Will Call Information and Policies
Will call is located in the main lobby of Gate 1 at Xcel Energy Center. Will call windows open 90 minutes prior to the scheduled event and will generally remain open through the start of the third period for Minnesota Wild games. Will call for concerts and other events will vary based on the specific performance. Once the box office has closed during an event, all unclaimed will call tickets are taken to the security desk at the main entrance for the convenience of late arriving guests.
Will call tickets will only be released to the person whose name appears on the will call envelope or whose name was provided in the Ticketmaster transaction at the time of purchase. No person will be given tickets designated for another person without prior authorization. Proper photo identification is required (valid driver’s license or passport) in order to claim will call tickets. An order confirmation number and purchasing credit card may also be required, if applicable. A signature from the person authorized to pick up the tickets will be obtained at the time will call tickets are claimed. Signatures will remain on file for future reference. Name changes will not be accepted via phone and information regarding will call tickets will not be given out over the phone.
Mobile Entry / Digital Tickets
Xcel Energy Center events use digital tickets for mobile entry to access the arena for most events. Digital tickets are a mobile form of ticket delivery from Ticketmaster. A digital ticket contains a square QR code that is accessible using the TM App from the App Store or the TM App from Google Play on your smartphone. Guests present their phone at the gate with the QR code visible. The QR code will be scanned at the gate and a seat locator will be printed indicating seat location(s).
The Xcel Energy Center Box Office holds a lottery for most events the day tickets go on sale to the public. The lottery procedure is used for reasons of safety and fairness for most shows at Xcel Energy Center and Roy Wilkins Auditorium. Informational procedures and notes are as follows:
Numbered wristbands will be distributed in numerical order beginning one hour prior to the on sale time and concluding 10 minutes prior to the on sale time. After receiving your wristband, you may leave the facility as long as you return prior to the drawing. You must be present at the time of the drawing or you will forfeit your spot. No exceptions.
At approximately 10 minutes prior to the on sale time, a single number will be drawn. The bearer of the wristband with this number will be designated “first in line." The remaining lottery participants will line up in numerical order following the person and number now designated "first in line." A building staff member will assist in organizing the line and ensuring guests are in the proper order.
Shortly before the on sale time, a staff member will direct ticket buyers to the designated windows in an orderly fashion to purchase tickets. One person at a time will be directed to the window.
Once at the ticket window, guests will state the number of tickets and which price range they desire to purchase. The ticketing system automatically searches for the best available tickets. Only best available seating is sold during on sales; specific seats may not be requested at this time. Once those guests in the on sale line have been helped, the box office is able to assist with specific ticket search requests, subject to availability.
Gift cards are available for purchase online or in person at the Xcel Energy Center Box Office. Gift cards may be used to purchase tickets in person at the box office, at most concession stands in the arena, and for merchandise in the Hockey Lodge. Gift cards may also be purchased through the mail or via fax. Orders received by mail or fax are subject to a $10.00 handling fee per order.
