Concert Policies

and Garden Etiquette

Seating – General admission for all concerts (first come, first served).  

Outdoor Concerts – Feel free to bring a blanket or lawn chairs. We ask that concert goers with high back lawn chairs remain in the rear to allow the best possible view for all.   

Indoor Concerts – Chairs are set up for indoor concerts, however in nicer weather some visitors prefer to bring their own chairs to sit on the patios while enjoying the music through the open doors of the conservatories.

Alcohol - A cash bar is available at Tower Hill concerts for visitors age 21 and over with proper ID. No outside alcohol is allowed to be brought onto the premises for any  event or occasion.

Photos - For most shows, video cameras and audio recording devices are not allowed. Still photo cameras are generally acceptable without a flash; however it is at the discretion of the artist's management.

Tickets are handled via a “registration list”, rather than physical tickets. You will be checked in upon your arrival by the name you registered under. Please bring your printed confirmation reply as backup.

ALL TICKET SALES ARE FINAL, no refunds or exchanges. This is standard policy for most concert venues. In the rare case when a show has been cancelled and not rescheduled; a refund will be given.
