Do young children/babies need tickets to the show?
Everyone, regardless of age, needs a ticket to enter the show. Please note that anyone under 21 years old pays a $2.00 cash minor surcharge at the door upon entry and must remain in the designated “under 21” section of the main floor. Those over 21 are welcome anywhere inside the venue, but are not able to bring beverages from the “over 21” section into the “under 21” section.

Can I call The Pageant Box Office to purchase tickets?
No, phone orders are not available. If you would like assistance in purchasing tickets online, please contact Ticketmaster Customer Service at 1.800.653.8000.
What does it mean to have a “general admission” or “GA” ticket?
A limited number of tables, chairs, and stools are available for general admission (or GA) tickets. Seating is on a first come, first served basis. GA tickets may require you to stand if all seats are taken. Please remember that seat saving is strictly prohibited. Please respect your fellow patrons by adhering to this policy.
Why does my General Admission ticket have a seat number?
You may have noticed that your GA ticket has numbers appearing in the “row” and “seating” lines of the ticket. These numbers are used for Ticketmaster’s tracking purposes and do not represent a specific seat. General Admission tickets will show “GA-LTD SEATING” or “GA” on the ticket.
Why is The Pageant’s balcony only open for certain shows?
The Pageant’s balcony is open on a show-by-show basis depending on a variety of factors. Typically, this information is known as soon as the tickets go on sale. However, it is possible for the balcony to initially be closed and opened later. In this case, the balcony will most likely be GA (21+) for GA shows and reserved (all ages) for reserved shows.
Please see the Calendar page to determine if the balcony is open or closed for the specific show of interest.
What does “sold out” mean?
When a show is sold out, it means tickets are no longer available. If you haven’t already purchased a ticket, you will not be able to attend the show. Unlike some venues, we do not hold back tickets for release at the last minute. However, there are occasions when artists release their unused tickets, at which time, they will become available for sale to the public.
If you are still interested in attending, we recommend you check Ticketmaster’s website for any TM+ resale tickets. Please note that this is the only way to purchase verified resale tickets.
How did the show/balcony sell out in 10 seconds after it went on sale?!?
Contrary to popular belief, shows do not sell out in 10 seconds. Or 5 minutes. Or even 10 minutes. So why do you sometimes receive the “tickets not available at this time” message immediately when a show goes on sale? In this case, there are more people attempting to purchase tickets than tickets available. Not everyone will get through immediately and sometimes it comes down to the click of the mouse.
Once a buyer selects their tickets, they have 5 minutes to purchase or the tickets will be released back into the system. This means if you keep trying, there is a chance you could still purchase tickets. We will announce when the show is sold out – keep trying until then!
For shows with a reserved balcony, it is not uncommon to have these seats sell out very quickly (under 5 minutes sometimes). The demand for these seats is often higher than the seats available.
How does will call ticketing work?
For those who purchase tickets in advance and choose will call delivery, tickets can be picked up on the day of the show at the Box Office, starting two hours prior to the scheduled door time. You must present a valid photo ID and the credit card used to purchase your tickets in order to pick them up.
Will call tickets must be picked up by the person who purchased the tickets. The Pageant and Delmar Hall cannot give tickets to third parties, no exceptions. If you would like to change the name of your will call order, please call Ticketmaster at 1.800.653.8000 and request a will call name change or log-in to your Ticketmaster account and click “transfer tickets”. Any name changes done via the phone system must be done 24 hours prior to the show.
What happens if I don’t have my ticket with me when I arrive for the show?
Everyone must have a valid ticket to enter The Pageant & Delmar Hall (this includes young children and babies). If you purchased your ticket online through Ticketmaster, there is a chance we can find your order in the system. Please see the Box Office for assistance.
If your ticket was purchased at a Ticketmaster outlet or our locations, there is no record which ties the purchase to you personally. If you are unable to retrieve your original ticket, you will need to purchase another one if available. Please be aware that if the event is sold out, you will not be able to purchase additional tickets.
I heard that a show was cancelled/rescheduled – is this true?! If so, how do I obtain a refund?
Unfortunately, shows do occasionally cancel or reschedule. Make sure you hear this information from us directly! When a show cancels or is rescheduled, information is updated across our website, Facebook, and Twitter. Be sure to follow us for the most up to date information.
Refunds are only given when the headlining act cancels the show. Ticket exchanges are prohibited, no exceptions. If you are unable to attend the show and would like to resell your ticket, please consider Ticketmaster’s TM+ Program when available. Visit Ticketmaster’s website for more details.
When a show has been cancelled, please return to your point of purchase to request and obtain a refund. If you purchased online with Ticketmaster, your refund will be processed automatically. If you purchased at our Box Office using a credit card, please remember to bring the credit card used along with a valid photo ID. All refunds are given in the same manner they were purchased.
For rescheduled shows, tickets for the original date are still valid for entry on the new show date. If you are unable to attend the new date, please return to your point of purchase to request and obtain a refund.
What is a valid form of ID?
All patrons wishing to enter 21 + sections must have a valid form of photo identification. In addition, all patrons must have a valid form of photo identification to enter events with age restrictions. We will deny entry to anyone presenting fraudulent identification. No refunds.

What is the “minor surcharge”?
The minor surcharge is a $2.00 cash fee collected at the door from patrons who are under the age of 21. Since we incur additional expenses presenting all ages events, this fee helps us offset these costs and continue to provide entertainment for all.
Please see the Calendar page to determine if a minor surcharge applies to a specific show of interest.
Are there places to sit at The Pageant?
Seating arrangements vary on a show-by-show basis. To determine the seating arrangement for a specific show of interest please visit our Calendar page or call us at 314.726.6161.
What should I do if I require special accommodations?
Please refer to our Special Accommodations Policy. If you need additional assistance, please contact us at 314.726.6161 prior to the day of the event. Please give us as much advance notice as possible so we have time to respond to your request.
What time should I arrive to get a good place to see the show?
The Pageant is designed so that everyone inside the venue can view the stage. Seating arrangements vary on a show-by-show basis. For a sold out show, it’s not uncommon for lines to form early in the day. Other times, you could arrive at show time and still find a preferred spot. Since finding a “good place” is based on personal preference, we recommend that you arrive as early as you’re comfortable waiting.
Keep in mind – seat saving is strictly prohibited. Please be respectful of your fellow patrons by adhering to this policy.

Are debit/credit cards accepted? What about for band merchandise?
Credit and debit cards are gladly accepted anywhere at The Pageant, Delmar Hall, The Halo Bar and Suite 100 provided a matching valid photo ID is presented. Whether or not band merchandise accepts debit or credit cards depends on the individual artist. ATM machines are located inside The Pageant, Delmar Hall, The Halo Bar, Suite 100 and the Box Offices for your convenience.
I used my debit/credit card at the bar. Why is my transaction reflecting an incorrect amount?
When you use a debit or credit card to start a tab at the bar, our system initially preauthorizes $25.00 to verify funds are available. The system continues to preauthorize funds as your tab accumulates. Once the tab is closed, we release the pre-authorizations and process the transaction for the accurate amount. However, it can take your bank a few business days to process the release of these pre-authorizations which is why it may look as if the incorrect amount was charged to your account. If your account doesn’t clear up in a few business days, please call us at 314.726.6161.
What if I forget to close my tab?
All open tabs that are left at the bar after closing are charged to the card on file including a gratuity of 20%.
I lost something at a show. Do you have it?
All lost and found items are held for fourteen days during which you can retrieve them at Suite 100 with a matching description and/or valid photo identification. Please call us at 314.726.6161 the following day after 10am to inquire about the item.
