    - Be aware of pre-sale start times. Make sure you know when your pre-sale starts! Pre-sales for this show begins at 10am local time. (That is, if you're buying tickets for an event in New York, the pre-sale will begin at 10am EST, and if you're buying tickets for a California date the pre-sale will begin at 10am PST.) Ticket Availability is limited and it is strongly advised to purchase tickets as soon as pre-sale begins.

    - Create your Ticketmaster account ahead of time. To participate in pre-sales you must have an account set up with the Ticketmaster system. We highly recommend that you create your account before pre-sales begin. If you don't already have an account with Ticketmaster, click on the "pre-sale tickets" link below for the event you would like to attend to find more information on how to set up your account.
