Secondary Ticket Market Consumer Warning

The Casper Events Center uses bar code scanning for ticket admissions. As a result, patrons should be careful when purchasing tickets and should make sure to purchase tickets directly from Casper Events Center website, phone, or box office, otherwise, you may be purchasing a ticket that is invalid and could be denied admission.

If you purchase tickets from an unauthorized agent in the secondary market (scalper, ticket broker, eBay, Craigslist, etc.), you risk purchasing counterfeit or invalid tickets.

Please be advised that any other ticketing website is not an authorized seller of tickets for events at the Casper Events Center. Purchasing tickets outside of the Casper Events Center may result in fraudulent tickets, or tickets that cannot be used for entry. These tickets will not be exchanged and/or refunded by the Casper Events Center.

ALWAYS
Purchase your tickets from a reputable ticketing company. Many “secondary” ticket companies or “brokers” lead you to believe that they are the official site for purchasing tickets.

ALWAYS
Start at www.CasperEventsCenter.com and follow the links to purchase tickets to events taking place at the Casper Events Center.

What does it mean by a “ticket limit”?

Certain events may limit sales to a specified number of tickets for each event (also known as a “ticket limit”). This amount is included on the unique Event listing and is verified with every transaction. This policy is in effect to discourage unfair ticket buying practices. Disclaimer: Please adhere to published ticket limits. Persons or households who exceed the ticket limit may have any or all of their tickets cancelled without notice by Casper Events Center ticketing at its discretion. This includes orders associated with the same name, e-mail address, billing address, credit card number or other information.

What does a “General Admission” (GA) Ticket mean?

General Admission, or GA seating, is first come, first sit upon entering the arena. Some events offer General Admission Standing Room on the floor.

What are pre-sales and how can I be eligible?

Sign-up here for the Casper Events Center Cyber Club to be the first to know about new events, presales, and special offers. 

How far in advance do tickets go on sale?

Ticket on-sale dates are determined by the show promoter and vary depending upon the show.

How do I get backstage passes?

You cannot buy backstage passes. Backstage passes, when available, are controlled by promoters and Artists. Most backstage passes are won through media promotions or given out through artist fan-club privileges.

At times I hear a concert or event announced but the Casper Events Center does not have any info.

Occasionally, artist managers, artists, and booking agents will announce shows without having the appropriate contracts in-place with the CEC. As soon as events are firm (have signed a contract and provided all of the appropriate information to the CEC), we post the details on our website and our phone system and our staff is able to distribute information.

What are Print At Home Tickets?

Print at home is an electronic delivery method by which your tickets are e-mailed directly to you after your purchase. You will receive two e-mails after your purchase; the first will be your Print-at-Home e-mail with your tickets attached, the second will be your order confirmation (does not include tickets).

If I get my order confirmation email but never get my ticket email, what should I do?

Contact the Casper Events Center Box Office.

Please only use the Print at Home Re-issue feature if:

  • You have lost or misplaced your Print at Home tickets
  • It has been at least 45 minutes since you purchased Print at Home tickets or had Print at Home tickets transferred to you and you have not received them

Note: Each time you re-issue tickets the barcodes on the previously issued tickets are cancelled and will not be valid for entry. Only the barcodes on the latest re-issued tickets will be valid for entry.

I ordered my tickets 2 weeks ago and I still haven’t received them. What do I do now?

Haven’t received your tickets? Please contact the Casper Events Center Box Office at (307) 577-3030 or (800) 442-2256 for assistance.

How long into an event is the Box Office open?

The Box Office will normally stay open through intermission of the event. The Box Office can close at any time deemed by management after show start time.

Something has come up and I will not be able to attend the event. Can I be refunded?

All Sales are Final. The Casper Events Center will not issue a refund.

What if a concert is cancelled, can I be refunded then?

In the event of a cancellation, the paid ticket price* will be refunded. 
*Fees associated with ticket purchased will be retained. The fee is retained to cover the costs associated with the processing of the sale because, while the show cancelled, the venue still incurred the costs in selling the tickets.

Tickets purchased via credit card will automatically be credited within 48hrs of the show cancellation to the same card. Your credit should show up on your statement within 3 to 5 business days.

If tickets were purchased by cash or check, the tickets will need to be returned to the Box Office, where customers will need to present ID, and sign a form. A check will be mailed for this refund. There will be no cash refunds. Please call the Box Office at (307) 577-3030 or 800-442-2256 if a refund is needed by mail.
