The Lawlor Events Center and Legacy Hall ticket offices have joined together to form NevadaTickets, a single ticketing hub for School of the Arts, Wolf Pack Athletics and Lawlor Events Center events.
“NevadaTickets is a one-stop shop for tickets for University of Nevada, Reno events, whether athletics, concerts or performing arts. The creation of NevadaTickets is really about offering the northern Nevada community more convenience and choices,” said Ann Larson, director of Lawlor Events Center. “It will also give our fans the opportunity to buy tickets in real time with the same seats available whether you are buying online, at Lawlor Events Center or at retail outlets in the future.”
To better serve performing arts patrons and the Wolf Pack community, NevadaTickets has partnered with TicketsWest of Spokane, Wash., to handle all of its ticketing needs, marking the beginning of a uniform ticketing system.
Northern Nevadans will be happy to know about NevadaTickets’ website, MyNevadaTickets.com, through which tickets can be purchased online. No longer will they have to stand in lines and wait for operators to answer their ticket inquiries. There will be scanners in Lawlor Events Center and Mackay Stadium as well as a print-at-home option that will reduce “will call” lines.
The hours of operation for NevadaTickets at Lawlor Events Center are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The ticket office will also open at 10 a.m. on Saturdays only when an event goes on sale (closing at 2 p.m.) or on game days (closing for half time).
The Church Fine Arts box office will still be in operation and will open one hour prior to show time. Tickets purchased in-person at Lawlor or the one hour before show time at Church Fine Arts will not have a convenience fee.
