Another sign of summer. Ravinia tickets to the general public go on sale tomorrow, Tuesday, April 28.
Gaga (tickets) are gone-gone while many other of Ravinia’s hottest tickets are going fast.
Why, you may ask, when ticket sales don’t open until tomorrow?
Ravinia, a not-for-profit, gives their financial supporters first shot at purchasing tickets–well over a month before non-donors get their shot.
But, not to worry, tickets are available for more than 100 summer concerts.
Set your alarm as it will pay to get up early tomorrow morning with ticket sales starting at 5 a.m. exclusively online.
Expect things to be busy, especially between the hours 5 a.m and 10 a.m., when Ravinia typically sells the equivalent of 10 United Centers.
Be forewarned that if you have a password from last year you will be asked to update it. You can do this in advance so that you’ll be all set when 5 a.m. rolls around.
Here’s the skinny on what’s available and what’s not:
- Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga (June 26 and 27) tickets are completely sold out (to donors).
- Reserved seats for the June 19 Alan Cumming and August 7 Harry Connick Jr. concerts are sold out—with limited lawn availability.
- There is limited availability for the June 25 Sheryl Crow concert, but lawn tickets will be available for sale tomorrow (April 28).
- Hurry, if you want tickets for Little Big Town, Santana, Chicago, 3 Doors Down and Collective Soul, O.A.R as they are expected to be going, going, gone soon.
- The Chicago Symphony Orchestra performing the big moments from Disney’s Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 along with the corresponding film sequences—are also be expected to be hot tickets.
You may still have a chance.
Although tickets may officially be “SOLD OUT,” Ravinia suggests that customers check back at Ravinia.org as concert dates approach for an opportunity to purchase any tickets to these popular shows that may have been returned.
