What a great gig, especially for you classic rock types. Great band and plays along with the videos, knocked out eagles, Tom petty, Lenard skinnard and other. Highly suggest this show. Theater was good, not a bad seat, sound was great

Smaller auditorium, which i love. More of a up close feel, great sound and comfortable seats. The balcony seats look really cozy and had the nicer seats and project closer to the stage.

I can't remember the exact section but I was on the balcony. The theatre is laid out really well where you have a good seat pretty much anywhere in there.
