How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Experience was great overall. Went with some first timers to Ravinia, everyone had a good time. Loved the rolling platform of guest musicians for the George Harrison number. The show was fun, all the musicians sounded very good. Only one complaint, a minor one was discussed on the ride home. Early on, Rick said they would play Sgt. Pepper, then Live at Budokan, then some more Beatles and Cheap Trick Stuff. They did both albums, then did some Beatles, but didn't do any more of their own songs. A lot of the audience must have thought the same thing, as the pavillion was slow to empty, people clapping, waiting, only to see the orchestra start packing up and techs come out to start breaking things down. Not sure if there is a noise curfew around Ravinia and they had to stop when they did? But many were hoping for more Cheap Trick.

Help others enjoy a great night out

When going to Ravinia, check to see if they have multiple events on the same night in different venues there. If they do, get there extra early if you want to get decent parking.
