Praying for our #SBMF Fam in #Houston. Facts:
-- The average annual rainfall in Houston is 50 inches. The city has seen 25 inches of rain in two days. Another 25 could fall by Saturday.
-- The Houston Independent School District has canceled school for the week for the district's 215,000 students.
-- Dallas is opening a "mega-shelter" at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center,
---Energy provider CenterPoint says 96% of its Houston customers have power, but more than 104,000 are without electricity as crews experience difficulty reaching affected areas.

Any person conducting such a check (whether wearing a uniform or not) must provide immediate proof of appropriate identity on request.

How do I gain admission to the Comedy and Music concerts?
Everyone MUST have a General Admission ticket. The Comedy Concert is General Admission (GA) with seating. The Music Concerts are GA with Standing Room Only, unless you purchase a Gold or Platinum upgrade.
=============

What does a basic Concert Ticket allow me?
The basic tickets gain you entry into the venue, and are all General Admission. At the Comedy Show, there will be first come, first served seating. At the Music Concerts, the General Admission is Standing Room Only. You can buy ticket upgrades for the Music Concerts (on top of the price of the General Admission tickets) for the Gold Access Area or the Platinum Tables, each of which is described in detail on the ticketing website.
=============

Is there seating in the Gold Access Area?
There is limited, open seating in the Gold Access area, which covers about 75% of the capacity sold for that area. This seating in the Gold Access area is on a first come first served basis. The extra added benefit is that you get to stand right in front of the stage and there is a bar within the area so you won’t have to go to the concessions in the back of the arena to get a drink.
===============

Is there seating for the Comedy Concerts?
Yes, for the Comedy Concerts, all entries are General Admission and there is seating on a first come first served basis.

What if I want seating for the Music Concerts?
For the Music Concerts, we basically have two add-on upgrade options versus our standard General Admission (Standing Room Only, i.e. no seats) ticket that everyone needs to purchase in order to come into the venue:

1) The first is an upgrade to the Gold Access Area, where there is a limited amount of seating (approx. 75% of capacity) and access to the closest standing room to the stage, and a dedicated no host bar. So, if you want to be sure to get a seat in the Gold Access Area, you must be among the first to arrive for that area.

2) The second upgrade is to the Platinum Seating Area, where you are given a reserved seat at a table on a raised platform with excellent sight lines and no host bar table service. The only way you can get a guaranteed reserved seat is by buying a ticket upgrade for a seat at one of the Platinum Tables.

All of these items are described in more detail on our ticket page on our website, www.soulbeach.com. Just click “BUY NOW” and you will get a complete listing of the ticket purchase options.

What time do the doors open at the Concerts?
The doors open at 6PM for all Concerts.
