I won two tickets from KINK radio in Portland a few months ago. (The give away tickets every year) They told me I would be called when the wristbands arrived. They called me and told me that I could pick up the tickets anytime after last Friday. BUT that for some reason, they weren't able to get the wristbands as originally thought. They gave me hard LiveNation tickets and said that I would need to exchange them for bracelets at the Will Call/Wristband booth. Anyone else have something similar?
I wouldn't worry about it. Promotional tickets are typically different from the general admission kind. I've heard about people receiving hard tickets in the past after winning them from radio stations or contests. If you want to be certain, give Live Nation a call and ask them to verify the barcode numbers.
