You can get a refund for the following reasons only: 1. if the Headliner has cancelled, 2. the performance date or time has significantly changed to a time that you are unable to attend, 3. Weather makes the performance not able to go on, 4. The venue location has been changed to the point that it makes it impossible for you to attend. You may not receive a refund because you liked one venue over another, and the date and time has not changed.

Q: My band wants to open up for so and so…

A: We can dedicate an entire section to bands and band etiquette but we will keep it fairly short.

Whether we are allowed to have local / regional bands, groups, or artists open up for a show is up to the Touring Artists Booking Agent and Management.

If we are allowed to have an opener on a specific show, we have some very specific rules for opening up. Please contact Aspire Presents for requirements in opening a concert for a headliner or a tour.

Please be sure to put in the subject what you are wanting to do and be SPECIFIC. We receive a lot of requests and even more emails, so put who you are and what show you are asking about in the subject. Do not send an email every day asking us, do not send vague emails, do not ask about opening up a list of our largest shows, do not send separate emails asking to open every show.

Keep in mind that we like to work with bands that have, above all, hard work ethic and who are humble and honest.
