the event started over one hour late, the music was OK but way too loud... which made people leave. I enjoyed the end with the Agape choir .

"Free Tickets" - Don't think I'll go for that again..... Last row, head 12 inches from the ceiling of the theatre. Unbearably hot in theatre....Sat through initial performances, praying for something better...people getting up and leaving all...continued

It started one hour and 15 minutes late, the sound was WAY too loud, and the performance was redundant. The seats were so high you could get a nose bleed. Eventually we were able to move down because there were lots of empty seats

I was very disappointed. The performance was scheduled to start at 7:30. I left at 8:30 and the performance still hadn't started. I have never had such a disappointing experience at a goldstar event. All of my other experiences were wonderful.

THIS WAS NOT AT ALL WHAT WAS ADVERTISED. THE MUSIC WAS LOUD AND CONTINUED WITH NO STOP. WE LEFT ALONE WITH HUNDEREDS OF OTHER AFTER THE DEAFING SOUNDS OF 30 MINTUES. IT WAS NOT WORTH THE FEES AND THE PARKING OF $20.00 YOU SHOULD ISSUE CREDITS...continued

This was the worst Goldstar event I've ever attended. I took my son and a friend. The start time on the tickets was 7:30, the event had yet to start at 8:40 p.m.!! Many people left before it began citing that it was disrespectful to working...continued

I thought the "world music tribute to Quincy Jones" would somehow be interpretations of Q's music via world music. This was a showcase for a project by members of Agape Church. I guess they felt the 90 second video presentation at the top of the...continued

The venue started one hour later than the announced show-time.
Very disorganized and weak performance.
Boring performance and Quincy only spoke for a minute after two hours into the show.
Poor stage setting and very poor vocals.
We are the...continued

At the start of the show, Quincy Jones was lauded for what he has given to the world - and we were told that now it was the world's turn to give back. All I can say is that the amazing Mr. Jones deserves better - much, much better.
First, the...continued

Oh my.....what can I say that is any different from all the other comments? I am wholeheartedly in agreement with all of them.

First though, my kudos to the musicans. For the most part I greatly enjoyed the music.

The singing on the...continued

OUCH!!!!!! I purchased 6 tickets off of another site, and 4 more off of Goldstar because I told everyone what a cool night it will probably be based on it's description with legendary producer Quincy Jones. Another friend wanted to go, so I even...continued

The program started 35 minutes late, not good - no one ever came on stage to address the problem about the delay, not good - I think it should have been a little more diverse in the use of creativity - It could have been done much better with a...continued

While I enjoyed this multimedia event as a lover of world music, it was not well organized. It was sponsored by a largely unknown collective of musicians called PILGRIM. It started a full hour late (although people kept streaming in this full...continued

I was VERY disappointed that the event started 1 hour late, and there was no MC, or Representative to even make an announcement about the start time, or apologize for the delay. THEN, the entire show was an Asian performance art play with World...continued

-30 min queue for Will Call.
-Show not "quite" as billed - more of an amateur+ electronica/world act than was billed. Also show billing made it sound as if there would be 3-4 separate acts, not one act plus 3 "special guests".

Although we liked some parts of it, overall, we were disappointed. The performance started late, seemed disorganized, and we didn't know what performances were going to be presented. We thought the musicians would perform some of Quincy Jones'...continued
