Do I need a ticket?

Yes! The show is ticketed; however, students can begin to pick up free tickets at the Athletic Ticket Office (located on Faulkinberry at Gate 1-A of the football stadium) on March 21st. The ticket office will be open 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and is closed on weekends. All tickets must be picked up between these hours. Student advanced tickets will continue through date April 8th, when tickets will also open to faculty/staff/alumni. Students will be able pick up one extra guest ticket per MyMT Event Pass.

Beginning April 8th, any remaining tickets will open to faculty, staff, and alumni, while still remaining available for students. There is no guarantee tickets will be available by this point for faculty, staff, and alumni, as students have first priority. Faculty/staff will be required to show a valid MyMT Event Pass, and Alumni will need to contact MT Alumni in order to request a time to pick up ticket from their office. Alumni must pick up a ticket by April 17th; no alumni tickets will be available the day of the show. A ticket guarantees you entry to the show, but it does not guarantee any specific seating. This event is general admission; arrive early for the best seat/floor space.

The Signature Events concert is presented for and funded by MTSU students.  While one guest is permitted when escorted by a MTSU student, the concert is intended for mature audiences and may not be suitable for non-college aged students. 


In general, any MTSU student/faculty/staff member will need to present their MyMT Event Pass to pick up an advanced ticket, and will be required to show their MTSU ID with their ticket at the show.

ALL MTSU STUDENT/FACULTY/STAFF WILL BE REQUIRED TO SHOW THEIR UNIVERSITY ID TO ENTER THE SHOW. DO NOT FORGET YOUR ID! Alumni tickets will indicate that they are alumni tickets separate from the MTSU student/faculty/staff allotment. Tickets are not available to the general public and should not be sold by any of the above parties.

Any student/faculty/staff attempting to bring more than 1 guest with their ID are subject to have their ticket, and their guests' tickets, revoked and be barred from entering.

Floor spots are limited for the show, so arrive early! Staff reserves the right to restrict the general admission floor to MTSU Students Only.

Are guests allowed?

Each patron will be allowed to get one (1) extra guest ticket. Students may get their ticket plus guest beginning date March 21st. You must bring your MyMT Event Pass to the Athletic Ticket Office to pick-up a guest ticket; guests will not be able to get their own. This policy will be strictly enforced, and we apologize for any inconvenience it may cause for students wishing to bring guests. However, we want to make sure that every student has an opportunity to attend, and every guest allowed reduces student capacity.
