Waited in the cold from 7:00 PM to after 8:00 PM for the box office to give us our tickets. Gave up after spending over an hour in line and not moving forward.

We waited in the cold from 6.45 PM to after 8:00 PM for the box office to give us our tickets. It was absolute chaos. Nobody would say why there was such a long delay. We left after spending over an hour in line and not moving forward. We then had...continued

After waiting in the cold for over an hour, the "technically difficulty" was resolved, and we were finally brought in. Althought the venue seemed disorganized, and there were many seats with obstructed views, the concert was lovely. Great music...continued

The producers of this event were either shamefully unprepared for the crowd or else decided to make everyone from GOLDSTAR wait on the sidewalk until those who paid full price were seated... after nearly an hour standing outside to exchange my...continued

To advertise this as a Roberta Flak event was very misleading. Stood outside in the cold for 45 minutes waiting to get in (the show started at 7:30). Lots of bad acts with horrible, muddled sound until Ms Flack came on stage at 11:10 PM and sang...continued

Totally disorganized waiting procedure. They made hundreds of people climb flights of stairs to wait for tickets to be taken.

Let's face it, we were all there to see Roberta perform.
Finally after six acts, of which three were borderline,...continued

This was a musical retrospective to celebrate the music of George Harrison.
First of all, the venue was disorganised and chaotic. We had to wait in an uncomfortable area on the stairs for over an hour to be seated. The concert stated an hour late...continued

As others have commented, the logistics were incredibly poorly handled. I'd say about 90% of the people there had vouchers, not tickets. They didn't even start processing us until after 7:30 (which was when the event was supposed to start) and...continued

Concert started almost an hour late. Total disorganization and long lines of hundreds of people waiting down a long city block in the freezing cold weather. Concert was way overlong. Roberta didn't come on until 11:15pm and concert ended close to...continued

There was great chaos regarding the box office and a wait of over an hour to get our tickets. But as with all NYC events, there was a show before the show like the woman who said she was going to have a heart attack from standing in the cold and...continued

It started with the hour long queue outside of the venue! Not a word from the organizers to the people waiting outside in the cold about what was going on and why we were waiting outside instead of being allowed to go in. 2nd major issue was...continued
