Here are 5 tips for a stress free concert.

  1. Know Before You Go - Traffic will be significantly slowed that evening due to Super Bowl weekend events. Expect heavy traffic and delays. We recommend reading the city's "Know Before You Go" complete transportation guide here.
  2. Arrive Early - We strongly suggest that you plan to arrive early for this performance, leave extra time for traveling to Jones Hall and for parking. Expect delays entering and exiting the garage. Because of ramp closures, we recommend using entrance 1, 4 or 5. View a Parking Lot Map here
  3. Know Where to Park - Jones Hall area parking is also available at the Alley Theatre Center Garage, the high-rise garage located directly behind the Alley with entrances on Louisiana Street and Smith Street. Event parking in this garage is $10 (cash only). Theater District Garage Parking vouchers can also be used here.
  4. Or, skip parking - You may wish to avoid parking altogether by taking a taxi or ride-sharing service such as Uber or Lyft. We still recommend leaving early to allow plenty of travel time with this option!
  5. Dine Downtown - If you arrive early, there are many dining options downtown. You can view a list of downtown restaurants on Yelp here. If you plan to dine downtown before the concert, you may want to make a reservation now.
