The ID check station(s) will be located near the main entrances. Present your ID for age verification to obtain your 21+ wristband.

Any guests found to be offering or purchasing alcoholic beverages for a minor will be removed from the event without a refund

Ticket Brokers, Re-Sellers & Counterfeit Tickets

Buyers Beware: Only purchase tickets from authorized outlets. Our official ticketing partner is See Tickets and will be the only tickets accepted at events. We strongly caution against purchasing tickets from third parties and individuals on Craigslist, Facebook and StubHub. It is the buyers responsibility to verify the validity of the tickets. When presented with counterfeit tickets at the gate, our only option is to deny entry. It pains us to do this, after you spent your hard earned money, but it’s our only course of action.

Reserved Seating (For shows with reserved ticket options)

Reserved seating is available in the lower level of the main amphitheatre. These are the best seats in the house. The middle seating section is bleacher seating and is part of our general admission area. Bleacher seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. When purchasing tickets, you will be able to pick your exact seat location for most shows. Please refer to the seating map when purchasing tickets. For shows that are entirely general admission seating, the front section (seated area) is available on a first come, first served basis.
