What is the difference between VIP, Premier and Reserved level tickets?
Our VIP section is elevated and spacious with great views and is the only section with two-top tables. Front Premier section offers the seats closest in proximity to the stage with a full view at tables of four. The premier section is located between the Front Premier and Reserved and VIP sections. The reserved section encompasses the remainder of the seating in the venue. While the reserved seats are the furthest back in the venue, relatively speaking, 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.
