Frequently Asked Questions
Can I attend an event that is listed as 18+/21+ if I'm under 18 years of age?
Underage persons can only attend age-limited events if they are accompanied by their own parent or legal guardian, who will require their own ticket and need proof of guardianship.
- Could an older sibling, relative or friend's parent accompany?
- What if my 18th birthday is only in xxx days/months?
Nope. This is a steadfast policy and we allow for no exceptions.
Why is a show 18+?
Age limitations are determined by a variety of factors, but are usually decided by the performer's management.

Does First Avenue offer seating?
First Avenue no longer offers Sightline Seating reservations to the public. We're primarily a general admission, standing room event venue. However, there is a nightly trivia contest through our Twitter feed that awards a reserved sightline table. @FirstAvenue will tweet out a trivia question about an hour after doors open, and participants must be present to win. First Avenue's Membership program also reserves a sightline table nightly, which can be claimed by the first Member to ask for it at will call after doors open. For any open tables or stools that remain, seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
