Default The Box 10/18

Anyone know what time doors open? Show starts? For the Saturday night Box show?

What time is everyone getting there?

I'll be in front of the place at four pm. I hate general admission shows.

I think the site said doors at 7, show at 8. Now that I look back at the site and email, information is no longer there. You could try asking the venue. I'm definitely going to try to arrive mid-afternoon (four sounds good!), though at least it's a small enough place that every view should be decent.

I had read the same thing and when trying to look for the info today I didn't seem to see it anywhere. for a moment I thought I was imagining things due to the excitement haha. i'm glad I wasn't

I emailed Damienrice.com to ask the same question and received this reply this morning:

Doors are at 7:30 pm, but I believe they will be opened earlier than that. We are just waiting for that to be confirmed. The show starts at 8:00 pm sharp on the 18th, so you'll want to make sure you arrive at doors.

Regards,

I just got a new confirmation for my ticket that says doors are at 7. Tickets are available to pick up from the box office at 6:30 pm. No transfers. Anyone looking for a ticket will have to be someone's +1, in case anyone's still looking.

Ok so roll call for this show and Warsaw before it. Who wants a meet-up? Haven't signed in for years, but got tickets for both and am ready to be up close to Damien again. I am flying up from Atlanta for this... anyone else wanna grab a drink and be in line early?

Flying from Charlotte. I'm down for grabbing some lunch and whatnot nearby and hopping in line. Want to coordinate something?

Awesome! Are you guys flying in on Friday or Saturday? I'm flying in on Friday for Warsaw. We should all meet up. (I'm bad at organizing things so any suggestions would be awesome). Also my 2nd time in New York so I'm not well seasoned on where or what to do

we are flying friday morning. I'll be at Friday's show too
I might be at Warsaw early since i'll have to pick up my ticket at Will Call. I've never been to Brooklyn before so no idea about where to go.

I get in to LaGuardia around 730. Not sure what I'm doing between that time and when I hop in line. If you guys are in Brooklyn for some lunch or whatnot..shoot me a PM and we can try and schedule something.

Not sure what time we'll be in line, but if you see 2 very short, blondes please feel free to say hello! My name is Elizabeth and my daughter is Sarah. Not gonna lie, we haven't been this excited for a concert in a VERY long time (been fans for a while and have had to settle for scouring youtube to "see" live Damien performances)! Cannot believe we finally have the opportunity to see him in person!

Honestly, I don't think you're going to be able to make this trade. The Saturday ticket is under your name, and they'll only give the ticket to you. Thursday tickets are going to be the same deal, and I don't think anyone could buy more than two tickets at once, so chances are nobody will have two spares. I'd just be very, very careful if anyone happens to offer to take you up on the trade so you aren't losing your tickets for fakes.

Im looking to buy tickets to the box show on the 18th, even if it's just 1 and I fly solo. I know it's a long shot but if you have one or more to sell please message me!

the LA secret gig was organised by Vector, that´s all I know... so if there´s one, should be run by them...

but if he does a radio show, no clue, cannot remember if he´s been in radio shows in NY in the past?

Can't believe the show is only a few days away! So excited! I am traveling by bus from mass, just moved there from California, and have never been to NY. I have no idea what to expect, little nervous! I will be getting into the city by 2 then plan to head over to the venue to search for food and a drink. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Just read up on the Box. It's seems a bit risque after hours and very trendy! I still need a ticket for Sat, if any magnanimous Eskimo needs a +1! These Box shows are like Fort Knox! Please please PM me if you have an extra!

Quick question...not sure if anybody could help though...I have one ticket to the box on the 18th. I bought the ticket using my friend's card but put the pick up name as my own....

I'll be able to get my ticket, right?

the email they sent says that that showing the credit card you used is for secondary verification, so I guess as long as the ticket is under your name and you show your id you might ok; also, print out the purchase confirmation too

They ask for your name, check their list and your ID, and stamp your hand. They didn't check credit cards tonight. They were pretty nice if your guest wasn't with you. They noted the name on their list and then let them in, even if they weren't with you and you were already inside.

I'm sorry to be greedy because I'm already going to 2 shows in a row. If anyone's plans fall through and need a guest, please please PM me.
