Keep in mind, when purchasing your event ticket, you will be allowed to purchase one (1) ticket per person, per event date, per transaction. This is due to the merchandise offerings that will be released along with the event, which requires each ticketed guest to have their own unique registration ID.

A limited amount of tickets for both event nights will be available starting Thursday, May 23 at 10 a.m. Pacific. You can learn more about purchasing your ticket here.
