It has been remarked that ticket prices at the performing arts centers and up-scale theaters where Martin appears can be a bit pricey for the bluegrass budget, so Steve has made 20 reduced price seats available for folks who can produce their IBMA membership card at the venue.
In his special way, Martin explains his reasoning…
“It’s expensive getting a bluegrass band from one place to another, especially with my demand for custom-made solid gold banjo strings from Peru. Still, we wanted to make sure that performers, music fans, and bluegrass up-and-comers got access to a fun night of hard core picking and fun.”
Dates with these special tickets, with IBMA pricing, are:
- May 23 – Burlington, VT – Flynn Center for the Performing Arts ($25 + local fees)
- May 25 – Lancaster, PA – American Music Theatre ($30 + local fees)
- May 26 – Brookville, NY- Tilles Center for the Performing Arts ($25 + local fees)
- June 1 – Staten Island, NY- St. George Theater ($20 + local fees)
- June 3 – Durham, NC – Durham PAC ($20 + local fees)
You’ll need to follow this special procedure to obtain these seats:
To redeem, please RSVP 48 hours in advance of the show to: Bluegrass@wmeentertainment.com
Tickets will be available for pick up day of show at the box office. Please have your IBMA membership card with you to redeem tickets. Tickets are priced at a reduced rate and are subject to local fees. Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis. A maximum of two (2) tickets may be reserved per IBMA member. Tickets are non-transferable. No exceptions please. Ticket locations are to be determined. No exchanges or refunds are allowed. Offer is not available for all concerts. Offer is not in conjunction and many not be combined with any other promotion offered by venue, promoter or third party. Offer is limited to one (1) concert and the date the RSVP is for. To make the offer available to as many people as possible, requests for additional shows will not be honored.
UPDATE 5/24 – Steve mentioned last night that this special IBMA pricing would be available for most of his shows this summer with the Rangers. Just follow the process above to see if you can get them for a show near you.
