The DSO concert at Frontier Field drew a record 4,298 concertgoers in 2015. Kristen Mack-Perry and Darren Kemp of NYmusic.com said of the Frontier Field show in 2015:
“The crowd was a cohesive body of dancing and celebration. The unique setup allowed for an intimate feel of an indoor show, in a stadium, accompanied by a beautiful summer night with clear skies. They were dancing in their seats, on the grass, and at the concession stands. The music never stopped.”
DSO has performed at Frontier Field from 2015 to 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic caused their annual trip to Rochester to be canceled. The July show will be their sixth trip to Frontier Field.
