Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday morning, Jan. 8 Sunday, Jan. 20, for Legends Lounge in Verizon Arena, a space where people can go to avoid the hoi polloi and drink and eat.

Until tickets go on sale in the morning, we won’t know what they’ll run. Verizon’s news release says the lounge, located to the left of the box office at the main entrance, will include a “premium, full buffet”; domestic beer, wine, sodas and water; a bar serving alcohol, “VIP bathrooms”; large screen televisions and music; and private merchandise shopping.


The lounge will open a half hour before doors open to the general public, and will operate for “most events.”

The first second music show in Verizon’s 2019 lineup is Metallica. The press release said nothing about a dress code, so you can probably wear your Metallica “Call of Ktulu” T-shirt when you drop in for a buffet meal.


CLARIFICATION: The first show is Justin Timberlake on Jan. 17, but apparently there will be no lounge tickets for that date. The arena website says they won’t be available until Jan. 20. The arena’s press release yesterday said tickets would be available today, but it jumped the gun a bit, saying tickets would be available “tomorrow” and listing Metallica as the first in the lineup.
