PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY
THERE IS IMPORTANT INFORMATION BELOW & SOME INFORMATION HAS CHANGED SINCE THE DATES WERE FIRST ANNOUNCED/PLACED ON SALE.
For those of you lucky enough to secured tickets to the upcoming shows at The Iridium this week, there are a few important points that you all should know.
Please, share these online and pass them among fans who are attending:
First and foremost, the point of these three concerts are to create a television program. These shows are for FRONT & CENTER. A production crew will be filming Richie’s performances and editing them into an episode that will air on public television this fall (specific date TBA.) By entering the venue you are consenting to be filmed. Signs indicating this will be visibly posted in and around the venue.
As it’s a filming, we ask those attending to please be respectful and follow the direction of the IRIDIUM STAFF, the FRONT & CENTER crew, and the RICHIE SAMBORA TEAM on sight.
On TUESDAY, JULY 22nd, the DOORS open at 6:00pm
There will be full bar & restaurant service until 7:55pm… limited service once the show beings.
On WEDNESDAY, JULY 23rd, the DOORS open at 6:00pm for the EARLY SHOW.
There will be full bar & restaurant service until 7:55pm.
Food & Drink service will stop during the filming.
On WEDNESDAY, JULY 23d, the DOORS for the LATE SHOW are slated to open at 9:45PM (please be patient; late show attendees will be permitted to enter once the concert goers from the early show empty the venue.)
There will be very limited food/drink service for the late show as filming beings right away.
** If you’ve purchased a VIP TICKET Package which includes a t-shirt, signed poster, a premium seat and a MEET & GREET with RICHIE, you’ll receive an email with detailed instructions on how the MEET & GREET will work for each show directly from The Iridium.
