Honda Center General Admission Policy*

The following policy applies to events with a full general admission floor.

General admission ticket holders are not required to arrive early to obtain a numbered wristband. This policy is an option provided as courtesy to those who prefer to arrive early and wait for priority entry.

General Admission ticket holders can arrive at Honda Center to obtain sequentially numbered wristbands beginning at 10:00am the day of show at the North Entrance. Any guest arriving earlier than 10:00am will be asked to leave and return at 10am. Parking lot will open at 9:45am. Wristbands will be distributed until 3:30pm sharp.

Once guests receive their numbered wristband, they may leave the premises, but they must return to their sequential place in line at the North Entrance by 4:00pm. This time will be strictly enforced, guests are asked to plan accordingly.

If a numbered wristbanded guest arrives after 4:00pm, their number on their wristband is void and they will take their place at the end of the GA line.

Each guest must be in possession of a general admission ticket to obtain a wristband - only one wristband per guest will be distributed. Guests cannot reserve/pick-up wristbands for other guests. GA numbered wristbands are non-transferable. Loss, removal or tampering of the GA wristband will result in loss of place in the GA line.

Regardless of arrival time, guests who have a GA ticket must enter through the building’s north doors to obtain a floor access wristband.

Please note that VIP ticket holders may receive priority entry at the tour’s discretion.

Food and beverage items can only be consumed in the arena concourse.  Food and beverage items are not allowed onto the arena floor during GA floor shows.
