A cash bar will be available during the concert in the Convention Center.
Advance tickets are available online at Brown Paper Tickets: www.brownpapertickets.com/event/635469 . Tickets sold in advance of the concert are priced at $20.00 each. Tickets sold at the door beginning at 6 pm the evening of the concert will be priced at $25.00 each.
