Presale started today. Not buying tix right now, as I have no idea if we'd be able to make it.

Yes

Yes.  Far better than Orpheum.

I would think so, but I'm usually in Orch.

You can also pick your actual online, unlike with TM who gives you a supposed best available choice.

I forgot there was one until I started reading this thread. :lol: 

 

It's been several years since I've been in the theatre, 2009 maybe. :dunno:

This should be a "nice" show. Wish I was closer to the venue. For those going... Crazy Finger

i think the calvin is great. standard small theater with one balcony. its a nice theater but definitely not in the best condition. they let you bring drinks in now (bar is on second level and usually crowded during setbreak so get your drinks during the performance)

 

the floor has 8 rows of removable seats up front (its a 'dance floor' w/ no seats for more dancy shows)  these 8 front rows aren't really on a slant, and the back outside corners of that section kind of suck. when you get to the permanent seats it starts to slant a lot more so if you are in the back you are far-ish away but you are still able to see ok. id say the 5th row (row EE) til about the 2 row of permanent seats (row B...)  shouldnt be your top choice since there is no slant there. (although i would choose those flat front rows over the back of the floor or balcony any day, since you are close, especially for a solo artist)

 

balcony has a front section of 4 rows. these are great great seats, although for a solo artist you might feel far away, when its a band w/ a light show these are the best seats in the house. and the back section which is steep and fun but def the worse seats in the house. even Row E (and back) for a solo artist wouldnt be that great.

 

also remember bruce is on our left (stage right?????????) so keep it to the left guys!
