UK sent out a press release this afternoon to remind everyone of the Big Blue Madness ticket distribution. Tickets will be available Saturday, October 5 at 7:00 a.m. at the Memorial Coliseum ticket office and on Ticketmaster.com. Tickets are free again this year and there will be a limit of four tickets per person at Memorial Coliseum. Online orders will have a minimal service fee attached, and there will be a limit of four tickets per household. Online ticket ordering information will be available at a later date.
For those of you interested in camping out, you can begin camping out on October 2, no earlier than 5:00 a.m. UK asks that all campers set up their forts in an orderly fashion with respect for the neighboring campers. If you act up, you’ll be removed from the line.
