I think it's a theater like the Taft in Cincinnati.

Great venue. It is an old movie theater from the 20's/30's. It is all seats and I guess you can call it stadium seating. The seat behind you is raised up higher than the one in front but it isn't as dramatic as a new movie theater. I just hope I'm not in front of you. (I'm 6'7")
I've seen Yes there 4 times. It is alot like Taft.

Hi, Tim, and hello to everyone. I'm sorry for not posting since before the July 4, 2010 show in Blue Ash - life has kept me very busy lately.
The Palace in Louisville is very similar to the Taft theater or to Music Hall, here in Cincinnati. The Palace is a beautiful old theater, that has been renovated and really looks nice. It has full seating on the floor and in the balcony.
Here's a link to a visual tour of the place: http://www.louisvillepalace.com/tours/stage.htm
I was privileged to see Yes play at the Palace during the OYE tour - thanks to the NFTE/Yesworld ticket lottery, my friend Steve and I had *front-row* seats (literally smack-dab up against the stage), right in front of Mr. Chris Squire! Wow, his monitor speakers are loud! I held my breath when Jon took a deep breath and started singing the opening chant of TRSOG - I never expected to hear that song in-person. What a show!
I also got to see Robert Plant and Alison Krauss perform their second duo show there, promoting the Raising Sand album. It was supposed to be the first show of the tour, but an additional show at the Palace was added for the day before, due to strong ticket sales/interest. Lots of celebs/VIPs were at the second show (since it was supposed to be the first show) - David Fricke from Rolling Stone was definitely there. That was a great performance.
I am toying with the idea of seeing the "guys" at the Palace - since it is a Saturday night. I am taking graduate classes at University of Cincinnati now. March 26 is just before spring quarter classes start...hmmm...sounds like a good idea!
Everyone, please take care. Happy Yessing!

The Louisville Palace is a beautiful old theatre restored. I have seen several concerts there and pretty much, there is really not a bad seat, just some are closer than others. The music sounds great in there too, and it feels much more up close and personal with the artists. I am hoping to be there for YES, but I am really hoping for a pre-sale password so I can get a better seat. See you all there!

Gonna be a great concert! Seeing Yes at the Taft in Cincinnati was one of the more unique Yes concert experiences I've ever had. I can't wait to see them in that kind of setting again.
