*Note that we made the decision not to utilize Eventbrite ticket pre-sales for this concert. It was not used by many people, and the Eventbrite fees ended up costing those who purchased tickets through this method a few extra dollars per ticket If you prefer not to carry cash, we do have the capability to accept credit/debit cards at the concert, and there will be no extra fee for you. You will pay the regular ticket price. We apologize for any inconvenience that this change might cause you.
