Here's how the system will work:
Go to pearljam.com and log in to your Ten Club account. If you are not an up-to-date member you will not be eligible for Canadian tickets. You cannot purchase a membership and be eligible for tickets at this time. However, purchasing a membership now will allow you to purchase tickets to future dates AFTER the Canadian tour. Once we process ALL of the ticket orders, we will prioritize the seats according to your member number. Tickets will be available for you at the Ten Club ticket window prior to each show. You MUST show your photo I.D. to get your tickets.
Please note: besides this being the first time we've offered Ten Club tickets on-line, there are two more major changes in progress.
1. Tickets will not be distributed in "blocks". We listened to your feedback and took note of the problems with the block system. On this tour we will secure all of the tickets prior to the shows and allocate them ahead of time. So your tickets will be in an envelope with your name on it at the Ten Club ticket window before the show. So showing up early will not get you a better seat. This time we mean it.
2. We will use some of the seats in the "wings" for the Ten Club. There are really great seats that are located just off the floor, but very close to the sides of the stage. We haven't used these seats for Ten Club members on previous tours, but we think that those seats are far superior to those that are towards the back of the floor and we think that those seats should be filled with Ten Club members. It's not going to be an exact science, but we'll do our best to prioritize seats to make sure Ten Club members get the "best seats in the house."
For questions or information regarding your tickets please contact tickets@tenclub.net. For questions or concerns about your membership, please contact info@tenclub.net. Keep in mind that due to the inevitable high volume of requests for customer service, a response to your questions may not be immediate. We will answer your emails in the order they are received, so please avoid sending multiple messages. All sales are final. No refunds. All prices are in US dollars (USD) per PAIR of tickets. All dates subject to change.
