Every event we go to at the Midland is fantastic. It is just large enough to attract interesting entertainers, but small enough to feel personalized. Have seen musical acts and also authors on book tours here and the venue is perfect for both.

which seats would be the best for Max and Val tour? I looked at the seating chart, but it doesn't really show me what i want to know, it's confusing, it has balcony seats being the same price or higher than what the floor might be, is there a way of showing me where the best seats are for this event?
