Communications Director, Bryn Ramjoue´ said, "We put together four packages of six concerts each that we hope appeal to every type of music fan while giving you a summer of shows." She added, "Early availability of ticket packages should take a little pressure off first day ticket sales." Packages include one general admission ticket to six concerts as outlined in each package.  There are four packages.  No substitutions.  Once individual tickets go on sale and a show sells out, the package containing that concert will no longer be available.  Package price is based on Garden Membership. Add $30 to each package for General Public pricing. Garden memberships start at $35 and include a year of benefits.
