    Head to Galaxy Global Eatery on Irving place between 15th and 16th to grab a bite before (or after) the show. The food is diverse and delicious and it's affordable! – Team Live Nation

    If you want to party before or after the show, head to 119, one of the best NYC Dive bars. Great tunes, good beer on tap, a pool table. A bar with a very NYC Dive disposition, but TONS of personality Read more

    Go to Irving plaza if you want to be packed in for your favorite act. The acoustics are good and you can see the stage from pretty much anywhere you stand. But be wary, it gets incredibly hot! Read more

    Concerts get crunched. VIP tickets are worth the extra $$ because they come with a free drink and view is muuuuuch better. More room to bust move. 💃

    If you can get here when doors open try to get to the balcony. Great view and you'll be sure to not lose any clothes when a mosh pit opens up next to you on the main floor.
