attending any other events at this venue if the parking conditions don't improve. The vacant parking lot was across the street from the venue and down a hill. There was minimal lighting (several gentlemen were seen relieving themselves out in the open). Bottom line - Never turn down an opportunity to see New Edition........just don't do it at the Wolf Creek Amphitheater!

I came to the event really excited to see Loose Ends and Erykah Badu. Loose Ends put on a good performance. I also enjoyed Raheem DeVaughn who I am not really a fan of his music. Badu was a disappointment. She did not do enough of her best songs and her energy level was not as high as I have seen her in past performances.

I was unable to use due to having had a medical procedure done 2 days prior and was still recuperating. The response that I heard from my friends who did attend was that it was wonderful show and NE did the damn thing.

Doug E Fresh brought back so many old memories....What an unforgettible experience. I will go again! The venue location & parking situation was LESS than desirable. It was an absolute mess. One way in, and one way out! Yikees!

My friends and I definitely enjoyed the show at Wolf Creek on May 18th. I truly believe Wolf Creek is a beautiful facility and I hope to enjoy quality entertainment at this venue. New Edition, I must say, continues to "wow" me each time I see them perform. The group truly ensures the audience members have a great time, to reflect on the days of our youth and coming of age reflections.

New Edition was amazing and I would love to see them again! The parking price was to high and that would cost me to go to Chastain Park concerts instead of Wolf Creek

The artists arrived real late and the venue could use a better sound system and more projection screens. I would not return...not worth the drive from Illinois!

Overall I thought the event was very well thought out. It my first vist to the venue and it was a great facility to host the event (I hope the venue can remain open to host more concerts). Simularly I thought the lineup of artists was good collection of fan favorites cross multiple generes. If I had any compliant it would the increasingly larger than life Diva projections of Ms. Badu who was the headling performer. For the 3rd time in a many concerts, Ms. Badu arraives fashionably late essentially tiring out the crowd which has been so paitently awaiting her arriaval. I love her music and have a great deal of respect for her artistry, I believe she needs to demonstrate more respect for her fans by dumping long waits for her grand entrance and simply show up timely for the set. Its hard to get energy from the crowd she may desire to generate a great performance when the crowd is pissed they have been waiting for 90 mins since the last performer for her to show up on stage. All in all Funk Fest was a solid event. I think for future shows they could/should incorporate more of the local ATL talent into the show lineup. Such a move would also boost sales as many local acts have large followings.

The opening acts of SWV and Dougie Fresh brought a lot of energy. As always New Edition put on a great performance and it was good to have all the members there. Bobby Brown did his thing. With him they added humor to the show. Wolfcreek Amphitheater was an excellent facility and location. Traffic and parking was better than Chastian and you could see well from anywhere. I love having events in my area in South Fulton. More concerts need to be at Wolfcreek. The crowd was live and it felt intimate. Only negative is the unhealthy food selections of the vendors. It did not appeal to all. Dougie Fresh was almost an hour late. Overall, Great show!!

The logistics of getting in and out of the venue were very unpleasant. Not to mention the food selection was awful. Most of events of this type at amphitheaters allow the patrons to bring their own food and beverage. If the patrons cannot bring food and beverage then have better concession stand options! The gap between SWV and Doug E. Fresh (over an hour) was not explained!

New Edition always gives a good show would have rather heard more of them towards the end or BBD....dont really care for the Johnny Gill performance...Bobby and Ralph ripped it! NE Heartbreak allday! Missed the beginning of SWV due to the lack of being misinformed by the venue about us being able to bring our own food and beverages which myself and Im sure many many others were looking forward to, had to take items back to the car like all other guests that came prepared; and because of this we missed SWV opening. Very upset that Wolfcreek would not allow us to bring our food and drinks eventhough their advertisements stated otherwise. Would unlikely attend another event there. Purchased my tickets with the intentions of bring my own items because it was stated. Bad advertisement. However, Dougie Fresh was Fab! He got the crowd excited and pumped up....took us way back! Love love Dougie Fresh performance! SWV still "Got It." Eventhough, I was disappointed with the venue and its a nice venue, the Funk Fest was soo much fun!

This show was absolutely amazing. Erykah rocked it and was so personable. V.I.P seating was superb. Can't wait for Erykah to come back to Atlanta!

The Show was Awesome! REally enjoyed Doug E Fresh!! He just took us to another zone. The venue is new and really nice, but the parking was horrible, you had to have cash and the ATMs didnt work. That sucked but the Performers made up for it. Would see them again. I Would go to the venue again if they changed some things.

The event was nice but the time between artist was far too long. It made for a very long day sitting in the hot sun. There shouldn't have been so long a period of DJ's and other time wasting episodes between performances.

New Edition put on the best show I've seen in a long time. They did all the routines that we have come to love, they song the songs the way we remembered them and best of all they all work together to make it a memorable occasion. Their voices sounded awesome and they looked fabulous. I saw them for the first time in the 80's and it was as good as the first time!!! The guys put in the work and it truly paid off because they look like teenagers up there!!!
