Concertgoers can request tickets up to 12 individual shows or opt to request a 44-show package and up to 11 individual shows. There is a two ticket limit per show, per customer. All tickets for the inaugural run of shows are non-transferable and non-refundable.

Ticket confirmation emails will be sent on a show-by-show basis over the course of four days starting Monday, April 10th. If a request is confirmed, fans will receive a follow up email with instructions to add mobile tickets to their Ticketmaster account.

For fans that cannot use the tickets they have purchased, The Atlantis will offer a Fan-to-Fan Face Value Ticket Exchange beginning May 1st via Ticketmaster. There will be no additional fees charged to Exchange users for buying or selling tickets on the Exchange.

Independent promoter IMP owns and operates the venue alongside 9:30 Club, The Anthem, Lincoln Theater and the nearby Merriweather Post Pavilion.
