Went to see Queen (replica band). Since I am reviewing the venue and not the band ... let me focus on it. Great venue to take family. The sound could be a bit louder to match the music.

Viewed this auditorium during a stroll through Hermann Park on a hot Autumn afternoon. Sadly there was no concert on here during our brief Houston stay as we would have loved to visit.

This outdoors free event is a must-do if you find yourself in Houston and want to be a Houstonian for the night. Don’t get there early and look for the pre-set up chairs, get there on time and take your blankets and bug spray or...More
