why would you have to print the tickets and waste paper when they had machines that could read from your phone?

The venue is beautiful and the concert was great! I loved the music and loved that there was no intermission. My only complaint is that I wish we had had seats closer to the stage. Being on the side was fine, just wish we had been somewhat closer.

What a fun night! Hugh was wonderful, and the band is great! This was the first time I'd attended an event at this venue as well and it's a lovely location with comfy chairs and great acoustics. Just an overall entertaining evening all the way...continued
