Bought what looked like aisle seats only to discover they were 12" from the wall. According to the box office, the online seating chart shows a hash mark for aisle seats. Guess what. No indication as to the seats were blocked in by a wall....More

I do not know what concierge seats are but I have been there 7 or 8 times and never had a bad seat. Even the balcony seats are good. Enjoy the performance.
