Very much enjoyed the presentation. we would have preferred our seats more centered and back a few rows from the stage for better viewing.

Arrive early to find parking (at least 30 minutes).

We had a wonderful time. We ended up with tickets front row center and could not have been happier. Extremely enjoyable!

I lived in Boston for many years and was excited to see the pops again. It was fantastic, energetic, engaging and one of the best concerts we have been to in a while.
