Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between VIP, Front Premier, Premier, and Reserved level tickets?

Our VIP section is elevated and spacious with great views and is the only section with tables for two. The Front Premier section includes seats closest to the stage. The Premier section is just behind the Front Premier section in relation to the stage.  The Reserved section encompasses the remainder of our seats. While the reserved seats are the farthest back in the venue, keep in mind it is a very intimate setting, so every seat will provide a great view and unique concert-going experience.

We do not issue paper tickets. Your name is on a list at the front door. Your email confirmation and a photo ID are required to check in.
