Thanksgiving VIP UPDATE
We are pleased to announce a brand new offering now included with our Aragon Ballroom VIP packages. Grab one of our Much Obliged or Turkey, Wine & Song packages and you will gain exclusive access to Saturday's sound check. Get the true behind-the-scenes look as you watch the show come together from the ground room floor.
In addition, you can expect some band and fan interaction with a bit of Q&A interspersed between botched rehearsals of All Things Ninja*. Maybe you can appeal to Joel's soft spot and sneak in that favorite song request? This is the first sound check offering we've ever included with a VIP package so who knows what may happen.
Soundcheck is slated for 3:30 pm and we'll make sure to update you before the event to confirm. Bring your air guitar and come grab a sneak peak at what the night may have in store.
