(WSYR-TV) — Country music star Morgan Wallen is set to perform at the St. Joseph’s Health Amphitheater at Lakeview Friday, July 8.

Thick traffic and long lines are expected for the sold-out show.

Here’s a list of preliminary items to make sure you are set for the show:


  • Due to the fact that the Morgan Wallen concert is sold out and for the safety, security, and experience of all fans on the lawn, outside lawn chairs and inflatable seating units will NOT be permitted in the venue for this show.
  • A limited quantity of lawn chair rentals will be available on-site for $5 (a 50% discounted price), while supplies last.


  • To reduce staff contact with guests’ belongings, only clear plastic bags, no larger than 12” x 6” x 12” and/or small clutch bags (4.5”x 6.5”) will be allowed into the venue. No other bags of any type will be allowed.  All bags will be thoroughly searched before entry with a bag is permitted.
