Each non-purchase unique code will equal up to 15 entries (depending on whether you also entered via the purchase method above and received any other entries that day, for a total of 15 entries per day). The non-purchase unique code must then be entered on the Website, as outlined above. Limit one (1) non-purchase unique code request per day.

    Limit 15 entries per person/email address per day, regardless of method of entry or combinations of methods of entry. Limit one (1) use per unique code. Sponsor assumes no responsibility or liability to any person for any attempt to re-use or re-enter any unique code that has been previously used, entered, or incorrectly entered. Possession of a receipt or email with a unique code is not valid proof of having entered the Sweepstakes. Entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. ET on the "Enter By Date" outlined in the chart above to be entered in the random drawing for that location's concert(s). Entries will not be carried forward to subsequent concerts' random drawings, if any.

If entering via mobile device, normal phone/data and usage charges imposed by your phone service may apply. Standard data rates may apply if entering via mobile device.

Potential winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the entry. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, interrupted or unavailable network server or other connection; miscommunications; failed phone or computer or telephone transmissions; technical failure; jumbled, scrambled or misdirected transmissions; late, lost, incomplete, delayed, or misdirected Entries; or other error of any kind whether human, mechanical, or electronic.  CAUTION: Any attempt to deliberately damage any website, or undermine the legitimate operations of the Sweepstakes, is a violation of the criminal and civil laws.  Should such an attempt be made, the Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such participant to the fullest extent permitted by law and to disqualify such participant from the Sweepstakes.  In the event the Sweepstakes is compromised by virus, bug, unauthorized human intervention, or other causes beyond the control of Sponsor that corrupts or impairs the administration, security, fairness, or proper play of the Sweepstakes, Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to suspend or terminate the Sweepstakes and award the applicable prizes from among all eligible entries received for each concert prior to cancellation. Sponsor is not responsible for lost, late, misdirected, corrupted, or incomplete entries. Proof of submission is not proof of receipt by Sponsor.

The Sponsor and its agencies are not responsible for technical, hardware, software or telephone malfunctions of any kind, lost or unavailable network connections, or failed, incorrect, incomplete, inaccurate, garbled or delayed electronic communications caused by the user or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in this Sweepstakes or by any human error which may occur in the processing of the entries in this Sweepstakes. The Sponsor reserves the right at its sole discretion to disqualify any individual that tampers or attempts to tamper with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or Website; violates the official rules; or acts in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner, or with intent to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass any other person. Any attempt by any person to deliberately undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law.
