Ticket Service Fees

There are two ways for you to buy your Reserved Seating tickets for the Pops.

1. The first is online on the Pops' website ( When you buy your tickets this way there are 2 small fees added onto each order, a per-ticket fee of $1.50 and a shipping and handling fee of $3.00 per order (whether you buy 2 or 200 tickets, shipping and handling is always just $3.00 per entire order.)

You save even more on Season Tickets because an entire set of 5 tickets for the season is treated as "one ticket" so there's only a $1.50 fee for each season set of 5!

Example - Two Season tickets
- $1.50 per set = $3.00
- $3.00 S&H per order= $3.00
Total online ticket fees = $6.00

2. The second way to buy tickets is by phone with the Pops' office. The only fee that applies is the shipping and handling fee of $3.00 per order.

Example - Two Season tickets
- $3.00 S&H per order= $3.00
Total phone ticket fees = $3.00

These fees do not go to the Pops but are charged by our very reasonable Ticket Service company. They're good folks. All tickets ordered will be mailed with driving & parking information directly from the ticket service agency.

That's it. Whether Online or by Phone we're delighted to offer Reserved Seating this season. Welcome!
