The Charlie Daniels Band concert is sold out and no tickets are available at the door, according to representatives from Finger Lakes Casino and Racetrack.
The Charlie Daniels Band Concert scheduled for this Wednesday, July 17, at Finger Lakes Casino & Racetrack as part of the Free Summer Concert Series is a sold out event. Those who do not have tickets at this point will not be able to gain admission to the show and are asked not to arrive at the venue expecting to obtain a ticket. No tickets will be available at the door.
A total of 6,000 tickets were made available at Finger Lakes Casino & Racetrack and through Entercom Radio (WBEE/WCMF/WBZA/WPXY) and were very quickly obtained by concert goers.
“Response to this show was very enthusiastic,” said Finger Lakes Casino & Racetrack president and general manager Chris Riegle. “We’re looking forward to a great evening.”
The new procedure of requiring tickets for admission to the free shows was initiated after a much higher than expected crowd arrived for the REO Speedwagon concert on June 19 and caused severe traffic and parking issues, while also leaving several people unable to attend after the facility reached capacity.
Tickets will also be required for the Gretchen Wilson show on August 7, with tickets available at Finger Lakes Casino & Racetrack beginning at 8 a.m. on Thursday, July 18.
Concert goers must be 18 years-old or older to attend. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for each concert with opening acts take the stage beginning at 7 p.m. Parking is free, however tailgating is prohibited.
