Where are the door/show times for an event?
Show times are provided as a courtesy, but are subject to change. Please note that if all customers arrive ten minutes before the headliner, it will take longer than 10 minutes for them all to enter the building – that’s just physics. Come early! We have bars, snacks (including Lincoln Logs) and great opening acts.
Where is the theatre located?
How can I purchase tickets for the Lincoln Theatre?
Tickets for all Lincoln Theatre shows are sold online through Ticketmaster or in person at the Box Offices at Lincoln Theatre, The Anthem, 9:30 Club, and Merriweather Post Pavilion, and at 9:30 The Truck. Tickets are sometimes also available through fan club sites as presales or special VIP packages. Please be aware that tickets purchased through other, secondary market sources (i.e. “scalpers”), may or may not be legitimate. The Lincoln Theatre does not endorse using any secondary ticketing sources, and the Box Office can not resolve any issues involving them, such as lost or invalid tickets.
