It was a little disconcerting that the doors didn't open up until about 5 minutes before the show, but everyone got time to find their seats and take in the ambiance without feeling rushed. Ushers were excellent.

Ate at the KC Cafe on the Terrace Level. Reasonable prices, great food, and no waiting. Ideal for having a civilized meal before the show.

Great band. It was fun to see so many people dressed in their finest for the fancy dress dinner that was to follow.
