Seven friends, and I, went Monday, October 3rd, 2016, to see Tom Jones, at the House of Blues. I called several times to check for available seating. Three people in our group required handicap seating, but I was informed the seats were sold. During one of my calls, I spoke to an unfriendly employee, Jocelyn, who told me she could sell us a box of seats on the second balcony, for $4,000.00., and then lowered it to $3,000.00., which I couldn't afford. Also, the view and acoustics on the second balcony, leave much to be desired. I don't understand why Tom Jones chose a venue, where "VIPs" were the only ones seated, and he had to stare at about a thousand long-time fans barely standing up.
We paid extra to "pass the line." The amount was subtracted from our dinners. The food was very expensive for the low quality. Two ladies ordered the steaks, and at $28.00, received about 1/4 inch of chewy steak, and the gentlemen received a 3/4 inch size. We went to "pass the line" at 6:00pm, and discovered there were a couple hundred people in line. As we were herded in, other people, who didn't even pay to get in line, shoved themselves in. At 6:30, the doors opened, and one of the employees herding us in, stated 1,100 were coming in. (?) Before Tom Jones came out at 8:00pm, there were many drunk people by then, shoving in, to get closer to the front, and fights broke out. We were in the front, and with the exception of a woman regurgitating near us, we didn't know what was going on behind us. Never again!!!
