Main Floor (Sections 9-10)/Balcony (Sections 11-12)
How was your experience?
This is the 2nd time in a year that we've seen Chicago in concert, and they didn't disappoint us at all - what talented musicians and such a great band! We sat in the 3rd section (from the wall) on the right side of the balcony facing the band at SF's Masonic Center - great view of all the musicians and great acoustics after using earplugs stuck in only partway to block out the too loud sound that seems to dominate all live concerts these days. (Didn't seem to be as loud when we saw them at the Uptown Theater in Napa, but we sat further back from the stage.) Most seats at Masonic Center are excellent visually and acoustically except for the balcony side sections against the walls, so it is an excellent event venue. Wednesday evening street parking was easy a couple blocks away, especially as there seemed to be a big jam afterwards to get out of the Center's garage.
