Q:  Have an unanswered question?

A:  Call us at 615-782-4030.

Q:  I notice that some of your shows have a limit on how many tickets can be purchased "per household." Why is this and what constitutes a household?

A:  Many shows impose ticket limits as a way to allow as many people as possible to have equal access to seats. This is also done as a deterrent to third party vendors, i.e. scalpers, who may purchase large blocks of seats and then resell them online at an inflated cost. The term "household" refers to any shared information on one or more accounts. This includes, but may not be limited to matching names, mailing and billing addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and credit card numbers. Any households that purchase more than the allowed number of tickets may have their order(s) refunded without notice.
