SAP Center at San Jose U2 - General Admission Line Policy May 18th and 19th, 2015 (Subject to Change)

SAP Center at San Jose welcomes guests with General Admission (GA) paperless tickets to arrive and form the line in advance of typical arrival times for events. All guests are required to abide by the provisions within the following policy.

Ticket holders found in violation of the following policy may be asked to surrender their paperless tickets and leave SAP Center property.


 The GA line will be formed along the Santa Clara Street wall of SAP Center as indicated by signs saying “General Admission Entrance.”

The GA line will enter SAP Center through “Entrance B” (the doors between the Grill Restaurant and the Sharks Store).

 GA paperless ticket holders may begin lining up at 8:00am on the date of show.

 Entering the GA line indicates the guest’s agreement to abide by all SAP Center policies and procedures (the same as while inside the building).

 Upon arrival, each guest who indicates he or she has GA floor seating will have a sequentially numbered wristband put on his or her right wrist. Wristbands will be distributed at 9:00am (subject to change).

 Since the seating area on the floor of the arena has been issued via paperless tickets, guests will not need to have a ticket in their possession to wait in line. However, all guests in a party, meaning all those attending with the guest that purchased the paperless tickets, must be present at the same time to receive the numbered wristbands.

 The order of entrance into the building will be based on the number on the guest’s wristband. Wristbands will be provided on a first come, first served basis. Once a GA ticket holder has their wristband, they may remain in line or leave the area, but must return to their sequential place in line by 5:00pm.

 GA ticket holders who have paid for parking in one of the SAP Center parking lots and elect to leave after receiving their wristband will have their money refunded as they leave the parking lot. There are no in-n-out privileges in the SAP Center managed parking lots after 3:00pm.

 Other ticket holders must remain outside of the blockaders that separate the GA line.

 Guests are not permitted to “hold” a place in line for other guests who are arriving later.

 The wristband must remain on the guest’s right wrist while in line. Loss or removal of the wristband will require the guest to obtain another wristband and take their sequential place in line. Any guest found with a tampered wristband will have his or her wristband confiscated and will lose their place in line.

 GA ticket holders will be admitted in sequential order once doors are opened, scheduled for 6:00pm.

 Guests with paperless tickets must have in their possession the credit card used to purchase the tickets to enter. When receiving paperless tickets at the entrance, all guests in the party must be present and immediately enter at the same time.

 Guests are permitted to have a reasonable amount of food and non-alcoholic beverages while in line. No bottles (including water bottles), cans or food are allowed into the building.  Please be respectful of other guests in line - no running, pushing or line jumping; no alcohol, drugs or glass containers; no horseplay or unsafe behavior; no profanity; no tailgating, open flames or barbeques; no selling of tickets, wristbands, concessions or merchandise; no animals (except service animals); no smoking in line.

 Prohibited Items: The following items are prohibited from entering the building: all outside food and beverages, weapons of any kind, pepper spray/mace, alcohol, cameras with detachable lenses, video recording equipment, audio recording equipment, laser pointers, fireworks, iPads, GoPros, selfie-sticks, glow sticks, glass bottles, plastic bottles, or cans.


Any person with these items found within the venue during tonight’s event may be subject to ejection from the venue without refund. Thanks – Have a Great Time!!

Thanks much for this info.  This seems to be saying you can show up and get a wristband and leave and come back?  I'm not sure I have much faith in people actually getting back into the correct spots in line if this is the case.  I did not experience that working very well on the 360 tour.  In Nashville they numbered folks' hands and wouldn't let people stand in line due to the extreme heat.  Then was kind of a joke trying to get the line actually together before the gates opened.  I do understand that there should be way less in GA for this tour than at the stadiums on 360.

San Jose always ran a stellar GA line in the past.  They can't do much about line crashers before wristbands happen, even if the line runs its own sign-in sheet and writes numbers on hands.  They usually enforce not lining up on property before 8am.  I think people went across the street, either along the eastside park or by the southside parking area.
