Special nights are not just about the shows and performers, special nights are personal and unique.

Here are just some of the themes that we feel could enrich the project immensely:

The first concert you attended, or maybe a first date

Something unique that happened on stage

A song or performance that moved you

A memory from the performing artist

The journey to be there
