Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

The other two will not be allowed in without tickets. They always overbook and even everyone with tickets doesn't get in. If you go, get there early to stand in line.

I doubt it will be. They always over book and can put them to use for someone else! Enjoy the show and GO EARLY and be prepared to stand a while outside!
