VIP packages are on sale now, and general admission ticket onsale date is TBA. "All net ticket proceeds will be donated to The Keswell School, an educational program for children and young adults with autism. Founded on the belief that children diagnosed with ASD can live full and productive lives as integrated members of their communities, The Keswell School provides educational, therapeutic and supportive services for children diagnosed with ASD and their families. This is a topic dear to Steve, as his son, John Henry, attends the school."
