Obstructed Seating at Radio City Music Hall

Hello! I bought tickets to see Dave Chappelle at Radio City next week and then noticed after the fact that they say OBSTRUCTED VIEWS on them.

These are orchestra seats in rows R & S. I've googled and see that they are behind a sound board. How serious is the obstruction for this type of show? It's just a guy doing comedy, rather than something visual with sets and dancing, et cetera, so I'm hoping it won't be a big deal.

This is for a work event with a lot of people in attendance and I did buy the insurance, so if it's bad I'd like to get them refunded and sit somewhere else.

If you go here, click on the seating chart to enlarge it, and go to Orchestra 4, there's a seat photo from row R, showing exactly what the view behind the sound board is.

I recently had "obstructed view" seats at the Beacon where I was several rows behind the sound board and it was a complete non-issue.

For future mefites and googlers, I sat in these seats and we didn't notice the sound board at all. I think it would only be a concern if you were in the row immediately behind he board.
