A lot of talking around us dampened the experience.....almost need Ravinia to make an announcement about respecting the performers and neighbors. Ramsey was great and Natalie Cole was OK..A beautiful evening in Ravinia.

Enjoyed it immensely. Opening band from RSMI was soft, smooth and seductive. Ramsey came on, and as always, thrilling. Ms. Cole, voice and all, just beautiful. This was for my sister's 51st and we really enjoyed ourselves. You guys rock....

I thoroughly enjoyed both performances. I would have been lovely if the two could have done 1 song together.

It was so easy to pick up the tickets. My husband and I were pleased with our seats and the concert was wonderful. Will definitely use Goldstar again and again.
