    Lots of seats! Be sure to get something in the center because the sound quality is not great otherwise.

    This place had the most unprofessional soundsystem I have ever experienced. Such a shame to have a Bob Dylan concert here. Furthermore, to not have even one screen to show the stage is a joke. Super grateful that I did not purchase any other concert ticket for the future. Even my highschool's stage had a better concert experience.
