Our First Arrival event will now take place at Zellerbach Hall on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley

The location we always dreamed about for our fans has now become available!

This will allow for MUCH better sight lines of all the action and a more complete, all-encompassing Shock experience for all our fans.

Our long-standing partnership with Cal will allow us to utilize their expansive infrastructure and tailor the event to a unique experience we know you will love.

Do I need new ticket if I already purchased one?

All benefits of your tickets will be transferred including any VIP, early access, meet and greets, ring ceremony, etc. Doors will open at same time, and re-entry is allowed with credential and ticket.

What format do my tickets need to be in?

You must present either a shipped ticket, a digital ticket, or a printed ticket.

How will seating work at Zellerbach Hall?

Three levels of seating will all be general admission so you can sit with whomever you like. If you signed up to be a VIP you get early entry to pick the best seats in your section.
