Do I need ID to enter the Event?

In compliance with VA laws anyone 21 and older who plans on drinking alcohol will have to show a valid, non-expired, government issued photo ID, no matter how old you think you may look. Anyone without proper ID, regardless of age, will be treated as under 21 and not allowed to buy, hold or drink alcohol. This policy is strictly enforced and any violation will result in immediate ejection from the event.

Can I bring children to the concert?

Yes. Children are welcome at concert events. However, our seating is limited. EVERYONE must purchase a ticket.
