There is an eight-ticket limit per customer for general public sales. A convenience charge is added to each ticket price. No convenience charge will be assessed at the Carrier Dome Box Office.
All tickets to the general public are priced at $39.50 (the ticket price includes the $.75 City of Syracuse surcharge). All dates, acts and ticket prices are subject to change without notice.
All Central New York area Ticketmaster outlets will utilize the Ticketmaster Random Number Distribution system for the ticket lines at their outlets on Saturday, Dec. 10. Persons wishing to purchase tickets at any of the Central New York-area Ticketmaster outlets should show up at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10. No one will be permitted to camp out at any Ticketmaster outlet. Everyone in line at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10, has an equal chance of being first in line at whatever outlet at which they are present.
Wristbands will be distributed for the Carrier Dome Box Office ticket sale line beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 8, at Gate A.
For purchasing tickets at the Carrier Dome only, wristbands will be distributed at Gate A of the Carrier Dome starting at 5:30-9 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 8; and 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 9 or until 1,000 wristbands have been distributed. The wristband does not guarantee a ticket, only a place in line. To obtain a wristband, you must be 12 or older and able to be in line unaccompanied. There is no need to line up at gate A in advance, as everyone will have an equal chance to be first in line regardless of when they receive the wristband. Each person receiving a wristband will be given more detailed instructions concerning the reporting time, where to park and the “first in line” lottery process.
On Saturday morning, 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. The line will continue to be formed behind the person randomly chosen to be first based upon numeric sequence of wristbands.
Everyone is encouraged to get a wristband, but if that is not possible, persons without wristbands may line up behind those with wristbands-first come, first served.
