Hundreds of tickets to be released to sold-out GFLA shows, available at box office only

WILMINGTON — Fans that didn’t receive tickets to sold-out concerts at Greenfield Lake Amphitheater will have another chance to score them.

Live Nation announced it will release tickets for sale at its amphitheater box office, to be purchased in person only this Saturday.

“We wanted to be sure the extra tickets got in the hands of locals,” Live Nation general manager Ryan Belcher said. “We will not be putting these tickets online unless [they] are not sold at the Saturday event.”

Some of the high-demand concerts include Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, Umphrey’s McGree, St. Paul and the Broken Bones, and Michael Franti and Spearhead, among others.

A hundred tickets for each sold-out show will be made available, which is for roughly 10 of the 22 concerts GFLA announced so far this season.

An asterisk denotes shows that sold out before press:

  • Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real *
  • Indigo Girls *
  • April 16: Father John Misty
  • April 20: Spafford
  • April 22: Judah & the Lion *
  • April 28: Umphrey’s McGee * 
  • Ben Folds
  • Citizen Cope
  • An Evening with Dark Star Orchestra 
  • Rival Sons: The Darkfighter
  • St. Paul & the Broken Bones * 
  • Sierra Ferrell * 
  • June 3: Futurebirds
  • Rodrigo y Gabriela
  • Straight No Chaser: The Yacht Rock Tour
  • flipturn
  • Pigeons Playing Ping Pong 
  • Allen Stone
  • Michael Franti & Spearhead *
  • Tommy Emmanuel 
  • Nickel Creek 
  • Mary Chapin Carpenter

The move comes as some locals have decried troubles regarding online access, not being able to secure a place in line in a timely fashion before shows max out. Belcher told city council in January, in 2022’s concert season, roughly 59% of tickets sold were to people not living in Wilmington. This also includes downtown’s Riverfront Park venue, Live Oak Bank Pavilion.

However, the released tickets this Saturday are only centered around GFLA concerts. Live Nation did not respond when asked if this model could be used for sold-out Riverfront Park concerts.

Resale tickets are available to most sold-out shows at both venues on Live Nation’s site through its verified resale listings. Yet, it often means paying more, due to online scalpers posting them for double or more the original cost.

For instance, when the Indigo Girls went live last month, tickets retailed for $45. According to what’s listed currently through Live Nation’s verified resales, third-party tickets are going for $158 each.

This weekend’s release means buyers have a chance again to secure a ticket at face value. Some fees may apply to in-person sales; aside from tax, there is a box-office fee, for example. The box office issues a digital ticket via text that syncs to the Live Nation app.

Tickets will be available on a first-come, first serve basis, April 1, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Any remainders will then be posted to Live Nation’s website.

Greenfield Lake’s box office is open every Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for all concert ticket purchases.

“We’ve got a fun line up featuring rock, pop, country, jazz, R&B, folk and more,” Live Nation noted in a release. “We’re excited to open our Box Office on Saturday, April 1 to offer fans another 100 tickets for each show.”
