Here are three easy tips to make sure you’re getting the most out of your money and can fully enjoy your night:

  1. Make sure to check the venue’s website prior to the show to view their individual COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines. You’ll want to avoid any surprises when attempting to check-in.
  2. This may sound simple, but make sure your phone is fully charged and clear up all the storage space you can. You’ll want to take tons of photos and videos, plus you might need it to call a ride after. Keep in touch with your concert buddies or just for general emergencies. 
  3. Wear comfortable shoes. You may just find yourself standing for the entire length of the show, in addition to standing in lines just to get in. Nothing can ruin a night quite like hot or painful feet.

Most of all, stay safe and have fun enjoying all that live performances have to offer!
