This sounds great. Are there any restrictions?

To confirm your attendance at each concert, we will send a confirmation email two weeks before the date of the concert. You must confirm your reservation to attend the concert. Due to limited seating, if you fail to confirm a reservation, we will assume that you cannot attend (it's cool, plans change) and release your ticket(s) to ensure that others can enjoy the concert. If you reserve within two weeks of the concert, no confirmation is necessary. Thank you for your cooperation!

Also, we're sorry, but you can't transfer your tickets or your pass to your friends. However, you can share news about this great deal with your friends so that they can come with you.

If you have any questions, simply call our box office (215-569-8080) or e-mail Michelle Shirk at [email protected].
