    The show was great, however the seats were to boxed in and eventually caused me to feel claustrophobic.

    My sole reason for going to the Apollo was to see K. Michelle. She or BET canceled her performance. So, I had to settle for Asap Rockey. I am not a fan of his, but Kiki Sheard was cool!

    If you're way scared of heights don't book upper mezz section as the incline is scary steep and uncomfortable. Oh and there are about 10,000 steps up manually. In other not for the faint of heart.
