The Tuscaloosa Amphitheater finished up its second season of live concerts Thursday night with a sold-out performance featuring Neil Young with Crazy Horse in front of 7,500 fans.

Here’s what some of the patrons had to say about the Amp during its season finale:

“The first impression I had when I walked in was amazing. I saw people of all ages.” — Addison Arnistead


“Neil Young is the first performance I have attended at the amphitheater, and I absolutely love it. … I wish they had Irish whiskey at the bar.” — Taylor Reed


“I think the amphitheater is excellent for the city of Tuscaloosa. It brings out the night life or entertainment side of the town.” — Bud Gibson


“I have attended four performances this year, including Neil Young, Alan Jackson, My Morning Jacket and Widespread Panic. I have enjoyed every last performance and I wouldn’t change a thing.” — Andy Howard Deason


“In my opinion, B.B. King was one of the best shows I’ve seen at the amphitheater.” — Blake Rollo


“I have attended three concerts at the amphitheater this year, including this one, and the atmosphere is perfect. It’s a very stylish venue and it covers several demographics based on all the music groups it brings. … I always dreamed about having an amphitheater or an arena-type venue to get the bigger-name bands to perform. … I wish there was a lawn section where the funky people can go to dance and not get in the way of others.” — Michelle Baker


“I have attended three shows at the amphitheater this year and I have absolutely loved them all. I would love to see AC/DC and Sade perform at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater. … I wish they had more than one stage.” — Clay Hart


“Only at the amphitheater will you find good music and fine women. … One reason why I feel the amphitheater is such a good venue is because there is not a bad seat in the house. … Meeting people who have a common interest in the same music as you is what I call finding common ground.” — Daniel Miles


“This is my first time at the amphitheater, but as soon as I walked in, I was like, ‘Wow, this place is sick.’ It’s a really laid-back atmosphere and everyone is just embracing it.” — Jackson Stephens
