If you choose to have your tickets shipped or emailed to you in advance, you will still need to check in with us at the event to ensure you get to take advantage of all the perks that come with your package! If you choose to pick up your tickets at Will Call, please be sure to stop by the venue box office to retrieve your tickets prior to meeting us at VIP Check-in. As it gets closer to the event the ticket purchaser will receive an informational email including the exact time and location for VIP check-in. Please bring valid photo identification, and stay tuned for that email!
Q: When can I check in as a VIP guest?
A: While the exact time varies with each show, VIP check-in will generally occur about 2 hours before the main show starts. We will provide the specific times and check-in location for your show in our informational email about one week before the concert.

A: Parking is not included with this package, but parking may be available at the concert venue. Please refer to the venue’s website for more information regarding parking.
Q: Is there a secure space where I can leave my merchandise during the show?
A: Once you receive everything at check-in, you will have the opportunity to bring the items back to your car before entering the concert venue. We understand that it’s not always comfortable to carry around your merchandise during the show – it makes it harder to dance!
Q: When will the VIP festivities take place?
A: More specific times and locations will be announced in the informational email we will send to you about a week before the event.
Q: Can I get an autograph with Ben Folds during the meet & greet?
A: Included in the ‘Ask Me Almost Anything..About Music & My Book’ package is a personally signed copy of his soon to be released memoir!
Q: Can I bring my own camera to the event?
A: You can bring your camera phone and/or a standard point-and-shoot, but any cameras with detachable lenses will not be permitted. We will have a professional photographer available for the Meet & Greet photo so all personal cameras must be put away. We promise – you’ll have access to the high-quality photos right after the event!
Q: Can I upgrade to a VIP package if I already purchased a regular ticket?
A: Our ability to upgrade depends on a few different factors – availability, the venue, and date of contact – but please reach out to our guest services team at 888-805-8930 to inquire about any upgrade availability, and we’d be happy to discuss your options with you!
Q: What is a concert host?
A: The concert host is basically an extension of our Guest Services team at the event itself. He/she will be available for any questions or concerns that may arise during the VIP program.
Q: The people attending the concert with me may be arriving late. How would they get their tickets, merchandise, etc.?
A: The original purchaser will check in for all package materials, and he/she will then be able to distribute accordingly. Thus, we advise for your whole party to come to VIP check-in at the same time to make it quick and easy.
Q: Can I use my CID package for a contest/giveaway or to promote my website/product/event?
A: No. CID Entertainment’s trademarks, intellectual property, tickets and other offerings may NOT be used for advertising, promotions, auctions, contests, sweepstakes or any commercial purpose, without express written consent from CID and its partners. Please see our purchase policy for more detail.
Q: I purchased a package as a gift, but I will not be in attendance. How can my friend and family member pick up their ticket on my behalf?
A: You can do what is called an alternate pick-up! Simply provide the new guest with a photocopy of your photo ID, a photocopy of the credit card used during the purchase process, and a note authorizing the new guest to check in for your order. These items can be digital copies or photos on a cellphone. As long as the new guest has these items, in addition to the show ticket(s), he/she will be able to check-in for the order without you being present. Please note that the informational email regarding check-in (and any additional email correspondence from us) is sent to purchasers only, so you will need to forward any emails to the new guest.
Q: What if I change my mind and don’t want my package?
A: All packages are non-refundable. Please refer to the Purchase Policy for complete details.
Q: Am I going to have an amazing time?
