Guests who retrieved wristbands first will be allowed to enter the Grand/State Ballroom first. For your safety, once the Grand/State ballroom reaches max capacity/or all wristbands have been distributed, guests will be directed to the overflow ballroom (Red Lacquer Room). The overflow room will have the concert live on a TV screen for all guests to enjoy. If guests do not pick up a wristband prior to the event, they will not be allowed to enter the ballroom until all wrist banded guests have entered (depending on room occupancy). Please be considerate and follow the guidance of the Palmer House security personnel. Thank you.
