We encourage all patrons to arrive early to the venue to allow enough time for you and your guests to move through the security screening process. We suggest you leave any valuable and unnecessary items at home.
Please note that all bags will be searched prior to entering the venue, and no large bags or backpacks are permitted in the venue. You may also be asked to empty your pockets of all items so they can be examined.
Certain events may involve pat-down searches. Pat-down searches will only be performed by qualified designated security personnel. Fans that refuse to submit to either a visual or pat-down search shall be refused entry.
Due to health and safety, all guests must wear a shirt and shoes at all times.
