-I heard there are a few seats left for tonight show ,
really i was under the impression that they were sold out a long time ago
Does ''be under the impression '' mean think or consider?
Today I review the difficult phrases on my notes, so there are more questions.
Thank you for your help.

    Think, or perhaps even more: believe.

    I was under the impression she was single:
    I thought she was single.
    I believed she was single.
