Go behind the scenes at two new touring venues: The Smart Financial Center at Sugar Land, Texas and the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, NY. Smart Financial Center, which opened in January 2017, is a brand-new 200,000 square foot live event venue with state-of-the-art technical systems and innovative moveable walls that vary the seating capacity from 3,000 to 6,400 seats. By contrast, Kings Theatre is a historic 1929 movie-palace that closed in the 1970s and was dormant for 37 years until it reopened in 2015 after an extensive restoration as a 3,200-seat roadhouse hosting a variety of entertainment events.
