Get your Spree on
UPDATE: You can stop clicking refresh now. All the tickets are officially gone. A spokesperson for Klyde Warren Park reports 6,000 free tickets were claimed by 11 am. There's a silver lining, though. There are more than 50 free (and ticketless) events going on during the weekend of October 27 and 28. If you had your heart set on the Spree, you can still purchase a ticket to the concert for $200.
UPDATE: As of 10:25 am, the free concert tickets appear to be sold out. However, according to an official at Klyde Warren Park, they may not actually all be gone. As the tickets are selling much quicker than anticipated, it's causing the site to display a sold out message. Try refreshing the page to see if any are still availble.
Details have finally been released on how you and yours can get your hands on the 6,000 free tickets available for The Concert for Dallas, the first big event Klyde Warren Park will host during its opening weekend celebration.
Starting at 10 am Tuesday, fans can log on to klydewarrenpark.com, click on the link for tickets on the homepage and submit their order. That order will then give you a confirmation sheet that you take to any participating Chase bank branch or Albertsons supermarket, where you'll exchange the sheet for wristbands, which will serve as your tickets to the festivities. With only 6,000 available, you'd better move fast.
Those who are willing to pony up for a VIP experience at the concert can pay $200 for a ticket that will include food, open bar, valet parking and a membership to the Friends of the Park organization.
In addition to the Polyphonic Spree and Trombone Shorty, DJ Lucy Wrubel will serve as an opening act, and a fireworks display will be the concert's grand finale.
