All Central New York area Ticketmaster outlets will utilize the Ticketmaster Random Number Distribution system for the ticket lines at their outlets on Feb. 3. Persons wishing to purchase tickets at any of the Central New York Ticketmaster outlets should show up at 9 a.m. on Feb. 3. No one will be permitted to camp out at any Ticketmaster outlet. Everyone in line at 9 a.m. has an equal chance of being first in line.
Distribution of wristbands for the Carrier Dome Box Office ticket sale line will begin on Jan. 31. Wristbands will be distributed at Gate A from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Jan. 31; 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 1; and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 2, or until 1,000 wristbands have been distributed. The wristband does not guarantee a ticket, only a place in line. Persons seeking to obtain a wristband must be 12 or older and able to be in line unaccompanied. Everyone will have an equal chance to be first in line regardless of when they receive a wristband. Each person receiving a wristband will receive more detailed instructions concerning when to report to the Carrier Dome on Feb. 3, where to park and the “first in line” lottery process.
On Feb. 3, a drawing will be conducted from among all wristband wearers to determine who will be first in line for the ticket sale at the Dome Box Office. Everyone has an equal chance to be first in line or last in line. The line will continue to be formed behind the person randomly chosen to be first based upon the numeric sequence of wristbands. Persons without wristbands may line up behind those with wristbands and purchase tickets on a first-come, first-served basis.
