How does ticketing work?

All tickets are will-call, which is to say that there are no physical tickets- your name will be on a list at the door. Tickets are taken off sale on at 5:00 PM day-of-show and any remaining tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis at the door. You should receive an email confirmation of your ticket purchase. Please bring valid photo ID for proof of age and ticket purchase.

Advance tickets guarantee entry to the show.

They are general admission only and DO NOT guarantee seating.
For the best seats/position in the music room please arrive 60 minutes prior to show time to pick-up your tickets.
A ticket service charge will be added to the purchase price of each ticket.

All Tickets purchased through this site are NON-TRANSFERABLE

All Tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE

Advance tickets are only available through (until 5 pm day of show) and when noted. Lincoln Hall does not have a physical box office. Walk-up ticket purchases are only available at Lincoln Hall beginning one hour before listed show time unless the show is sold out.

All Shows are 21 and over, unless otherwise noted.

What is your policy on transferring tickets?

Unfortunately, the only way you can make a ticket transfer is to have your friend or friends show up at the doors on the night of the show with your email confirmation and 1 original/physical state issued form of your own ID. Some examples of acceptable forms of ID: your driver’s license, credit card, debit card, passport or student ID. No photocopies of the forms of ID will be accepted. They must be the original copies. If these guidelines cannot be followed, no transfer will be allowed.

Can I make dinner reservations?

The kitchen opens two hours before the listed show time. Reservations can be made by calling 773.525.2501 ext. 0 and leaving a voicemail with your name, phone number, the date being requested, and number of people in your party. A Lincoln Hall representative will return your call to confirm the details of your reservation. Reservations include a $25 minimum but guarantee concert balcony seating as long as the reservation time is at least 45 minutes before doors open for the show. You must plan on claiming your balcony seats before the first act begins their performance. Please note, reserving balcony seats is subject to change based on the show.
