I'm giving you the chance to use special offer code "FUNKTOUR" to get access to some of the best seats in the house before the general public can purchase this Friday!
I wrote what I think is a really helpful FAQ on how to buy tickets during the pre-sale. Please read it below.
In building out this tour, I wanted the chance to be able to offer my fans the best possible seats with the lowest ticketing fee pricing. I learned a lot about ticketing through the process and felt like I should put together a basic FAQ of getting tickets through the FUNK! Tour Pre-sale.
I've never done a tour like this before, so I wanted to make sure my fans have the most information to make the best decision about what shows to attend.
I'll apologize in advance for the wordiness, but more information is better than less information in this case. :)
How can I get tickets before the general public?
To offer fans direct access to great seats and do so at a lower ticket pricing, I decided to work with Applauze.
Applauze is a third party fan services company that has worked with a ton of major artists and events. I like their philosophy of working with promoters to keep pesky ticketing fees down, as well as the data and information I'm able to access to better know where fans want to see me play.
You can access all pre-sale links on BrianCulbertson.com/Tour which is being powered by Applauze. The code is "FUNKTOUR".
Will every show have a pre-sale?
There are some shows that are already on-sale, and there are some shows that simply won't have a pre-sale and will go on-sale on Friday.
My managers and agents work with promoters to get access to tickets that are sold on Applauze. So, for many dates the pre-sale links you're seeing will be sold on an Applauze page.
Some promoters don't allow me to sell tickets on Applauze, and in those cases, we've done our best to work with them to have a pre-sale code through their website. In the links below, I've noted which is which so you won't get confused.
Can I pick my own seats during the pre-sale?
In most cases, no. If you're buying tickets on Applauze (and many other ticketing sites), you won't be able to select seats. It will be "Best Seat Available" mode. The technology just has not come that far yet -- maybe that will be something they add in the future.
Are you offering some sort of VIP experience?
I'll be offering VIPs as an Add-On, including a meet-and-greet, photo, an exclusive show poster, and the performance of a song you won't hear in the set!
The experience is sold as an Add-On, which is exactly what it sounds like: you'll need to purchase a ticket and then purchase a VIP-Add for the show. It would be 2 separate transactions.
The following shows won't have VIP Add-Ons sold through Applauze:
1. In general, any "late" or "second show". If I'm playing two shows a night, there's just not enough time to turn the house and for me to put on a proper VIP Event. So for Denver, CO, Pittsburgh, PA, Boston, MA, or Minneapolis, MN, if you want VIP, buy the early show!
2. All Seattle, WA - Jazz Alley shows
3. Las Vegas, NV - Aliante Casino -- however, the casino has select VIP Offerings
4. Newport, CA - Hyatt Newporter
5. Temecula, CA - Thornton Winery
... and I think that's it! Check out all dates HERE, and click on the link to access tickets.
Thanks for your continued support of the Funk!
See you on the road,
