This is the only concert of the year where Mountain View residents cannot take advantage of the resident ticket program to purchase tickets in advance. However, for other concerts Mountain View residents must get a resident identification card first at the box office. To do so they need to bring a photo ID and provide proof of residency, like a utility bill. Once they have the card, residents can stop by on resident ticket sale days—usually the two-days before the tickets go on sale—from 12 p.m. 2 p.m. After the pre-sale, residents can purchase during the regular box office hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Shoreline Amphitheatre reserves 300 tickets for residents—100 each in of the different seating levels. This is a result of a 2006 lease agreement between the city of Mountain View and the concert venue.
For the Bridge School Benefit tickets are $150 and $75 for reserved seats and $35 for general admission lawn plus applicable charges. There are a limited number of 4 packs of general admission lawn tickets for only $99 plus charges.
Proceeds from these concerts benefit The Bridge School, a program for the communicative and educational development of children with severe speech and physical impairments.
Past performers at the Bridge School Benefit Concerts have included Paul McCartney, Arcade Fire, Metallica, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen and Green Day.
CORRECTION: Mountain View Patch erroneously wrote that local residents could get tickets to the Bridge School Benefit Concert has part of the Resident Ticket Program. However, this is the only concert of the entire year where this is not the case.
Don't miss a thing in Mountain View!
