QUESTION: How did you determine the ticket price?

ANSWER:  The $125 ticket price ($100 for members) includes the book, which retails at $75.  In addition to the book, each ticket includes access to the Hall of Fame interview, access to the Geddy Lee book signing, a commemorative credential, and access to all of the Rock Hall’s exhibits, including the new Geddy Lee bass guitar exhibit.  We are also screening Rush’s complete 2013 Induction footage in our Main Exhibit Hall's Forest City Theater.

QUESTION: I am a Rock Hall member but was unable to get tickets during the presale.  Can I try again during the general public sale?

ANSWER:  Yes! Members who are unable to purchase tickets during the presale can try again during the general public sale starting at 10am on Monday, January 14 and will still be eligible for the discounted member price of $100.

QUESTION:  My friend/spouse/partner is coming, but doesn’t want the book.  Do I really need to buy the full ticket package ($100 member / $125 non-member)?

ANSWER:  Yes, the event ticket including the book is the only ticket available for this event.  The extra book can make a great gift for the Rush fan or music lover in your life!  

QUESTION:  I don’t want to buy the full-price ticket and/or the event is sold out, but want to come to the Rock Hall that day.  What can I do?

QUESTION:  I already bought a GA ticket for this day and now would like to upgrade to the Rush Fan Day ticket option?  How do I do that?
