“You going out tonight, bro?” one student asked another.

“I definitely want to. I mean, how many nights do we have left?” the second responded.

“I mean, but where are we going to go?”

Students will be able to use their original tickets, or have them re-printed by the Carrier Dome Box Office.

Update at 10:10 a.m. on April 18

The Carrier Dome Box Office reached out to the affected students, saying that the error ocurred "due to an error at the Ticketmaster processing center". Students will be able to use the original tickets that were shipped because the barcodes on them will still be active. If students are unable to get their original tickets, the Box Office will re-print them. This will, in turn, void the barcodes on the original tickets.

Per the email, this error only applied to floor tickets for Block Party.
