The safety of our artists, fans, and staff is always our top priority and planned for accordingly. We encourage those who are sick to stay home, and remind everyone coming to our venues to wash their hands regularly with soap and water and use hand sanitizer.
We continue to implement preventive measures at all Live Nation Venues in line with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other health agencies. We have taken the following steps to help ensure the health and safety of everyone who walks into our buildings:
Extra hand sanitizer dispensers at all bathroom areas, concessions stands, lobbies, offices and backstage
Additional signage and messaging in restrooms, backstage and offices to help reinforce basic health and hygiene practices
Eliminating hand pump condiment dispensers, providing individual packages instead
Granting fans ability to bring disposable wipes and hand sanitizers into all venues
Janitorial staff equipped with additional USDA and Food Code Compliant disinfectants and wipes for immediate cleaning response
Increased frequency of cleaning routines and disinfection of high touch areas
For updates and information about COVID-19, please visit the CDC’s website. We recognize this is a very fluid situation, and will work to update our ticket purchasers with new information as it becomes available to us.

What's a Ritz Raleigh Membership, and how do I obtain one?
The Ritz Raleigh is considered a private club by North Carolina alcohol laws. We're required to issue memberships to all guests attending a show here at the venue. When you purchase tickets to an upcoming show, you'll automatically be enrolled as a member of the venue. We'll send you a membership card via email prior to the show. If you have purchased multiple tickets in your order, one membership card will suffice for you and your guests. Please note that Ritz Raleigh memberships do not include any additional perks such as Fast Lane passes, Premium Seating or Stella Artois Lounge access, etc.
Where should I park?
There is parking available at the venue, as well as in a gravel lot located across the street from the venue. Both lots are just $8 to park, and can be paid with either cash or card.
What’s a Fast Lane Pass?
Fast Lane Passes are an upgrade that you can purchase in addition to your general admission ticket. They allow you to skip the general admission line and head straight to the doors when you arrive to the venue. We recommend arriving 20 to 30 minutes prior to scheduled doors to utilize your Fast Lane pass. These are available online when you're purchasing your tickets as an add on to your order. If you have already purchased your tickets online, you'll need to come to the box office in person to purchase; we cannot sell them over the phone or online. Please note that these are not concert tickets; you still need a general admission ticket to enter the venue. Fast Lane passes are not available for every show; you may contact us via email@example.com, social media, or by phone at 919.424.1400 to see if you can purchase Fast Lane for the show you’re attending.
My tickets are at Will Call; what do I need to bring to pick them up?
Please bring a valid, government issued photo ID with you to pick up your tickets. Valid ID’s include driver’s license, state identification card, military ID, and passports.
My friend has tickets at Will Call but can’t make it to the show. Can I pick up his tickets and use them?
To change the pick-up name for Will Call tickets, your friend needs to go back to his or her original point of purchase. If the tickets were purchased online through our website, Live Nation, or Ticketmaster, they need to contact Ticketmaster directly at 800.745.3000. If you are a radio contest winner, Premium Seating purchaser, or a guest of someone in the band, you’ll also need to reach out to your original contact and change your Will Call name that way. Please ensure that the name provided matches the name on the ID of whomever will be picking up the tickets.
I think I’m on the Guest List. What do I need to do?
If you are on a Guest List for either the house or the artist, your tickets will be available for pick up at the box office 30 minutes before doors. You will need to go through the general admission line and security checkpoint first before you can head up to the box office and pick up your tickets. Please bring a valid photo ID with you, and be sure to confirm with your contact prior to the show that your name is on the list to avoid any confusion at the box office.
The show I had tickets to has been cancelled. How do I get a refund?
If a show is cancelled, you will be refunded the entire amount, including service fees, via your point of purchase. If your tickets were purchased online via our website, Live Nation, or Ticketmaster, your credit card will be automatically refunded within 7-10 business days. If you purchased your ticket at the box office with either cash, you’ll need to come back to the box office to get your refund. Refunds are only issued if shows are cancelled; we do not issue refunds if you cannot make it to a show.
Can I get something to eat and drink at the show?
Absolutely! There are several bars inside the venue, both on the floor and the balcony, that serve beer, liquor, and wine, as well as non-alcoholic beverages such as water and soft drinks. We also serve fresh popcorn at the bar by the back hallway; just follow the scent! Our bars accept both cash and credit cards. If you are of age and plan on drinking at the show, please bring a valid government issued ID. Expired IDs are not accepted as a form of identification.
Is there seating available inside the venue?
The venue is general admission/standing room only. However, we do have Premium Seating available on our balcony as an upgrade to your ticket. This includes a cushioned bar stool, premium sightlines, Fast Lane passes, and access to our private Stella Artois Lounge upstairs. For inquiries on Premium Seating, please contact Cherry Mashue at 919.424.1352 or RitzPremiumSeats@livenation.com.
Do you have ADA seating available?
We do have handicapped accessible seating available on a raised platform inside the venue, with a ramp to allow wheelchair access. Seating on this platform is available on a first come, first served basis, and we recommend that guests who require ADA seating arrive early to the venue. Please let our ticket takers know you need ADA seating once you arrive, and a member of our team will escort you to your seat. If you have any questions, please contact Tim at 919.424.1400 or send us a message on socials (@ritzraleigh).
Where can I purchase Meet and Greet packages?
To purchase a Meet and Greet package, please check the artist’s website, or the ticketing page for the event. We do not sell Meet and Greet packages through our Premium Seating program, nor at our box office.
Small digital cameras are allowed; DSLR cameras with detachable lenses are not. GoPros and audio recording equipment are also not permitted into the venue.
Is there an age restriction at the venue?
Unless otherwise noted, all shows are all ages! You can check the age restriction for any show by visiting our website and clicking on “Event Details” located next to the show you want to attend. Minors are not required to have an adult present with them to attend an all ages show.
Can I smoke inside the venue?
According to North Carolina state law, there is no smoking or vaping allowed inside the venue. However, we do have a paved smoking patio located on the side of the building that you can smoke on during the show. The doors to access the patio are located on the back wall directly opposite from the stage; just look for the neon cigarette signs.
Once I enter the venue, can I leave and come back?
There is no re-entry into the venue once you come inside. Please make sure you have everything you need before you enter the venue; we cannot allow you to return to your car to grab a forgotten item.
Is there a dress code?
No shoes, no shirt, no service. We recommend dressing comfortably; as we are a general admission/standing room only venue, you’ll be on your feet for the majority of the show!
I’m coming to line up early so I can get a good spot at the show. Can I use the bathroom inside the venue?
Unfortunately, no; we cannot allow you to come into the venue to use the bathroom before doors open. There is a McDonald’s and a gas station located around the corner, and a Costco across the street (if you have a Costco membership).
Is camping/tailgating allowed in the parking lot?
There is no tailgating/camping permitted in the parking lot.
I’ve lost an item during the show; where can I go to find it?
If you notice you are missing an item during a show, you can check with any member of our staff to see if we have your item. Unless lost items are handed into venue staff during a show, we don’t locate them until well after the show ends. You can check out our CrowdFind page to view all lost and found items and submit a claim to come pick up your item.
