Would it be possible to post concert performance times for each artist or group? Some of us may need to plan our attendance to be sure we don’t miss our favorites!
Joy, We cannot give precise times for performers because their performance durations vary, and there will be MC announcements of varying lengths in between. You can check out the Concert schedule, find your favorite artists in each concert and figure 15-30 minutes per performer/presenter to get an estimated starting time for each.
