On-Sale Procedure/Random Number Distribution Policy
Target Center’s Box Office reserves the right to utilize a "Random Number Distribution" procedure for all concert on-sales.
The following is the "Random Number Distribution" policy for Target Center’s Box Office.
Beginning two hours prior to the scheduled on-sale time on the day of the on-sale, fans in line will receive a number. One hour prior to the scheduled on-sale time a random number will be drawn – that number will represent the first person in line for the on-sale.
The numbers will follow in numerical order after the first number is determined. Persons who arrive within one hour of the scheduled on-sale time, must line up at the end of the line of people with numbers. If a person is in line to get tickets, they must be able to stand in line alone and purchase the tickets on their own. During on-sales, the box office only accepts cash, MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express. If using a credit card you must show picture identification. The credit card must be in your name and you may not use someone else’s credit card.
You must be in line one hour prior to the scheduled on-sale time to receive a number. If you are not, you will not receive a number and will line up at the end of the line after the line of people with numbers has been formed.
450 people are issued a random number for an on-sale. The number drawn is 362 - this will represent the first person in line for the on-sale. Everyone else would line up in numerical order following number 362 - 363 would be second in line, 364 third, and so on. The person with the number 1 would line up after number 450.
Purpose of this "Random Number Distribution":
- Prevents lineups that may interfere with other events at Target Center
- Prevents overnight camping
- Helps to prevent scalping
- Ensures everyone a fair chance to be first in line
