BACKSTAGE
At the Lincoln
The Backstage at the Lincoln concert series offers you the extraordinary opportunity to be seated on stage for a performance with your favorite local artist. Set against the hand-painted grandeur of the Lincoln’s Egyptian Revival-style motif, enjoy an exceptionally intimate concert from a perspective normally seen only by the artists themselves.
