Information on Ticket on-sales at the Box Office:


In an effort to eliminate extended overnight camping and potential ticket scalping, as well as concern for public and personal safety, Global Spectrum, operators of Wells Fargo Arena will institute a random selection distribution system for tickets purchased at the Wells Fargo Arena Box Office for all future on-sale dates.

Box Office doors will open at 8 a.m. on Friday and numbered wristbands will be given away to each person over the age of 16 as they show up to the box office lobby. Wristbands are non-transferable as only those who receive the wristband will be allowed to use that wristband. At 9:30 a.m., if there are twenty or more guests waiting to purchase tickets at the Box Office, a lottery will be held to form the line. The numbers given out will be input into a computer that will randomly choose a number that will start the line. This random selection distribution system has been put in place to provide the fairest ticket sales process possible to all guests.

The person holding the number selected at 9:30 a.m. becomes the first person in line. The remaining guests will fall in line behind according to their number. For example, if number 5 is drawn, the person assigned number 5 becomes the first in line, followed by the persons assigned 6, 7, 8, and so forth. This continues until the highest number originally handed out is reached. After that, the person assigned number 1 will join the line, followed by the remaining people in the order of the numbers they are holding with the person having number 4 becoming the last in line.

Anyone who arrives after the numbers are distributed would join the line behind the last person holding a number.

All guests with wristbands must be present at the box office at 9:30 a.m. when the lottery number is called, or they will be placed at the end of the line regardless of their numbered spot in line. Only the wristband holder will be allowed to wait in the line at the point of sale.

If there are fewer than 20 guests at 9:30 a.m. the line will continue as first come first served.

There will be no overnight camping at Wells Fargo Arena. A number does not guarantee a ticket to the concert, merely a place in line. These numbers are only for the on sale at the Wells Fargo Arena Box Office and do not pertain to other authorized points of purchase.

Paperless Tickets:

Occasionally, artists and tours will elect to sell their tickets through Paperless Ticketing technology. This technology does not issue an actual ticket at the time of purchase. Instead, the purchaser arrives the night of the concert with the credit card they used to purchase and a Government issued I.D. (driver's license, passport). The credit card is scanned, and a receipt is printed with your seating location on it, gaining you access to the venue.

Cash, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover are all accepted methods of payment at the Iowa Events Center Ticket Office.

Additional Fees:

All tickets are subject to a facility fee. Tickets purchased online, charge-by-phone, or via Dahl's Foods locations are subject to additional service charges.
