Before the Show
ARRIVE EARLY AND TRAVEL LIGHT!
Doors open at least one hour prior to your show time, and there’s lots to do inside Radio City. Please be advised that the security screening may take some time. If you arrive any later than 30 minutes before the show, you risk missing the first few performance numbers. We strongly discourage guests from bringing unnecessary bags to Radio City, so leave extra items and packages at home as this can delay entry.
Be sure to stop by our merchandise stands, concession stands, and the Photo Experience featuring new spectacular items for 2019. Stands are located throughout Radio City Music Hall. Present your Chase card to complete your purchase for special savings.
