Hot 10 Member Pre-Sale

The Hot 10 Member Pre-Sale has ended, but tickets can still be purchased to these amazing shows! Please check back near the end of the 16-17 season for our 17-18 Member Pre-Sale; where BlackRock Members will get first access to the hottest shows, at the lowest prices of the year.

We’re getting ready to announce our full 2016-2017 season at BlackRock, but before we do, we want to offer our members access to the hottest tickets first.

Last year, we sold out more than 50% of our shows. Many were disappointed that they were shut out of the top-notch artists BlackRock has become known for. Our intimate theater can only hold so many patrons! We’ve taken the liberty of predicting ten shows in the 2016-2017 season that we know will sell out.
