RANDOM TICKET LINE-UP - CONCERTS AND EVENTS
The random ticket draw system in place at the Scotiabank Saddledome begins one hour prior to a concert or show on-sale.

For example, if five numbers are distributed and #3 is drawn, the line-up formed would be 3 - 4 - 5 - 1 - 2.

Anyone arriving at the Scotiabank Saddledome Box Office after random ticket numbers are distributed can purchase their tickets after all random ticket draw numbers have been served.
