One of my favorite things about living in NYC is the amazing ability to see so many shows! With a wide array of venues, it's basically guaranteed that tours will stop here. ...except for the rare occasion when I had to go in to Jersey, lol.
I strongly suggest that if you ever plan on attending a show, that you buy a pair of noise filtering ear plugs. You can get a decent pair for under $20 on Amazon, and they will save you. They are also nifty if you have difficulty hearing people in crowded bars, as they isolate and filter, instead of just blocking like sleeping plugs. I put them in a small keychain pill case, and they've literally changed my life.
