Oh this will be MUCH different than the symphony ITK. Be prepared to stand. Depending on the crowd people either sit (like at the symphony) or everyone stands. You will not have to worry about video cameras most likely as those are not allowed in.

Wear comfortable cloths and comfy shoes. If it is outside then bring layers. be prepared to pay an arm and a leg and another arm for food and drinks inside the venue. Be prepared for it to be loud. You may even want to bring cottom balls or ear plugs to put in yoru ears just in case.

GB, thanks you always take time to understand me. I will surely do as you suggest. Since it is in Chicago and gas so high we are t aking the train which will t ake us all day to get there from ST. Louis. Plane was out of question since like you said paying arm and leg is really truth. Now if we want to eat something or drink, better consider going to restroom (unless charge there too) to get some water from faucet if get too warm. Standing? Gee, this is really making me wonder if I am up to this. I guess got no choice if the entertainer stands all the while guess the audience does the same. GB, you know who George Michael is? I know there are stories but that is none of my business. I just like his music. Well, I am looking forward to it in one way but I could accept watching him on tv. Thanks GB. Least have idea and I will bring the cotton balls. Or do they sell them too?

Yep, he's the guy from Wham! and then later a solo artist. I really enjoyed seeing him on the first episode of "Eli Stone" and again on a later one.

We just went to the Styx/Boston show on Saturday night (6/28) here in Vegas. Inexpensive tickets brought a big crowd (around 10,000) to a good, olde-fashioned arena rock show. Great stuff!

Loud reminds me of a concert I took my oldest daughter to back 17 yrs ago. It was New Kids on the Block. The screaming from all the girls was deafening. I remember wishing I had earplugs then.

Yep I know George Michael. I listened to Wham in the 80's and then his solo stuff too.

ITK, most concerts will let you bring bottled water in as long as it is not opened. You can save some money that way. Not all allow it though so be prepared to throw it out if they tell you it can't come in. Best bet is to just bring a backpack and put your water and food and warm clothes in it and chances are they will let you in without really checking.

Bring your own cotton balls. Some places sell ear plugs, but ANYTHING you buy there is cost a ton more than if you buy it before you get there.
