Freezing temperatures lead UI to discourage overnight ticket lines

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Tickets to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters' April 26 performance will go on sale at the University of Iowa Memorial Union Box Office at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 29, but due to expected frigid temperatures, the Office of Student Life is advising ticket seekers not to form overnight lines.

Doors to the IMU will open at 7 a.m. Saturday, but tickets will not go on sale until 10 a.m. Tickets for the April 26 concert at Carver Hawkeye Arena are $30 and will also be available at Ticketmaster outlets found at most area music stores and Hy-Vee Food Stores. Tickets can also be purchased by phone through the IMU Box Office 319-335-3041 or toll-free 1-800-346-4401 or directly from Ticketmaster at 319-363-1888.
