Important Information for Patrons

Season 2023 Information

Venue capacity and COVID

Capacity restrictions in our venues may mean that we may have fewer tickets available than in previous years, so we encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment!

Keeping us all safe: Selby & Friends is committed to keeping patrons, artists, staff, and our volunteers safe and well. To that end, we will have strict health and safety protocols in place in accordance with each venue’s regulations along with government rules, and patrons will be required to follow these protocols for everyone’s safety. All patrons will also be required to bring their own mask to attend concerts should they be required by the venue, state or federal regulations for indoor events. Masks will not be supplied at the entry to venues by Selby & Friends.

Selby & Friends requires all patrons to Check In to their venue using provided QR codes. Contact Tracing regulations will require this information. Please visit the Venue Information page for your venue for links to its specific COVID policy. If patrons do not have a mobile phone capable of checking in using the QR code, please bring a pen or pencil in order to manually sign in at the venue.

Contactless ticketing system

We will not be issuing paper tickets for our 2022 Season in most venues. We strongly encourage all patrons to use our online ticketing system. This is a secure portal, easy to understand and navigate, which allows patrons to pay by credit card. Selby & Friends will also make available purchases via direct deposit or EFT.

Tickets for 2023: After purchasing through our online portal, patrons will receive a receipt by email.

A confirmation email from Selby & Friends, with all relevant seating information, will be sent to purchasers after the 31st January 2023 when the Priority Seating Subscriber Renewal period ends. This confirmation email will serve as your concert entry ticket.

As you enter the concert, you can present it in virtual form on your mobile device or bring a printout. You will also need to bring a form of identification (please see further information below). There will be no traditional paper tickets sent to you by mail.

Paying by EFT or Direct Deposit: Patrons purchasing tickets directly from Selby & Friends may prefer to direct deposit to the Selby & Friends bank account or purchase using EFT. We will require a completed Ticket Order Form emailed to our office at so that we can identify your payment and confirm your purchase with a confirmation email.

If single seating is available on the day of a performance, we will accept credit card payments only through a tap and go system at the box office. We will not accept any cash payments.
