The VICO Season Flex Pass allows you to purchase advance tickets without having to decide on the spot which concerts you wish to attend.|
Flex Pass holders are guaranteed seats at any of the concerts listed below. Upon purchase of your Flex Pass you will receive a set of 3 or 6 vouchers, which can be redeemed for tickets to any combination of 6 eligible concerts in our 2016/17 season.
For example, if you purchase the $70 Flex Pass, you will receive 3 vouchers, which you may redeem for 1 ticket each at 3 different concerts, or for 3 seats at one concert, or for 2 seats at 1 concert and 1 seat at another...and so on. Similarly, if you purchase the $120 Flex Pass, you will receive 6 vouchers to redeem as you wish.
Seats will be held for Flex Pass holders at each concert. You do not need to redeem your vouchers in advance; simply bring your voucher(s) to the concert(s) of your choice for guaranteed admission.
In addition to giving you the gift of flexibility, this Season Pass is a steal of a deal! Regular ticket prices for the concerts listed below are in the $20-$30 range ($10-$20 for students), so $70 for 3 is a significant discount...and $120 for 6 is even better.
Flex Passes make great gifts! When you purchase online, you will have the opportunity to specify if you intend to make a present of the Pass, and to give us the name(s) of the intended recipient(s). We can even send you a personalized certificate (fancier than the automatically-generated receipt) for you to pass on if you wish.
