Sports that all the paperwork is about to be signed and everything has been agreed upon. “We resolved all of the issues and now we’re waiting for the paperwork. I said on the call that if what we agreed upon is in the paperwork we receive, we will sign it and the tickets will be released.”
Tickets are looking to be pretty pricey for fans to attend as the stages of pricing goes as followed: $7,500, $5,000, $3,500, $2,500 and $1,500. According to the report, tickets could go on sale as soon as today.
