I'm interested in attending a 80's rock concert. Do patrons typically sit during the performance? I hate standing for 2 hours so, I can see the stage because everyone down front decided to stand. I realize that that the theater cannot dictate how the audience behaves so, I guess it can change.
Sit in Row 1 of the balcony.
( but, typically, patrons do not stand)
I think it would depend on the type of group that is performing. I can say at the show I saw, the audience was older, and definitely sat for the "Songs of the Silver Screen." I agree that having to stand to see is not fun at all! It is a theater, so the stage is raised above the seats. It is very comfortable seating. They have a second level, so you may want to get tickets in the first row of the mezzanine, this way you are assured of a good view. Enjoy!
I have attended several concerts there, and audience members have not stood during the performances.
I have attended many shows at AMT, and I can tell you that I have never seen anyone standing during any performance. It's not a rock concert venue; it's more of a traditional concert hall.
Standing ovations excepted, of course!
I believe that people will remain seated because of the way the venue seating is arranged. I can't be sure though.
There is seating, but I’m unsure how a concert of that type would work.
The average age of the attendees is 65+, so standing up for long periods of time won't be an issue!! Also, this venue is well staff and they wouldn't allow it for very long!! There are no bad seats in the comfy setting!!
I have seen people stand, but usually not for the whole concert. I agree about first balcony row. If you can get a seat in the first row of the rear division of the orchestra, that might also be a very good choice. The staff usually keeps the area in front of that row clear so your view will be unobstructed even if people stand on the side.
I agree best way to find an answer to your question is to call AMT.
Yes i have the same problem - if you get a seat in the balcony, in the first row it wont be a problem,and the sound is just as good there- as is the view
