We had the pleasure of seeing a concert here on our trip. The views were amazing. Such a cool backdrop for good music! And there is not a bad seat in the house. Even in the balcony you felt close to the performance.

Going to the SFO is a total, sensory experience unlike any other. The setting alone is breath taking, but the caliber of the production are second to none.
